Peace in the world

A Holiday Wish for Peace and Prosperity in the World

My best wishes to you for a joyous and happy holiday with your family and loved ones. Millions of people around the world are caught in the crossfire of deadly conflicts and once again will go to sleep hungry and without roofs over their heads.

My fervent wish this holiday season is for more joy and prosperity for those in need and peace in the world. World Food Program USA supports the lifesaving work of the United Nations World Food Programme, the leading agency fighting hunger in the world.

I just donated — it’s the holiday gift that is most meaningful to me this year.

  1. And Happiest of Holidays to you, Jeannette. It has been a pleasure reading your blogs throughout the year.

    No one should be hungry or homeless…

  2. Thank you, Jeannette, for the best wishes and the reminder that there are millions of people out there who know not why they should even consider celebrating the holidays.
    They worried about their lives and that of their children. Their biggest prayer is for peace and tranquility, for warm clothes and some food.

    They are crying for a better tomorrow, and to be able to live long enough to witness it.

    I pray to The Creator that these brothers and sisters of ours find some comfort, and will do my very best to contribute for their well being.Greetings to you and yours from Mozambique, Jeannette

    • Emidio — it’s heartbreaking to realize how much poverty and hardship there is in the world. I feel blessed that I live in comfort. Let’s hope for a better world in 2019.

  3. Thank you for your thoughtful year end post, Jeannette. I too made a contribution to charities directly supporting the firefighters and victims of the CA wildfires. Right here, over there, human caused conflict or a changing climate, there’s no shortage of folks in need. And thank you for your posts throughout the year. I don’t always respond but I appreciate and look forward to them. Informative, thought provoking, and with a dash of dry humor, they’re always a good read. Happy holidays!
