I wish to call on all the citizens of Macon County and its surrounding areas to remember the importance of Sunday, Sept. 21. On that date over one half billion persons will join hands to observe International Day of Peace. This special day is set aside each year to remind all the peoples of the world that peace is not only a vision, but is a distinct possibility.
With so many conflicts and contentions going on throughout our planet we may sometimes feel that world peace is impossible. But such is not the case. When peace lovers around the world unite to pray for peace and work diligently for its establishment within our own communities, towns and countries, this hope can become reality. There must be alternatives to war.
