“If a few children can get headlines all over the world just by not going to school, then imagine what we could all do together if we really wanted to.” ~Greta Thunberg
One of the most important parts of peace is dialogue — the connection we make with those around us, the ideas we share and the education, support and encouragement we give each other. This week is an important one in communities across the world. People the world over, led by our youth are calling for serious commitment and action to reverse and heal the damage our planet is suffering. We at JRPC will be closing on Friday, September 20 and 27 so that we and our employees can support and attend those actions in Missoula. We hope to see you all there.
We are also celebrating the gift that refugees have been to our community as we participate in Welcoming Week with our partners Soft Landing Missoula. I ask you to join us tonight at Imagine Nation Brewing Co. where Robert, Fernanda and I will lead a discussion on the core of peace. We hope to hear your ideas and comments as well. The serious challenges we face in the world require all of us to find our voices and add them to the symphony that is our future. I’ll see you tonight…Betsy
