An "Ahhh haaa" moment.....

This was so profound and hit me hard so I had to share it.
"The price of peace is righteousness. Men and nations may loudly proclaim, 'Peace, peace,' but there shall be no peace until individuals nurture in their souls those principles of personal purity, integrity, and character which foster the development of peace. Peace cannot be imposed. It must come from the lives and hearts of men. There is no other way."
--Ezra Taft Benson ,Quoted By Thomas S. Monson, "Finding Peace",
Ensign, March 2004

That is a great quote, not just for the countries of the world, but also our homes :) Goes great with a fabulous book Erik and I are reading, The Anatomy of Peace.
