      > As the days whisk by and Spring is starting to emerge in all of it's
      > glory here in Florida, I am reminded of how grateful I am for the knowing of
      > other humans that share my passion for the blossoming of peace and
      > nonviolence on our beautiful blue-green planet Earth! I believe we are
      > oftentimes to each other...the "peace" in the middle of a storm.
      >
      > I have noticed in my own life how important it is to be in
      > relationship with others that nurture and support the ideals that I hold so
      > dear to my heart. If it weren't for that, I am certain that my level of
      > dedication, inspiration and faith would be challenged. However, I continue
      > to seek out ways in which to get what I need in order to be present and in
      > service to others.
      >
      > I am so excited by the Department of Peace Campaign and the community
      > it has formed around it in this country and even internationally! The

      > integral part of the education, training and inspiration for all those that

      > network, website and staff, free conference calls, conferences and materials

      > What is the Department of Peace Campaign? - A Bill (HR 3760) and (S.
      > 1756) to establish a U.S. cabinet-level Department of Peace (DOP) is
      > currently in Congress. These Bills establish non-violence as an organizing
      > principle of American society, providing the President with an array of
      > peace-building policy options for domestic and international use.
      > Domestically, the Department would be responsible for addressing gang and
      > drug violence, child abuse, prison reform, domestic abuse and other issues
      > of conflict. Internationally, the Department would gather research, analyze
      > foreign policy and focus on non-military peaceful conflict resolution. The
      > Bill would establish a Peace Academy modeled after the military academies
      > that would train in conflict resolution and peace-building strategies.
