She rests easy in the dark night sky. Her gentle face reflects the peaceful light of eternity. We are trying to shelter against war, famine and earthly destruction. We are trying to close out angry evil sounds. We close our ears to the cry of pain. We close our eyes to shut out ugly visions. We sigh and breathe in dust-filled air. But, if you cast your eyes upward, she will remind you, that this too will pass. The beauty of our earth will survive in time. She will return to bathe us in her silver calming light until all is healed. Peace is patient.
