Andrena ~ Getting a Grip on Grace ~ A pastor in Philadephia. She writes "Peace is allowing others to be who they are, as God created them... What a beautiful concept." Read this lovely article written for this day when she asked her young son the question "What does peace mean to you?" She writes - among other things -"a world with war and without having that split second of fear whenever we hear a plane flying too low, my son still looks at me out the corner of his eye to see if I react to planes in the sky. We are from New York."
In June, 2007 Andrena starts off with a Peace Blast and ends with A MidSummers' Day Peace in which she led her congregation in a demonstration for inner city peace. See the moving video on her site.

Anita Havel ~ Snapshots of Life ~ Alabama ~ She writes "Dona Nobis Pacem - Give Us Peace. It's an interesting concept, isn't it? That people have the power to promote peace. That individuals, coming together as a unified voice, can bring about peace on earth. Is it possible? I like to think so." and includes this famous quote "I like to believe that people in the long run are going to do more to promote peace than our governments. Indeed, I think that people want peace so much that one of these days governments had better get out of the way and let them have it.
