Peace and Happiness

In the closing moments of the last episode of ‘V’ – the original series, namely ‘The Return’, Faye Grant’s character, Dr. Julie Parrish says, as Elizabeth, the star child, boards the leader’s shuttle, ‘Who knows? Maybe she’ll find peace – maybe we all will.’

‘Peace and happiness’ – two things which, for the most part, continue to elude the human race.

The day humanity commemorates a thousand years of peace on Earth will be a great day for the human race!

An interesting aside: A paraphrase of Elizabeth’s lines earlier in the episode: ‘Earth love is good and warm but is dependent on bodies - let me tell you about true love which pervades the cosmos and is not dependent on bodies.’
