Today for our creative writing prompts, we will reflect on PEACE.

Please read the poem "Let it Begin with Me" by Wisconsin poet Mary Jo Balistreri.  (This poem is featured on Your Daily Poem (dot com), which is a wonderful resource of all kinds of great poetry.  Teachers, please check it out!)

Essay Prompt: What are examples of letting peace begin with ourselves? Please elaborate on personal examples from your own life or examples you've observed through others.

Poetry: Begin a poem with this prompt:

If peace. . .

Story Prompt: Create a story that ends with a very small in appearance, but big in meaning, gesture of peace.

Happy Writing!
