The art work above was created by my brother Kevin Junod years ago for holiday cards sent out to Citibank customers. My brother was thrilled at the time to have been one of the finalists chosen to have his work on the cards.

I can't help but think about what our vision of world peace was back in 1993. Back in 1993 we had a reasonable sense of safety here in America. We fell into a comfortable security that we never dreamed would be interrupted. 

It's been a week since the Newtown, CT tragedy and my heart aches still. So much loss and consuming grief the families must feel. Even in the midst of unspeakable tragedy there are still elements of the best that humanity offers. May God continue to comfort and wrap them in his warm embrace.

Sometimes when something like this happens I think of other parts of the globe that experience this sort of unsettled sense of security on a daily basis.

In the midst of chaos there always seems to be some whisper of a joyful peace. Peace in the sweet sound of a baby deep in slumber. I am particularly fond of the hush that hangs in the wee early mornings. The sound of a cat's purr can calm my heart so quickly.

Where do you find peace in your day?

In the coming days I wish you joy, comfort and a peaceful heart.

  1. How wonderful for you to have such a beautiful way to remember your brother. He was quite an artist, with a simple but powerful message. Unfortunately, not too many people heed that message. Happy Holidays.
