Peace walk!

I recieved a very cool happening from my on-line UU group list...it's about a Peace walk held to create a Peace department in the United States. I love this and I love the message...maybe you can start one in your town or city!

Peace!

Subject: Walk for Peace!!


Friends,

We hope you'll join us for this event! Please forward this email to others. Attached is an additional flyer for posting and a pledge/donation form so you can collect pledges/donations (suggested but not required for participation) prior to the walk! See you the 16th!

Join us Saturday, September 16, 2006, 10:00 a.m. at the Heritage Plaza in downtown Altoona for a WALK FOR PEACE!


WHO: YOU, your friends, family, pets, and others ready to literally walk the talk of peace.
WHAT: A 3 mile route (on sidewalks) through Altoona.
WHY: To raise awareness and money to support the national grassroots campaign

to create a Department of Peace in the U.S. federal government.


Legislation is currently before the House (H.R. 3760) and Senate (S.1756) to create a Cabinet-level Department of Peace that would research, facilitate and articulate nonviolent solutions to domestic and international conflict. The Department of Peace would be led by a Secretary of Peace and include a Peace Academy on par with current military service academies. You can help bring this vision to reality. Participate today!
