    'Let There Be Peace on Earth.'

    The impact of Mattie Stepanek¿s poetry on people, young and old, all over the world is well known. Six of his books on the New York Times best seller lists is surely evidence of that. For me, his prose in ' Just Peace' has had an even greater impact. Peace is a theme which runs through many of his poems so the subject is nothing new. What is different in this book is his presentation, with the collaboration of President Carter, of the very practical ways in which they see it can happen. One of Mattie¿s favorite songs was ¿Let there be peace on earth and let it begin with me.¿ This is the basis of Mattie¿s thesis for peace to take hold and spread: ¿Make peace an attitude. Make peace a habit. Make peace a reality.¿ He is addressing each of us individually -- without criticizing or minimizing the roles of governments and peace organizations. As a result of my service in World War II, including 38 months in Europe, peace has always been an elusive hope to me. It was not possible for me to really understand conscientious objectors in the face of the abject horrors opposing us. Peace organizations, while holding a certain attraction, seemed longer on organizing than on peace. By contrast, so long as I start with myself and those closest to me, I will have a realistic opportunity to make some contribution. In time, I believe, it could multiply. This for me is the genius of Mattie¿s challenge. It is very well worth examining and considering seriously.
