"The Peace That is Meant to Be"With Denise DeSimone
About The Service
"It isn't enough to talk about peace. One must believe in it. And it isn't enough to believe in it. One must work at it." - Eleanor Roosevelt
"We are here to be peaceful. We were born in peace. We are here to be joyful. We are here to celebrate life every moment. We are here to realize our one-ness. We are here to love on another. Not just this week, not just this season but every day, every week, every month, every season for every reason. I believe that deep in the heart of every human being lives a desire for peace."
