As England and Europe Face Social Unrest, We Treasure Our Nation's Peace

My long and old friend, Don Woodard is a poet, a scholar and a man of deep insight. I love him for his ability to bring people together of different political and religious traditions and to give all the right to express opinions, but never to use opinions of politics and religion to destroy a friendship or relationship.  Opinions are not as important as the people we love. Something the world, especially the Middle East, and those reactionaries in the USA might consider.  I share this with you, read it and enjoy, especially in this season of the Independence Day of the USA.  Thank you Don Woodard, and Henry van Dyke, and Henry Longfellow
