Daughter of peace

As I watched my daughter touch the Western Wall in Jerusalem, my mind was flooded with emotion. All I saw was such a pure innocent soul standing in a place with so much conflict and fighting. As I stood there I prayed for peace in the Middle East and resolution to all the conflict and hate that exists in the world. I pray that the world will be a better place for our children, and that the pureness and wholesomeness of the next generation will lead the world into peace and harmony.
