A Universal Holiday Symbol
A peace sign foliage wreath received international attention recently when a Colorado couple was chastised for their holiday decoration. The small town neighborhood association threatened to fine the couple $1000 for their display-described as "divisive" and "Satanic."
A Friends of Peace member in Waco thus placed a peace symbol light display (6 feet tall) on their roof in solidarity with the couple in Colorado. The image is seen here.
Actually, what symbol in this world could be more universal and inclusive. The hope for PEACE reaches the hearts of all peoples, and does not require adherence to any particular religious sect. For the "Holidays" are about the joy of life, and without peace, without survival, there can be no celebration.
