Actually, reading this thread for me has shown me that one idea that I have
been using is a lot more common that I had thought. The idea of naming the

from the send was something that I wasn't really sure if it was a "Pd Idiom"
or not, and I really had no idea how to ask a question about it...

Peace may sound simple—one beautiful word— but it requires everything we
have, every quality, every strength, every dream, every high ideal.
