Women and Peace

This is my first attempt at sharing a video with you. Here is a 26-minute presentation that our Joan Chittister gave as the closing keynote of the conference "International Gender Justice Dialogue" held last week in Puerto Vallarta, Mexico. The executive director of the Gender Justice group, headquartered in The Hague, Netherlands, was with us for Holy Week. It was co-sponsored by the Nobel Women's Initiative, a group of seven women Nobel Peace Prize winners, working for peace in the world.

This is a shorter version of one of Sister Joan's most recent and most powerful lectures,"Women, Power and Peace." Find 26 minutes---I think you'll like it.

Though the daffodils in our gardens are more noticeable and expected, I think the unplanned, wild ones we just "come upon" in our woods are more appreciated. They are such a wonderful surprise.
