Revolutionary Evolution toward a Culture of Peace:Inside-Out, Bottom-Up, Topsy-Turvy

Earth quakes, tornadoes, tsunamis, floods, hurricanes, uprisings of the oppressed, nuclear meltdowns, global economic and financial collapse. Of historic proportions, all around the world, and all virtually in the blink of an eye.

neighborhood peace

Today, the members of our non profit group, the Order of Mercy, held a neighborhood street clean up as we have done several times in the past two years. People who live in the area joined in when they saw us, picking up trash and sweeping away broken glass. We also met some members of a spiritual group who had just moved in and were giving a concert this evening.
