Haiku Sticky #194
I attended a Peace Conference on Saturday, a combined project of NH Peace Action and Rivier University. I enjoyed a little sanity in the discourse about violence after months of viewing the comments of internet trolls. I was beginning to lose hope about the future of our country.
The only thing that bothered me about the conference was the poor attendance by young people. I think that the few who did attend, were only there because it was part of a class requirement. Sad, but, the haiku above was a result.
I want to leave you with this quote from the keynote speaker, John Dear: "We claim the imagination for peace."
