Poem from Ecclesiastes
(ick-lee-zee-ast-ees)
For everything there is a season,And a time for every matter underheaven. (everyone)
A time to be born, and a time to die;A time to plant, and a time to pluck up whatis planted;A time to kill, and a time to heal;A time to break down, and a time to buildup;A time to weep, and a time to laugh;A time to mourn, and a time to dance;A time to throw away stones, and a time togather stones together;A time to embrace, And a time to refrainfrom embracing;A time to seek, and a time to lose;A time to keep, and a time to throw away;A time to tear, and a time to sew;A time to keep silence, and a time to speak;A time to love, and a time to hate,A time for war,
and a time for peace

Poem by Carl Sandburg:
Choose
: The single clenched fist lifted and ready,Or the open hand held out and waiting.
Choose
:For we all meet by one or the other.
Poem by Oscar Romero:
Peace is not the product of terror or fear,Peace is not the silence of cemeteries,Peace is not the silent result of violentrepression.Peace is the generous, tranquil contributionof all, towards the good of all.Peace is dynamism. Peace is generosity.It is our right, and it is our duty.
Quote from Gandhi:
 
If we are to reach real peace in the world we shallhave to begin with the children and not bypassing fruitless, idealistic resolutions, but bygoing from love to love and peace to peace, untilat last all the corners of the world are coveredwith that peace and love for which the wholeworld hungers.
Poem by Brecht: (
Brekt 
)
General, your tank is a powerful vehicle.It smashes down forests and crushes men.But it has one defect:It needs a driver
.
General, your bomber is powerful.It flies faster than a stormand carries more than an elephant.But it has one defect:It needs a mechanic.
 
General, man is very useful.He can fly and he can kill.But he has one defect:
He can think.
Healing Over 
by Virginia Hinchman
 
The door hangs sadly off its hingeslike a wounded soulThe roof is caved in:
