Laurel Krause is the co-founder and director of the Kent State Truth Tribunal. Her sister Allison Krause was killed at Kent State University on May 4th, 1970.
4/5/12 ~ Yesterday we began 30 Days for Kent State Peace, our VIRTUAL PETITION of the Obama Administration. OUR PLEA is for an Immediate Investigate into the New Evidence in the May 4th Kent State Massacre.
In 29 days it will be the 42nd anniversary of the slaughter of Allison Krause, my sister who was one of four student protesters shot dead by the U.S. government on May 4, 1970.
To learn a little more about Kent State, please WATCH this moving rendition of OHIO, the Kent State Massacre anthem, from Jonathan Demme's new film 'Neil Young Journeys,' coming soon to a theatre near you.
Over the next few weeks, we are wholly focused on Achieving Peace at Kent State, so follow us as we blog on Peace & Peace at Kent State.
Today we’re looking at the Meaning of PEACE.
Wikipedia defines "PEACE is a state of harmony characterized by the lack of violent conflict. Commonly understood as the absence of hostility, peace also suggests the existence of healthy or newly healed interpersonal or international relationships, prosperity in matters of social or economic welfare, the establishment of equality, and a working political order that serves the true interests of all. In international relations, peacetime is not only the absence of war or conflict, but also the presence of cultural and economic understanding."
Creating Peace demands a focus on HARMONY, HEALING & EQUALITY. Add LOVE to the mix & it transforms into a workable, peaceful framework for harmonious, beneficial living aka peace. Listen to John Lennon singing, ‘Make Love, Not War’
Seems that even Pondering Peace requires a significant attitude adjustment. The focus becomes ‘for the greater good of all’ & for harmony, actions each of us may easily & freely practice, each day.
Let’s ADD PEACE to our daily perspective today, shifting our focus towards Peaceful Action & away from the drone of mainstream media selling wars, dis-ease, imprisonments, lies, tortures, months-off elections, catastrophes & assassinations.
Today CONSIDER joining us in PONDERING PEACE.
What does PEACE mean to you in this moment right now? As thoughts drift towards what peace isn’t, gently nudge yourself back into the moment, consider PEACE & maybe even create PEACE in your life today.
PEACE at Kent State means the Obama Administration takes the small yet SIGNIFICANT, PEACEFUL STEP in Deciding to Examine the Kent State Tape.
Peaceful Americans deserve to know the TRUTH about the May 4th Kent State Massacre. http://bit.ly/HcliUa
