A Real Reason for Peace: The Lily Voelkel Foundation


Afghanistan remains unstable after over a decade of intervention. Pakistan is on the edge of another coup. Iran continues to test the will of the west to enforce a nuclear standard. Israel challenges the resolve of the Middle East and the West simultaneously. China's perceived strength grows unchecked and questionably confirmed. The continent of Africa struggles with persistent conflict from within. The EU seems fractured. Hugo Chavez and Venezuela keep knocking at the Western hemisphere's door. The Arab spring has elapsed through seasons and continues into another spring. These and many other matters demonstrate there is a lot going on in the world. 

But, from time to time we need to step away from the world and just come home. I was moved by this story from a friend whose inspiration, enthusiasm, and hopefully positive outlook on life is a model actually worth following.  I encourage you to stop for a moment and learn about Lily. Then you may understand why there is so much to take advantage of each day.
