Practicing Peace

This fall at Perry School, the new theme is “Practicing Peace”. So, how do we practice peace in our daily lives? We practice peace every day in the peace room, but one story sticks out. One afternoon, two of the peacemakers in the room got into a fight and it did not seem that either one was going to give in. However, after identifying the problem, hearing both sides perspectives and ultimately apologizing, both sides were back to being friends again. When we are willing to stop and listen to each other, it becomes much easier to forgive.
