Photo by Edward S. Curtis - 1903

Though I saw many, many beautiful places on my recent trip to the Southwest, I was most moved by the words on this post card I found in a trading post in Monument Valley, Utah. The photo of Chief Joseph, the leader of the Nez Perce tribe was taken upon his surrender in 1877, when he spoke these now-famous words:
"From where the sun now stands,
I will fight no more forever."
As we approach this holiday time of peace, I believe these are words to remember.
