      Wonderful story about a beautiful rose that is now approaching the age of 70. The Peace Rose was my late Grandmother Flora's favorite of all her roses, and this article explains why it is a very special rose indeed!

    “At once both tough and tender, this masterpiece is the finest map I know to the transformation of self and civilization. If you read only one book this year, this is it!”— Jean Houston, founder of the field of Social Artistry “This brilliant manifesto weaves science, spirituality, and social healing into a practical peace roadmap for us all.”— Deepak Chopra, author of Peace Is the Way

    Brutal isn't it? Hard to look at? This is what war looks like. Maybe if we saw this everyday we would stop these usless wars... I don't know of one war since WWII when one side admitted defeat and a peace treaty was signed. Now wars just go on and on and on.

I don’t know how to explain how we were able to manage without these fundamental things that (so they tell us) are so necessary for civilized society” - John (Fire) Lame Deer, Sioux Lakota, 1903-1976
