Doves.jpgDoes anyone think children as young as three and four aren’t aware that we’re in the midst of an awful war? Take a look at what my friend John Seminerio emailed:

We were at the Block Association Holiday Party last week for pictures w/ Santa. During a break … Santa and I had a little talk. He told me for the first time ever, six or seven children asked him for “Peace on Earth”. Santa was floored. Most years, one kid out of hundreds will ask for peace. I thought that was kind of heartening. It won’t fit down a chimney, and can’t be hung in a stocking. Then again, the great gifts of life are usually like that.
