…And Let it Begin with Me

Before we bow out a little early today, I’d like to share my favorite song of the season with you. And what better version than the one of children singing at an interfaith service during the Pope’s visit to Ground Zero?

With every step I take
Let this be my solemn vow…
To take each moment
And live each moment
In peace eternally.
Let there be peace on earth
And let it begin with me.

My holiday wish to you is…peace.
