p is for peace

The first peace, which is the most important, is that which comes within the souls of people when they realize their relationship, their oneness with the universe and all its powers, and when they realize that at the center of the universe dwells the Great Spirit, and that this center is really everywhere, it is within each of us.
Black Elk (1863-1950) Wichasha Wakan (medicine man) of the Oglala Lakota

Establishing lasting peace is the work of education; all politics can do is keep us out of war.
Maria Montessori (1870-1952), educator & philosopher

p is also for play!
