When it comes to peace, how would you describe yourself?
I feel the pain in the world
What do you believe are the 'burning issues' today?
War, Hunger, Poverty, Violence, Inflation, Human Rights, Other
So what is it?
lack of good leadership
What must we overcome to achieve peace?
Fear surpasses greed and hate and other reasons that are obstacles between peace and no peace.
Trust, security [in how you feel about your hom, your town your city...], not knowing what will happen in just a few hours, not knowing where you'll sleep..this is all fear. Worry and fear and lack of trust..will break down a society. I remember substitute teaching in a thrid grade class, as a helper; I was aksed to sit down with one child at a time and ask her/him which words on my list described them.. and the word "Worry" was one of the words that each child chose. This wouldn't have happend in my school when i was growing up in the 1960s
Can we change the world?
More about me
www.allegrettocapecod.org bringing musical instrument demonstrations to the Cape Cod Elementary Schools, support music in the schools - music in the lives of children; as an educational aid as well as a positive influence in this difficult world. Music promotes self discipline, confidence, and helps the child focus, thus creating a healthy environment for learning. Learning an instrument in the early years is vital; a child's brain is much more receptive to the multiple facets of absorbing a muscal insrtument/more open to instruction.

I'm one of many volunteer DJ's on WOMR 92.1FM support tha cause - support community radio !
www.womr.org outermost community radio in Provincetown, MA USA
my program is mondays from 5-8pm EST "The Fiddle & The Harp" Celtic/World Music - I also host local and visiting musicians on my program.

Music must be a major presence in the schools forever!

If All The People In The World Played Music Together There wouldn't Be Any War

My passion in this world is to bring my musical family into the schools to have a chat with each child in our audience about what instrument they will choose for themselves, to learn. If nothing, they will find a friend for life.. We raise our own money so that the schools don't have to worry about paying us... sometimes a donation is all we ask..



What Love Means| from the mouths of Children

What Love means to a 4-8 year old . .

Slow down for three minutes to read this. It is so worth it. Touching words from the mouths of babes.

A group of professional people posed this question to a group of 4 to 8 year-olds, 'What does love mean?'

The answers they got were broader and deeper than anyone could have imagined.See what you think.

'When my grandmother got arthritis, she couldn't bend over and paint her toenails anymore.

So my grandfather does it… Continue

Dear Dinah,
Some photos are from my trip to India in August 2006, and most of the mountain pics are from our trip to Snowdonia, North Wales, UK, last September. We love it there. I'm so pleased you enjoyed the photos.
