Let us kick off the new year with an excerpt from a poem written by the late great Dr. Robert Muller, a world reknowned peace advocate who passed away on September 20, 2010:
Render others peaceful
Be a model of peace
Irradiate your peace
Love passionately the peace
Of our beautiful planet
On behalf of everyone here at Global Visionaries, may peace be with you for all of 2011!
