Will there be peace on earth for children?

It seems to me that is truly the great question of the ages.  Why haven’t societies been able to foster peace for the sake of their children ?

While traveling in Bosnia a year after the war ended, I found that question repeatedly playing in my head.  To date, I have not found a satisfactorily comprehensible answer.  But I do know this, it starts small, with every day gestures and it is the responsibility of the older generation to offer themselves as models of peaceable behavior to the young ones. Only then can we influence the future to be better than our own pasts to spare the lives, heartache and devastation caused by conflict.   I wish you peace.peace by the ocean
