      Dennis, Thank you. They sound like a dedicated group of people. I
      suppose there are many ways they can go forward. If there is some
      outside group that might pay me significantly ($25,000 for previous work
      in Kenya plus $10,000 per month) then I could work as I did in the
      Pyramid of Peace. Otherwise, I don't know what I could contribute, but
      certainly others might.

      Hi I spoke with Dennis and he met some Somalians who learned about the
      Pyramid of Peace http://www.pyramido fpeace.net and would like to do
      something similar there.

      I need to focus on my financial situation. One thing that I can do and
      should do is to write to Kofi Annan on behalf of myself and perhaps he
      could fund my work in Somalia.

      My phone number in Austria is:

      Dennis will write to Holistic Helping but I imagine that I would work on
      this at Fighting Peacefully.

      of the civil war in Somalia earlier in 1991 following the collapse of

      while others were displaced within the country and many more crossed the
      borders in search of peace and better life. This has put the lives of
