Peace

I felt overwhelming peace when I came upon this lily. The pure white of the petals contrasted against the dark lily pads compelling me to consider the good and bad in the world. Often it seems as if the heinous crimes of this world can overpower hope; however, I believe as long as there is hope, there is salvation.
