it was amazing

"In our Joy, we think we hear a whisper.
At first it is too soft. Then only half heard.
We listen carefully as it gathers strength.
We hear a sweetness.
The word is peace."

Amazing Peace is the perfect way for a family to start its holiday season. In her sparse but beautiful prose, Ms. Angelou reminds us of what is really important this season. It's not the flashing lights, brightly colored packages, or even the stress. It is very simply, that "We look at each other, then into ourselves. and we say without shyness or apology or hesitation: Peace, My Brother. Peace My Sister. Peace My Soul."

I can't think of a better family Christmas tradition than to spend an evening with the family sharing this book and CD with each other.
