A little shrew had wonderful news! He wanted to tell the whole world, but it was too isy. 'I kw the secret of Peace on Earth!' he said. Nobody heard him. Everyone was much too busy doing their own thing, creating their own ises, and t listening to anything. He wanted to say that if everyone in the whole world just sat still for a moment and listened, there would be Peace on Earth.
