and Seattle citizens like you.No one wants war. 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
