In 1912 a peasant walked into an abandoned home in France and saw these words written on a wall. He copied them down and the words said, “Make me a channel of your peace. Where there is hatred, let us sow love; where there is injury, pardon; where there is doubt, faith; where there is discord, unity; where there is error, truth; where there is despair, hope; where there is darkness, light; where there is sadness, joy.”
Dr. Martin Luther King in a letter from the Birmingham jail said, “I want to be remembered as a drum major for justice.” These were his marching orders, “Make us channels of your peace.”
