Reba's song was coincidentally released at a time when people worldwide were united in their devastation at the tragic loss of passengers on MH17. It's a time when we are painfully aware of the need and desire for world peace.
As Simply Spirited! focuses on simple ways to promote values, including peace, Reba's song is a powerful way to promote student awareness for world peace. Celebrities including Keith Urban and Nicole Kidman have shown their support for Reba's initiative. How compelling it would be to have school faith communities endorse this initiative by prayerfully and vigorously singing and following the actions.
It is vital that along with the unified chorus, "Pray for Peace" our behaviour reflects the ideals of Reba's song. Our every day behaviour and actions can promote and encourage peace in our family and our community; the first step towards world peace. What is one action we can do today either individually or as a class that reflects Reba's ideals of "perseverance, ... fellowship and mostly love?"
