Not too long ago, I took a picture of a white hibiscus flower. It reminded me so much of the concept of purity, and peace. Like the white doves often sent away to symbolize peace, I wanted to send you this white hibiscus as a reminder to have a peaceful day. This made me wonder about the many time the word ‘peace’ is used in languages around the world, like the Arabic greeting As-salamu alaykum which means peace be upon you. Or the name of the Tanzanian city Dar es Salaam which means ‘the abode of peace’ or ‘the house of peace’. To all of you out there, I send you my dove of peace, in the form of a white hibiscus flower. May your day be peaceful!
