Shalom.  We speak of peace but know not what it is.  It is elusive, seemingly unreachable, just beyond our grasp.  We speak of peace but prefer to hold on to old grudges.  We desire a future with peace but hang on to a conflict ridden past.  Can we ever accomplish peace?  Or do we prefer to remain a slave to tension?  It takes work, effort, and pain.  Is it worth achieving?
