Henry Wadsworth Longfellow wrote the song, "I Heard the Bells on Christmas Day," during the Civil War, when his son was wounded, and his wife died. Even though this song was written years ago, it still resonates with us, as we celebrate Christmas in a time of war.
Today I read in my Bible, "Too long have I lived I am for peace;
But in this I have hope: that God is not dead, He doesn't sleep. The wrong shall fail, the right prevail. With peace on earth, good will to men.
