Peace on earth, good will towards all.

My wish for everyone of every religion this Christmas eve is peace on earth, good will towards all.

Bob Hope 24 Dec 70Even though there are some folks out there who want to kill and die in a “holy” war, I also believe there are none who desire peace more than those fighting in wars far from their homes.

I wrote about it a few years ago, and now on this 45th anniversary of a brief break in my own war experience, I look back again with a sense of history on an interval of laughter and camaraderie.  https://ralietravels.wordpress.com/2011/12/11/historical-christmas-bob-hope-in-viet-nam/

May everyone have a wonderful holiday season.

As always, click on photos (including those in the blog on Bob Hope) to enlarge.

About ralietravels

Ray and Alie (Ralie) are a retired couple who love to travel. Even during our working years, we squeezed a trip in whenever we could, often when we had to stretch the budget to do so. We have been fortunate to vacation in all 50 states, all the provinces of Canada and one territory and a little more than 50 countries. We like to drive, but we particularly love to travel back roads to find unusual sights, people, and experiences.
