Stand up! May 11, 2008

Some of you tell me that Village of Ordinary is an important part of your coping structure and that it has a calming influence in your hectic lives.

Some of you have told me you would like to live in a place like Ordinary. Some call it utopia. I'm not talking utopia, here. I'm talking each of us living in peace with each other and caring for the Earth as we were intended to care for it. This is absolutely possible.

What makes it possible is that there are millions of people the world over holding similar visions--and acting on them. Look at just one of them.



Women began standing for peace after reading Sharon Mehdi's book The Great Silent Grandmother's Gathering. Read the book. Give it to a mother you know before Mother's Day, and maybe she will be inspired to join you and stand for peace for five minutes. To learn where people are standing in your neighborhood, go to Standing Women.org.

Be Ordinary. Stand up.
