I finished off the look by giving folks the v-shaped peace sign and would greet them with a “Peace Brother.” Of course being 8 years old, I wasn’t quite sure what peace really meant or how important it is for a person’s physical, emotional and spiritual well being. But then again, there are folks from 8 to 80 years of age that are not quite sure what true peace is or how to get it.
