On the United Nations International Day of Peace on Friday, 21 September 2018 members of WR Nonviolence and friends met to talk about peace. This was a Supplemental Discussion Night, to complement our regular project planning meetings held every Tuesday. The topic was supposed to be Finding Peace In Our Local Community, but discussion strayed to politics, and also on how to engage people in the community to participate in the projects put on by WR Nonviolence.
Participating were Peter, Michael, Allan, Barb and William, who were joined by David, Laurel and Bob. Unfortunately, Barb and William had to leave before Laurel had a chance to take pictures.
