I spoke recently at the Paso Robles, CA, Peace Circle. It was formed about a year ago by a WW II U.S. bomber pilot — now turning 99 — and by a survivor of the Allied bombing of Dresden at the end of WW II — then age five. Dick and Hart have become fast friends and meet every week. The larger circle meets once a month to pursue inner peace and then to promote peace resolutely in the wider community. To see their pics and read my notes of the meeting, visit my travel journal Post #297.
