Minutes of peace

To the Catholic Sentinel:

I submit an idea for all ages and all faiths for promoting peace on earth.

Everyone has a number for one’s birth month and day.  Each day on the clock, that number appears twice, in the a.m and the p.m.  When you see that number on the clock, could you match your birth month and day number to the hour and minute on the clock for a minute of peace? 

As an example, a birthday on the 4th of July would correspond to the time of 7:04.  If this caught on, continuous minutes for peace could be offered by virtue of the variety of birth dates and differing time zones.  Would you join your unique minute with others for the cause of peace?  Together we can do so much.

Elaine White, Salem
