The World At Our Fingertips

I wish I could just send out a memo on the Internet and declare peace for all as a special Christmas blessing

The other day I heard from a friend in Australia who reads this newsletter.  It brought home to me the fact that with the Internet, the whole world is right there at our fingertips. I had an e-mail with photo attachments from a friend in China just two weeks ago. Until I went to the Far East to fight a war at the age of twenty-one, the farthest I had ever been from our home in Detroit was to a beach near Toronto, Ontario.That experience sure broadened my horizons and when I began traveling to Europe with airline passes I felt that I surged light years ahead in my outlook.  You’d think that with our modern means of communication we might do a better job of getting along with one another.  The war goes on and I haven’t even a clue how we might declare peace and bring the troops home.  The one major thing that was not achieved on my wish list again this year was world peace. I just don’t understand why we can find peace for everyone in this world but l’ll sure pray for it on a continuing basis.  I wish I could just send out a memo on the Internet and declare peace for all as a special Christmas blessing. – Art Fettig
