With every true friendship, we build more firmly the foundations on which the peace of the whole world rests. Thought by thought and act by act, with every breath we build more firmly the kingdom of non-violence that is the true home of the spirit of humanity
– Mahatma Gandhi
A large number of us gathered together to remember and celebrate the lives of dear Spirit of Peace friends who had passed away in the previous few months. It was a precious and intimate time. We honour their lives and remember each one of them with warmth, gratitude and love. Judy, one of those who passed away wrote the following poem which was read at the close of our gathering.
