Postcrossing Wednesday-World Peace

This postcrossing postcard from China came in January from a young woman with the most amazing message:
"I look to the new year and my wish for you:
Peace within your heart
Love from family and friends
Hope to make it through each day
Sunshine to light the day
A tear to show compassion
A heart to hold the love.
Happy New Year friend!"

I am of the generation that grew up with images of Chinese people riding bicycles in shapeless Mao suits wearing caps with red stars on them. China was one of the hated Communist enemies. Yes, the country of China has changed greatly since the 1970's. But a postcard message like this changes my thinking, permanently. Maybe there is a chance for world peace to grow, one human interaction at a time. That's why my postcards now say at the bottom, "Work for World Peace" or "Support World Peace."
