Verona Pentony is a poet with a purpose. Her mission is one of peace. Motivated, from an early age, by an ambition to meet people from all walks of life, her mission has taken her to many places and has achieved recognition and reciprocation in some far-flung quarters of the world.
A Song for Forgiveness (from her debut collection, Reflections from the Heart, part of the Reflections series) was recorded in Nashville in July 2021, Tennessee by singer, Katy Lynn Johnson:
Take the train to Forgiveness County;
Everyone has a heartache to mend.
Learning the lessons all of us must one day see.
Making the enemy into your friend.
“All Missions begin as thoughts, embryos of an idea that grow into a visualised result,” says Verona. For her, it began on 18 December 2003, when she received the guiding sign to promote World Peace and Forgiveness. Thus began her distribution of The White Rose of Peace Card during the Iraq War.
