Waging Peace: The Power of One

This came through my inbox this morning and it sounds very interesting. I think I'll go. Feel free to crosspost!

Saturday, November 6, 2004 from 1:00 to 5:00 p.m.
Room 305
Weldon Law School, Dalhousie University
6061 University Ave.
Free. All welcome!

Rae Sikora will be speaking on who and what do you care about? Live a life that reflects this caring and affects the entire world. Go beyond caring about those who are part of your home, your community, your species. Think you are too busy to wage Peace? Think takes no extra time to wage Peace. The Power of One works for busy people, too!
