Remembering Peace 

One Day's Pay is a national organization that advocates for individuals, families, schools, places of worship and other kinds of communities to take some time to perform acts of voluntary service, charity, and compassion on this sad anniversary.

May we all also perform acts of peace, as taught by the venerable Thich Nhat Hanh, a Buddhist monk and activitist who was once nominated by Martin Luther King. Jr. for the Nobel Peace Prize for his peace work during the Vietnam war. In this interview, from belief.net.com, he shares what he would say to Osama Bin Laden.

My family and I had the good fortune of meeting Thich Nhat Hanh when he was in Chicago recently speaking on peace at Loyola University, a large Jesuit University. Thay, as he is known to his students, has many followers of religions of all kinds. He is a gentle soul to be sure.*********************Categories: Volunteering, Living, Advocating.
