You chose: peace

  • Yet in times like these, when tensions run high, people must search the depths of their hearts for the power to hold high the flag of peace. Never before has it been so important to recall the words of the Lord: “Peace be with you.”

  • Last week I received a last-minute invitation from Brooklyn Borough President Eric L. Adams and "The Committee for Frate Francesco” to attend the grand opening of the historic “Frate Francesco: Friar Francis: Traces, Words, Images “exhibition on Tuesday, December 12th. The impressive four-page e-mail attachment declared it was “a non-transferrable, attendance strictly limited invitation” to which I promptly replied, explaining to my wife that I had to go it alone. However, when I got to Brooklyn Borough Hall early, as I usually am, I discovered that I was inexplicably “not on the list.” Having a lot of prior experience not being a V.I.P., I was not the least surprised; but grateful that I was able to convince a somewhat befuddled staff member that “there must have been a mistake” which wasn’t mine.”
