Peacemakers

Peace demands the most heroic labor and the most difficult sacrifice. It demands greater heroism than war. It demands greater fidelity to the truth and a much more perfect purity of conscience. ~Thomas Merton

Dear friends,
Look around you at the heroes in your life. 33 years of Missoula Peacemakers have inspired us with their courage and commitment and strengthened our peace community. Each fall, we ask you to look around you and nominate someone (or some group) to be considered for this prestigious award given each spring by the JRPC and the Missoula Peace Quilters. Who inspires you? Who has a story that needs to be told, and a message that will call others to act? We are looking for that special person or group who consistently makes a professional and/or personal commitment to “walk the walk” of nonviolence, social justice and sustainability and serves as a role model for this community. We particularly want to find and honor the “unsung” among us. A selection committee made up of Missoula Peace Quilters and JRPC Coordinating Council members will have the difficult task of choosing from among the nominations received – a selection that is never easy. This year, the deadline for nominations is October 15, so don’t delay. Make a contribution to peacemaking by honoring someone who inspires you. The nomination form is available on our website or contact us for a paper copy. We’ll be waiting to be inspired yet again…Betsy
