THANK YOU for the work you are doing.
I believe in education. I believe in living the example. I am so encouraged by your work.
I feel quite certain that we need to get the YOUTH involved. They are the future, and they will be permanently shaped by this moment in history. We must take the opportunity to TEACH them peace, peacemaking, and the difficult and painful art of real dialogue. If we teach this, model this, live this, give them a voice, we have a chance of raising up leaders in the future who will be strongly rooted in the politics of peacemaking.
I work very well with high school kids, (taught in the inner city for three years), but am limited right now because of a family crisis. HOWEVER, nothing lasts forever, and once this passes, I will be available to help in whatever way I can. Please let me know if I can help run small group breakout sessions, or contact teachers at local high schools to get the word out to their kids, or organize things on campuses during lunch (This would be ideal timing for me, since my young child is in preschool during the day). Let me know. I am really into the idea of bringing our youth up in the LIGHT!
Blessings and peace to you
