Northern Ireland shows the way to peace

Here’s some good news from Friday’s New York Daily News. In short, the Ulster Defense Association, Northern Ireland’s largest paramilitary group, has destroyed all of its weapons.

Many of us thought that peace would never come to Northern Ireland; the troubles spanned decades and claimed thousands of lives, but the power of peace and love (combined with honest dialogue and negotiations) allowed both Catholics and Protestants to put aside their differences and share governance.

Let this serve as a reminder that peace can be realized, and that it comes from each of us and from there spreads throughout the world.
