What if there were no hatred? No ill will? No jealousy? What if there were just reverence? Calmness?
What if on one night a year everyone paused to reflect on the good?
It’s happened before. Been documented in history, retold in books and recorded in songs.
On Dec. 24, 1914, German troops began decorating the area around their trenches of Ypres, Belgium, for Christmas.
They put candles on trees and sang Christmas carols. One of those was Stille Nacht (Silent Night.) British troops in trenches across from them responded by singing English carols.
