BENEFITING: FYERA FOUNDATION
EVENT DATE: Sep 08, 2013
When we are inundated by images of war, Creativity for Peace is quietly bringing teenage girls from Israel and Palestine together on the safe and neutral territory of Rhodes, Greece and Santa Fe, New Mexico, to demonstrate to us all that “An enemy is a friend who’s story you have yet to hear.” As these courageous girls help us celebrate our freedom and peace in the US, they also role model for us the hope and effectiveness possible when we celebrate rather than war with our diversity. Practiced in standing in alignment with their common ground as human beings before their religious and ethnic identity, these girls are coming together in September to vision their next five years of peace building activities and have invited me to join them as a facilitator. Your donations will help this event- and a culture of peace in our world- HAPPEN! Help us Vision For Peace!
CFP is hope for the future of the whole human family- right in our own backyard! The girls travel across the US to speak about their dialogues with one another, inspiring possibility for peace in our own hearts as well as in the world. As we witness their transformation, from tears of terror at their first meeting to tears of sadness to part ways once they become best friends, they call us to work together in a world that works for all.
