Welcome to the COZY COTTAGE. This is the furever home of the memory of Miss Peach, our 18 year old Devon Rex angel kitty. I am Miss Hunny Bunny, she asked me to pour you a cuppa catmint tea as you read our old fashion mewsings about this and that. Please come by often...one lump or two? Now our precious Hunny Bunny is also an angel cat...please let me be your hostess at the cozy cottage...my name is Miss Hope.

Remember...only in our tomorrows will we realize what we had in our yesterdays.

CAT ART SUNDAY~Unforgettable 11/22/63

46 years and his words still burn in my heart...his courage inspires...his flame burns forever...
For Cat Art Sunday I want to show you mommies new coffee mug she found at Goodwill for a few quarters! Isn't it just so colorful...she likes it because it has a couple of ginger kitties on it that are not in the litter box...
Mr. Whiskers mommy Roberta sent me this beautiful wedding card all the way from Hawaii.
Mickey and I went to Maui once and spent some wonderful time on the beach...
Wishing all of you a wonderful week...be thankful and reflective as you count your many blessings. Never forget those who went to prepare the way for you.

John F. Kennedy: at American University: June 10, 1963
"What kind of peace do we seek? Not a Pax Americana, enforced on the world by American weapons of war, not merely peace for Americans, but peace for all men and women; not merely peace in our time, but peace for all time. I speak of peace as the necessary rational end of rational men. I realize that the pursuit of peace is not as dramatic as the pursuit of war, and the words of the pursuers frequently fall on deaf ears, but we have no more urgent task. Too many of us think peace is impossible, but that is a dangerous defeatist attitude. It leads to the conclusion that war is inevitable, that mankind is DOOMED! We cannot accept that view. Our problems are manmade therefore they can be solved by man. Man has often solved the seemingly unsolvable and we believe they can do it again. I am not referring to the absolute, infinite concept of universal peace and goodwill of which some fantasies and fanatics dream. Let us focus instead on a more practical, more attainable peace, based not on a sudden revolution of human nature, but on a gradual evolution of human institutions. Genuine peace must be the product of many nations. It must be dynamic, not static, changing to meet the challenge of each new generation. For peace is a process, a way of solving problems. World peace, like community peace, does not require that each man love his neighbor, it requires only that they live together in mutual tolerance, submitting their disputes to a just and peaceful settlement. Peace need not be impossible and war need not be inevitable. By defining our goal more clearly, by making it seem more manageable and less remote, we can help all people to see it, to draw hope from it, and to move irresistably towards it. Let us not be blind to our differences, but let us draw attention to our common interests, and the means by which those differences can be resolved. For our most basic common link is that we all inhabit this small planet, we all breathe the same air, we all cherish our children's future, and we are all mortal. Nuclear powers must avoid those confrontations which bring an adversary to a choice of a humiliating retreat or a nuclear war. To adopt that kind of course in the nuclear age would be evidence only of the bankruptcy of our policy or a collective death wish for the world. We must seek to strengthen the United Nations, to make it a more effective instrument for peace, capable of resolving disputes on the basis of law, of ensuring the securtity of the large and the small and of creating conditions under which arms can be abolished. Our primary long range goal is general and complete disarmament, designed to take place in stages, permitting parallel political developments to build the new institutions of peace, which would take the place of arms. Is not peace, in the last analysis, basically a matter of human rights? The right to live out our lives without fear of devastation, the right to breathe air as nature provided it, the right of future generations to a healthy existence? While proceeding to safeguard our national interest, let us also safeguard human interests, and the elimination of war and arms is clearly in the interest of both. Confident and unafraid let us labor on - not towards a strategy of annihilation, but towards a strategy of peace."

Dear Misses Peach,
Today I found in your blog beautiful words and it makes us thinking about...mommy's eyes are full of tears now, this post is really touching.
Adorable tribute!

** I liked a lot those cups, beautiful!

"No bombs or weapons we use to conquer the world. Let us love and compassion. Peace begins with a smile. Smile at least five times a day for people who normally would not give you a smile.
Do it for peace.
Radiate God's peace and let us become a reflection of His light to extinguish in the world and the hearts of men all sorts of hatred and love of power."
(Mother Teresa of Calcutta)

purrs and always love my dear friend
God bless you all

Luna - We love LUNA

Mom remembers it well. It was not fun living in Dallas at that time. Mom had a relative that worked in the school book building at that time. He was not allowed to leave the city for Thanksgiving or Christmas!

Gemini and Ichiro said...

That as a marvelous speech. One wonders what a different world it might have been had he been allowed to fulfill his promise?
