Peaceful Holiday WishesDecember 17, 2014

​​“If we have no peace, it is because we have forgotten that we belong to each other.” Mother Teresa.

Hello DHS,

I don’t know about you, but I could use some peace this holiday season: peace and quiet, peace of mind, peace in our communities, peace on earth…I know, I know – a big wish. But one that’s not totally out of reach when we commit ourselves to compassion, forgiveness, gratitude, and striving to find the good in ourselves and others.

And so for all of our partners in this work, and for the people we work on behalf of – my wish for each of you is peace.

Whatever the light of the season is for you, whether it’s the festive twinkling of lights on the drive home, the sparkle of the Christmas tree, or the soft glow of candlelight from the menorah or kinara, I hope that you take the time to enjoy and celebrate with those who matter most to you. And in those moments, may you find peace.

~Erinn ​​
