It is a tough time to be a peace builder – even for those of us who have been at it for a long while. Every time violence rears its ugly head, we express anger and frustration at the proliferation of violence and search for a way to translate it into action that will help create a more peaceful world.  Yes we are promoting peace and justice. But our world is dominated by messages of violence blaring out repeatedly through the barrel of a gun in shopping malls, schools, everywhere- as well as in the war and turmoil around the globe. Even with decades of peace activism pushing forward, the United States remains a violent culture.

What kind of peace do we seek?

A peace imposed on the world by American weapons of war?

A peace devoid of justice and freedom?

Let us create a world that supports everyone.

We have no more urgent task!
