It is hard to imagine even one day in a single year when we could lay down our country’s weapons. I am hoping that the upside of the rancorous budget battles will be an end to the United States’ current engagement in war (because in the worst of things, there is always cause for hope). Today is International Peace Day. What are your plans? Might you make it a theme for your practice or, if you teach, your classes? If you have the money, make a donation to an organization that works for peace? Call or write your elected officials or write a letter to the editor of your local newspaper on an issue important to you that impacts world peace (this would include budget issues, education, environment, infrastructure, disaster relief, and family planning, and not just involvement in war itself)?
