Work 4 Peace,Hold All Life Sacred,Eliminate Violence! I am on my mobile version of the door-to-door, going town-to-town holding readings/gatherings/discussions of my book "But What Can I Do?" This is my often neglected blog mostly about my travels since 9/11 as I engage in dialogue and actions. It is steaming with my opinions, insights, analyses toward that end of holding all life sacred, dismantling the empire and eliminating violence while creating the society we want ALL to thrive in

United for Peace and Justice

I went to the United for Peace and Justice office for the first time today - it was fabulous! It's on the 9th floor about four blocks from Madison Square Garden and what excitement and bustle - so many folks coming and going, all working towards making this week an historic event of democracy in action!
There's a bank of phones, a huge room with clusters of folks congregating and meeting, planning actions and logistics, and a group of small offices off to the back. Tons of flyers and posters and stickers and peace flags and other materials - not to mention waves of volunteers!
I rolled up my sleeves and jumped right in!
