On the CBS Evening News, Scott Pelley interviewed Nazi death camp survivor Elie Weisel about “Peace on Earth”.  Mr. Weisel suggested that it is up to all of us as individuals to be part of bringing about world peace by simple gestures like helping others.  “Sometimes a handshake has the power of a [olive] branch” says Mr. Weisel.  Watch the full video HERE.

I wonder (as Scott Pelley would say) how we can continue with our small acts of kindness and simple heroism to bring Peace on Earth.  I think I may just have found a resolution for 2013.

In the wake of the horrible events of this past Friday, it is easy for us to get choked in fear, disillusionment, and think there is no good anywhere.  A friend posted this link on facebook as a reminder that there are still people doing good things.  We need to remember this.  We need to be part of it.  Find something you can do to make a difference in someone’s life.  You won’t regret it, I promise.  If you need some ideas, read the article HERE.
