Item Description

Cultural Writing. Poetry. Art. Nominated for this year's Nobel Peace Prize, the Peaceful Tomorrows (a non-profit group of families members of September 11 victims dedicated to finding alternatives to war) present a groundbreaking collection of essays, poems, songs and art about pacifism as a response to tragedy. Beginning with an introduction to the mission of the Peaceful Tomorrows by editor David Potorti, this book provides the reader with essays on various topics relating to politics and government, including forgiveness and keeping the faith (Andrew Rice/ Myrna Bethke); the power of music (Kristina Olsen/ Derrill Bodley); creating community (Barry Amundson); a military perspective (Ryan Amundson); and a commentary on the media's response to both the 9/11 disaster and the work of the Peaceful Tomorrows (Potorti). This volume also includes guest essays from high-profile supporters of the Peaceful Tomorrows.
