I case you were wondering how I am spending iPeace Day. I will drive now to Beer Sheva, my home town, to pick up my parents and bring them over to my house. My father is 87 and has difficulty walking, my mother is 78. There is just no possible way for them to get to a safe place in the 45 seconds which take a missle to get from Gaza to their house.

Since early this morning 5 Grad missiles fired by Hamas from Gaza hit my home town. One of them hit a class room at my high school (picture on top). Luckily school day was canceled because of the missiles and no one was hurt.

I was hoping for a happier iPeace Day for myself and for all of iPeace Palestinian members. maybe next year.

I refuse to lose hope. We need to find a way to talk to our Palestinian cousins. War will never be the solution.

I wish the rest of you can share your peace happily.

David,
How fortunate we are to live in the USA. Yes we have our problems, but they pale next to the distruction and deaths that occur in your country on a daily basis. Mother's are afraid to send their children to school because they may not return home. Children pray that they have a home to return to when the learning day is done.

We have been told that when we ask for something we will receive it. Sometimes our wishes take longer than we had hoped. There is a plan for all that occurs in our world. This plan moves in a timely fashion until each and every detail is complete. The peace we all are longing for is in the process. It is making its way around the world and resinates like the soft beating of a drum. The drum is the heartbeat of the people reaching out in prayer, thought and deed to make peace a reality for each and every one of us. .

Let us become one at heart and fulfill our desire for Peace on Earth. One day we will see that our efforts were not in vain. We will look to our brother and sisters, no matter where they are, and know that we have found our peace at last. We will rejoice in it's harmony and be glad in it.

Namaste'
Chrissy M.

I hope all people will realize one day that we are ALL brothers, because only then this vile violence can end.
Wish you all a peaceful, wonderful new year.

Dear David,
It is hard to imagine living in the midst of war. Such courage, faith and calm all Israelis and Palastinans must endure. I pray for the safety of you and your family and all the precious people who are victims in this unnessary war.

The devoted efforts that you and all members have put into ipeace inspires, empowers and entrains the vision of universal peace now and into the future for so many people. I am excited to tell as many people as I can about this wonderful site.

Thank You,
Love and Blessings for a Happy, Healthy and Peaceful New Year,
Hillary
