Dear Readers of Country Squire Magazine, I wish You all a peaceful and bountiful Sunday and week ahead.
Last month 72 years ago, the United States dropped an atomic bomb on the Japanese city of Nagasaki – just three days after dropping one on the city of Hiroshima. It is estimated that over 150,000 people were killed over those three days.
Fast forward to present day, the last few months have been met with anxiety and tension around threats of nuclear weapons and warfare. Leaders in North Korea continue to isolate their country as they threaten Creation with nuclear missiles. Leaders in the United States agitate and provoke with threats of destruction. It is during times like these when we likely feel the need to pray.
So, let us pray. For peace in Korea.
That Peace may come to dominate the Korean peninsula.
That war be avoided.
That North Korea achieve a sound government in time.
That the poor North Korean people soon escape their dictatorship which has led to nothing but poverty and peril.
That America and China find a way to channel peace on the peninsula.
