“Afghanistan taught us an invaluable lesson . . . It has been and always will be impossible to solve political problems using force. We should have helped the people of Afghanistan in improving their life, but it was a gross mistake to send troops into the country.”
– Retired Red Army General Boris Gromov.
The success at the 2012 RA in DC is reflected by the Peace and Justice Caucus community on the passage of NBI 81 which states we will advertise International DAY OF PEACE on September 21. Peace Iowa is co sponsoring an event at the Coralville Public Library the entire month of September. This event is called Windows to Mirrors, a reflection of the war in Afghanistan, and displays paintings and murals by Afghan children. Everyone is invited to view works of art and learn about the organizations sponsoring the event the entire month of September. Docents will be available and there is always need for more(training 9AM, Saturday, September 1). Iowa NEA Peace and Justice Caucus is one of the sponsors. See www.windowsandmirrors.org for more information.
Thanks to all who attended summer conference! Nancy
