It's difficult for me to understand why violence and more than that, terrorism exists. Less than a year and a half ago, I was moved by stories from one of our own - Aino, then and now living in Israel. She spoke emotionally about the bombings that were at times a daily event.
Yesterday's terrorist attacks on the city of Paris brought back those memories, and again I can do nothing more than express my sincerest wish for world peace. This quote from Mother Teresa speaks to me. I will be mindful to pray for peace daily.
