BIRTHDAY GREETINGS

FROM NOAM CHOMSKY

Very pleased to learn about what you are doing, the kind of dedicated work
that can really make a difference in the longer term.  And pleased at well
that I’ve indirectly been able to be of some help.  Congratulations on the
anniversary, and I hope that May 3 is a memorable day.

FROM GORD BARNES OF AMNESTY INTERNATIONAL REGINA

I would like to extend my personal best wishes to you and everyone of the rest of the wonderful people who are part of the Making Peace Vigil. This is truly a time to celebrate. Best wishes to everyone.

WHEN THE POWER OF LOVE OVERCOMES THE LOVE OF POWER

THE WORLD WILL KNOW PEACE

What difference does it make to the dead, the orphans, and the homeless whether the mad destruction is wrought under the name of totalitarianism or under the holy name of liberty or democracy?

Mahatma Gandhi

It is my conviction that killing under the cloak of war

is nothing but an act of murder.

Albert Einstein

We used to wonder where war lived, what it was

 that made it so vile. And now we realize that we

know where it lives, that it is inside ourselves.

Albert Camus

The old law of an eye for an eye

leaves everybody blind.

Martin Luther King

All we are saying is give peace a chance.

John Lennon

You can bomb the world to pieces

but you can’t bomb the world to peace.

Michael Franti

He who sleeps on a full stomach whilst his

neighbour goes hungry is not one of us.

The Prophet Muhammad

Feed the hungry.

Give drink to the thirsty.

 Clothe the naked.

House the homeless.

Thou shalt not be a victim.

Thou shalt not be a perpetrator.

Above all, thou shalt not be a bystander.

Holocaust Museum, Washington, DC

Security for any one of us

lies in greater abundance for all of us.

Another world is not only possible, she is on her way.

On a quiet day I can hear her breathing.
