“On behalf of everyone at Peace Boat, as well as all the survivors of Hiroshima and Nagasaki with whom we work to spread the message of universal nuclear disarmament, I would like to thank you for your message of support and solidarity. We know that when individuals and civil society stand together, we can take great strides toward creating a culture of peace around the world.
Please give our warmest regards to all your members, and thank you again so much for taking the time to express your support.”
Peace Education: We encourage all teachers and educators to utilize the September 11th Families for Peaceful Tomorrows Issue of The Change Agent, an Adult Education Newspaper for Social Justice, to promote our mission of nonviolence. The testimonies collected in this issue show our commitment to support other people around the globe who have been affected by terrorism. We continue to speak out against the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, Guantanamo prison, and anti-Muslim activities. We support our Constitution and the Rule of Law and work for peaceful tomorrows for everyone.
