      Well written, Lisa. I usually respond to questions or letters to individual members via their e-mail address. I did however enjoy reading the recent postings that went to the entire group, and reflecting on what they had to say. Judy

      Firstly, Thank You Ines & Joyce for initiating this discussion,
      and Ines, I think you've explained your proposal very
      evocatively. This subject is very easy to react to with dynamic
      responses, not to mention it affects us all so "close to home" in
      these times.

      I think by virtue of that alone it is important as a group to
      consider why we should address it in a meeting. Coming together
      for a common purpose, for a subject I do cringe from, offers the
      opportunity for a healing activity, regardless of how each
      participant comes to it, whether under auspices of depicting
      Peace or reacting to the War itself. As I stated in my previous
      post, there are so many levels & layers to touch on.

      For me, taking part in this discussion has been personally
      significant. I am heart-broken at what I believe to be inherently
      wrong, and it is extremely painful to think about, but it has
      brought me to focus on what I want to experience within myself,
      which is harmony & balance, to bring beauty to a world that so
      much needs it...

      Even if as individuals we (the BAC), choose to consider this
      privately & decide on something else as a group for February,
      these postings have been pertinent.

      In Gratitude & Love,
