Peace ad published in Faribault


NEARLY NINE HUNDRED MILES from Dallas, Texas, and an hour from Falcon Heights, Minnesota, a message of peace published this morning in my local newspaper, The Faribault Daily News.

The full-page ad on the back page of the front section comes from the Faribault Police Department and the Rice County Sheriff’s Department. In a succinct 13 words, these law enforcement officers deliver a powerful statement to our culturally diverse community.

It is the final three words that I find universally hopeful: Let Peace Prevail.

Let. Peace. Prevail.

    We have heard of this recent tragedy on our news. Really shocking and terribly sad. I’m just at a loss as to what to say but yes, those final three words are the cry of my heart. It just seems that living in peace is becoming less and less the norm and that’s truly horrifying xx

    This is a wonderful message to send. We each need to say, “Let there be peace. And let it begin with me.”
