Aaliyah Williams wanted to make a statement about peace. But not without using her favorite color: pink. The Bester Elementary School third-grader covered her paper pinwheel with hot pink marker. The pinwheel was one of 600 lining a grassy area in front of the school. Every student and faculty member made a pinwheel and placed it in the yard Thursday to celebrate the International Day of Peace. The day was established by a United Nations Resolution in 1981. A more recent resolution added that the day be a global cease-fire.

The students wrote or drew what peace meant to them on their pinwheels.

Christmas Day has the joy, but Christmas Eve has the spirit.   It's the calm before the paper-shredding, food-shoveling, battery-operated storm that, for better or worse, has come to define Christmas. We find that Christmas Eve - after the last store has closed and after the last cookie has been baked - is the most soulful time of the season, the time for taking a breath and enjoying the lighted tree and unripped rainbow of color beneath it. Perhaps some candles and the scent of pine complete the mood.

What is the advantage of having a pet microchipped and how does it work? As warmer weather approaches, the risks of animals running away or getting lost can increase. But a relatively new and quick procedure is available that can offer some peace of mind for pet owners. It's called microchipping, and Michael Lausen of the Washington County Humane Society said the tiny radio frequency identification chip has saved the lives of many lost animals. “By us being able to reunite the animal, we can find out who the owner is and get them back home, and they're less likely to be euthanized as an unwanted pet,” he said.

Reality doesn't get much harder than being diagnosed with amyotrophic lateral sclerosis or ALS. A cruel and steady wasting of neuromuscular functions that paralyzes its victims inch by inch, it's often more kindly referred to as Lou Gehrig's disease - named for the famous Yankee slugger who received his diagnosis in 1939. But there is nothing kind about ALS. There is no meaningful treatment. No cure. No magic pill that will reverse the symptoms. It's a taker - stealing the body's supply of strength and agility, the use of limbs and the ability to speak and swallow.

It is sobering to think that children who are in middle school have never known an America that wasn't at war. While not of the scale of world wars, we have still faced the daily reminder that we have men and women in harm's way, as reports of explosions, firefights and death reach our ears. As the years have marched on, it is perhaps too easy to slip into the mentality that this is the way it has always been and always will be. We pray that it is not. We long for an America at peace, which is, or should be, our normal condition.
