Project Peace Goes Full force during International Peace Week

This International Peace Week has been amazing here with Project Peace.  First I was able to happily share the benefits of Yoga for relieving stress with 33 Cafeteria Workers from Seneca County. Then it was onto my classes at Tiffin Middle School to begin to teach the Principles of Nonviolence.  Their Peace club will be selling tickets on the above new girls’ bicycle.  The tickets are 3/1.00 so if you’d like to help support the Peace club by buying tickets, let me know with a reply.

On Monday it was also on to Bucyrus library for an evening presentation of Palestine and Nonviolence.  Thursday I met the young people and adults in Canton for a session on the Reality of Palestine at St. Michael’s Catholic Church which is very progressive in its understanding of Catholic Social Action.  How comforting they were to me personally.

On Friday–today–there is a study of our Book Club on the Opioid Crisis–The Committee for a Nonviolent Tiffin.  Then there will be a corner action from 4:00-4:45 after which the folks will walk to Heidelberg for an action around their Peace Pole at which the students will stress the need for International rights for all people.

On Saturday I will go to the flea market in Tiffin to help register people to vote.

I’d say this was a real peace week.

much peace to each of you.
