ANDREA SEABROOK, host:

And that sense of camaraderie brings us to our parting words this evening. They come from Franklin D. Roosevelt's fourth inaugural address - January 20, 1945. He said: we have learned the simple truth, as Emerson said, that the only way to have a friend is to be one. We can gain no lasting peace if we approach it with suspicion or mistrust or with fear.

(Soundbite of music)

SEABROOK: And that's ALL THINGS CONSIDERED for today. I'm Andrea Seabrook. May you find peace.
