International Day of Peace For Kenya

When you hear the word peace, what comes to your mind?  Is it an abiding sense of safety?  I tranquil day in a hammock in the middle of the woods?  Today marks a date that has been established by Kenya as the International Day For Peace In Kenya.   Kenya has had many challenges to peace, including tribal warfare during elections in December 2007. 

There are many in Kenya who are suffering with hunger and thirst, who lack a sense of safety and security.  Today, remember them.  Today, I ask you to join in making a difference in Kenya.  Make a commitment to volunteer your time, serve with a development agency, support the efforts of others.  Write a letter to your congressional representative, just do something!

Thanks for being active in the pursuit of peace for the people of Kenya!
