Practicing Peace Signing on to the blogosphere for the first time ever:   Here’s a little summary of what we’re about and what we hope to accomplish with our blog.  We wanted the domain name “waging peace” but it was already taken.  A good sign! 

PRACTICING PEACE 

 OF COURSE PEACE IS POSSIBLE!

It takes courage, creativity, perseverance, and a lot of hard work. Join us for a conversation on “waging peace”, the how, the why, and the what. Women Against War is a Capital District organization dedicated to ending the war in Iraq; preventing new wars, especially with Iran; educating people about the cost of war, particularly to women and children; and inspiring people to believe in and demand that our foreign policy be based on alternatives to violence. Read on and discover that waging peace can occur in a simple conversation, a billboard on Central Avenue, or a trip to another country.

    This makes me think of the lovely saying, “Practice random acts of kindness”. Sometimes the troubles of the world seem overwhelming but doing little things to help others or to stop violence or injustice starts the ripple. If that gesture or ripple encourages and strengthens others, then we have a wave.

    Practicing peace, even if in little ways, does make a difference. Margaret Mead said it so well, “Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful committed citizens can change the world. Indeed it’s the only thing that ever has.”
