Teach our children well :: Evanston Peace Fest 1

Thank you, Amy Beth Gardner for this excellent example of
how to explain the power of words and kindness to young ones.

In related news...

Rotary Club of Evanston invites friends and neighbors far and wide to its first ever Evanston Peace Festival going down September 23-25. We'll be talking about peace, kindness and what we can do to instigate peace within ourselves, in our neighborhoods and throughout the world. More about the fest is up on Evanston Rotary's website.

On Friday, September 23, we'll be at Rotary International headquarters talking about peace and peace effort locally and globally. 

On Saturday, September 24, there are tours of RI's headquarters and tailgating before heading to NU for football.

On Sunday, September 25, noon-4 p.m. Peace Fest action will be at the International Friendship Garden on McCormick Blvd, south of Bridge St. My friend, Evanstonian and Sun-Times reporter Maudlyne Ihejirika will do a reading from her book "Escape from Nigeria: A Memoir of Faith, Love and War."  New friends Pastor Elizabeth Jones and WCGO's Daniel French will each do a "peace talk".

More details to come.
