Peace Calendar for July 5, 2008

Editor's recommendation for this week:
   If I had the next 3 weeks available, I would definitely head over to
Luck, Wisconsin, to participate in the Seeds of Peace camp.  It looks like a
deep and rigorous training for the most practical sorts of peace people.
You could email anathoth [at] or or 715-472-8721 or 715-472-4184.  I
believe the Red Cross uses the saying, "It's a dog-eat-dog world.  Somebody
better learn first aid."
