Today would be a good day to visit a place of peace and harmony, I believe. Now that the rancor of the election process is becoming history, it seems a good time to set aside our differences, to accept that we are fortunate in having the freedom to have those differences and to express our feelings, and visit the parish church in Kazimierz Dolny.
The parish church was established in 1325 by King Casimir III the Great – it sits on a hill above the market square and the village, standing in its majestic beauty.
Everytime I look at historical structures like this, built way back in time when manpower was all there was, when machinery to aid in construction did not exist, I marvel that they were ever created. I also wonder what loss of life that creation may have caused. Nonetheless, history stands proud and should be respected.
May I suggest that we now bow our heads and pray for teamwork, for unification, for health for our country and for all countries?
