Tommy’s Plan for World Peace

Tommy’s fourth birthday party—from shrieking, laughing, jumping and even some swimming in the pool to pizza, fresh fruit and cake in the party room—is a success. But it’s what happens after the celebration that I want to tell you about. That’s when Tommy, tucked in for the night, shares his plan for world peace with his mom.

Tommy: Mom, when I grow up I’m going to tell all the bad people that they have to be good.

Lisa: That’s quite the goal!

Tommy: I’m going to tell all the people in all the countries that they have to be nice to their friends and share.

“Blessed are the peacemakers: for they shall be called the children of God.” (Matthew 5:9)

Go for it, Tommy!

  4. Its nice to read how Tommy sees the world that some adult dont.
    Nice blog Grandma !! Go for it.. keep blogging.

  5. Thank you very much. He and Lisa picked me up after a test at the hospital the other day. I was pretty groggy. I don’t remember much, except holding Tommy’s hand and Lisa’s arm holding me up. What a precious family!
