-- Robert Alan Silverstein

We can only help make our lives and our world more peaceful, when we ourselves feel peace. Peace already exists within each of us, if we only allow ourselves to feel its comfort.

Peace of mind gives us the strength to keep trying and keep walking along the path that we KNOW is right for our lives.
-- Robert Alan Silverstein
