Peace in the Mail
Remember the neglected January letter? It holds a simple design and a simple message: Peace; the thing we surely all long for.
The olive branch as a symbol of peace originates in ancient Greece. There is a myth that Athena and Poseidon competed for possession of Athens. Poseidon thrust his trident into the acropolis causing a well of sea water to gush out but Athena planted an olive tree by the well. The gods judged that Athena gave the better gift and the city became hers. She was the goddess of wisdom, handcraft, and warfare.
The Roman poet, Virgil, used the olive branch as a symbol of peace in the Aeneid.
