Lamb Umbrellas for Peace - An Overview by Matt Lamb

"If not now when?  If not US who? We must be peacemakers" 
~ Matt Lamb (1932-2012)

While Matt Lamb did not attend a Sacred Heart school, his message is so appropriate this week as we honor the memories of those loved ones who died on 9/11 and also considering current happenings in both Egypt and Syria.  I was honored to be a guest at the home of Matt Lamb and his wife Rosemary many years ago when then Chicago Cardinal Bernardin was about to be honored at Mother McAuley Liberal Arts High School.  I went to High School (Mother McAuley) with one of his daughters and was fortunate to serve with another daughter on a local board (MVCC).   His message resonates with me this week and thus I wanted to share with all of you!  Peace be with you!

    Great article and just in time for holiday projects. Paint some, walk in the street, explain the concept and offer to switch with someone - who knows. One by one......
