The Tacoma News Tribune reported the death of Clair Cline, 92, on Sunday, September 19, 2010. Why remember and honor Cline? Cline made a violin while a prisoner of war. The first concert was on Christmas Eve, 1944. A song he chose to play crossed all wartime front lines, “Silent Night.” Or, “Stille Nacht,” if you prefer. Cline has found peace, even if for a brief moment, during a concert while a prisoner of war. He now has his peace from struggle on this earth. May we find a way to peace today, and may it last longer than an evening, so that we can rise above the war of life to enter the Peaceable Kingdom.
