Peace It’s ironic It’s irenic So….let’s play a game we’ll dump out the contents of 87 different jigsaw puzzles mix them all up and then reassemble them as ONE unified whole. This must be done without altering any of the edges shapes or beliefs of any of the pieces. We must also preserve the integrity and culture of every empty box while maintaining the dignity and ethnicity of each of the eighty-seven thousand individual pieces seeking inclusion. Alas, it would seem that peace is an ironic irenic dream John G. Lawless ©1/13/2022

Peace broken down into 'manageable bites' = Pieces.

Outstanding, John. You have so well described the complexity of our society, our culture (even), and certainly our government. Nice work. I enjoyed it. In fact, it's a FAVE because I want to be reminded of it from time to time!

thanks Milton, I woke up with the word peace rattling around in my head and couldn't really come up with a solid definition of the word...
