"This will be our reply to violence: to make music more intensely, more beautifully, more devotedly than ever before." --
Leonard Berstein (1918-1990), conductor, composer, pianist, broadcaster, humanitarian.
Leonard Bernsteing reacted to the violence and wars of our world with this statement. He believed the consolation to life's
violence and wars was art, love and the hope for peace.
In reaction to the violence, remember there are many beautiful events in our world and they are available everyday in your own home, family and community.
Are you involved with the arts-music, art, poetry, writing, or dance? Do you play an instrument, draw, paint, write or dance?
Do you surround yourself with the love of family and friends?
Are you involved with organizations that promote peace or educate children or adults in peaceful resolution?
As people of all abilities we can participate in these activities, from the very simple to the most complicated. We can carry everything beautiful and the spirit of great kindness to the next level.
Our Wish to You this Holiday and for the New Year is to seek out and focus on these resolutions!!
May Peace Be With You and May Love and Hope Be Yours This Holiday and Always!
