I commend your work Neah, and wished to be at Nicholas Mele meet-up. I am back on the East Coast on my way back to Berlin, Germany. My five month trip to awakening communities to organize common sense and establish WeDoPeace & Justice Centers as yours, seem to get a favorable responds. I hope you had a chance to look at my Peace Seminar and find it helpful. We have now 235 communities participating and may more looking for likeminded citizens in their community. I would appreciate if you could pass on my seminar to Nick Mele and tell him to give me an evaluation and get in touch with me. I have now a dozen truly motivated communicators we all can benefit from making P&J Centers an effective outlet country wide. Keep up the good work and May Peace Prevail on Earth
