From: Jim Lovestar <jimbo [at] consciousbody.info> Hi Neighbors for Peace, This from the net... t r u t h o u t | One Mother's Stand By Scott Galindez Monday 29 August 2005 8:48 PM A beautiful moment just happened at Camp Casey I. There was a candle light vigil honoring troops who have died in Iraq. The counter protesters came across the street and joined the vigilers at Camp Casey, They shared the flag and prayed together for the families on both sides who have lost loved ones in the war. They are now singing and holding candles together. This is a testament to the power of this movement ... t r u t h o u t | One Mother's Stand And couple announcements: Dear Friends, Do you feel the country tipping away from the war in Iraq? We have many to thank for that - especially Cindy Sheehan. But who will help us tip our country towards peace? Jonathan Schell! We face a choice in America - between a republic based on democracy and cooperation and an empire based on exclusive control of the world's wealth enforced at nuclear gunpoint. WE CITIZENS will make this choice, and no one else. Jonathan Schell has spent forty years writing about the rise of nonviolent, democratic power and the fall of every empire of the 20th Century before the will of the people. We are each a part of this history. FNVW exists to make you the most powerful agents of peace you can be. Let's together better learn and play our roles! Help Us Fill the Fitz with Peace!

Thanks, Phil Steger Friends for a Non-Violent World (651) 917-0383 You may have already heard of Eyes Wide Open, the widely acclaimed American Friends Service Committee (AFSC) exhibition about the human cost of war. This powerful outdoor exhibit is coming to the Minneapolis/St. Paul area, Sept. 30-Oct. 1, and I am among the many volunteers working to spread news of the event as far into our Upper Midwest region as possible. The exhibit is being generously hosted by the College of St. Catherine and will be displayed outdoors at its St. Paul campus. In addition to the boots, we are planning various related activities speakers, ecumenical services, reading of the names, etc. For some of you, this may not be in your own backyard, but we wanted all peace and justice groups in Minnesota and neighboring states to be aware of the exhibit. It has already traveled to more than 60 U.S. cities since January 2004 and each time, the local reception grows along with the number of boots. You may just want to make others aware of the event, or you may have a group interested in joining us in St. Paul at the end of September. We are still in need of both volunteers and donations. We would love to see you. A special page at <http://www.afsc.org/eyes/>www.afsc.org/eyes/ outlines more details about Eyes Wide Open at the College of St. Catherine, including an online volunteer tool and sponsorship forms to download. For those of you in the education arena, there is a related curriculum to reference. Flyers and information sheets can also be downloaded from the web site to help you promote Eyes Wide Open in your community. We sincerely appreciate all you can do to help us spread this AFSC message about the human cost of war. And thank you for all you do for peace.

It does not exist in nature . . . avoiding danger is no safer in the long run than outright exposure. The fearful are caught as often as the bold."
