“He who learns must suffer. And even in our sleep pain that cannot forget falls drop by drop upon the heart, and in our own despair, against our will, comes wisdom to us by the awful grace of God.”—Aeschylus

Growing your local peace economy in 2017: “The temptation is to GO HUGE because there is so much to do. My suggestion is to start within reach of your arm and work your way up. Volunteer at a food bank because people are going to need it. Volunteer to be an escort at a Planned Parenthood because women's rights are going to be under unprecedented assault. Let it be known that your home is a sanctuary for any undocumented immigrants if the round-ups start. The connections you'll make doing those things will take you into harder and more important work, but those things of themselves are hugely important... and when you realize that you are actually capable of helping, your capacity to help will grow exponentially.” —William Rivers Pitt of Truthout
