#cyberpeacefare #My Peace Prose

We are our memories of the past, our imagination for a better future

and our actions in the present to make a little difference.

Nowadays, we possess a unique social media/personal cyberpower

The means to create a world peace uprising/tsunami

"Let there be peace on earth and let it begin with me." and u/us/all"

#Cyberpeacefare #To Make a Prairie #Be The Bee #Emily Dickinson

"To make a prairie it takes a clover and one bee,

One clover, and a bee

And revery,

The revery alone will do,

If bees are few.

(Be the Bee.)
