No sane person wants to ?kill for peace.? Yet we are in a war on terror and may wage a war in Iraq in the name of peace, security and freedom. Some believe these are just and necessary wars for global security. Some think they are arrogant and reckless US ploys for global dominance. Many of us muddle around in the middle. Whatever the reasons for war, we need to mobilize our imagination, intelligence and spirits towards peace. What could make peace break out now? Where is it already happening? How can we make it grow and last? What are your best ideas for peace in these perilous times?Come to the Community Conversation Caf? on Waging Peace in Perilous Times.
