13) Hello my dear peacekeepers,since the beginning of NP I feel to be a part of it and in Germany I do presentations to tell (not only) Germans what peacekeepers like you are doing.Last year I did one of these presentations with Anne who was peacekeeper until last year and I really received some very deep impression of what you and all the others are doing to protect people and foster peace.In order to spread the word we have begun a campaign on the idea of civilian peacekeeping so that people but also politicians are informed about the wisdom to have a peace logic instead of a one-sided security logic that those that foster violence typically follow.Tlherefore I thank you so much of what you are doing. \nAnd keep me informed so that I can inform others!

20) Women have been underappreciated in American society for too many years. Their contributions have been monumental. I have stood shoulder to shoulder with women supporting their Unions strikes, for peace and for justice. My father who passed away 4 years ago always talked about how unfair lending institutions and even his job with the UAW at a GM Plant was to women. My mother who was working at the time was not allowed to use her income when my dad financed the house they shared for over 50 years and she still lives in today. Women give life and appreciate the life's of others more than men. I sincerely believe when a woman is elected President they will be much more reserved in deciding to send our children off to die and kill in wars. From Eleanor Roosevelt to progressive women Senators today breaking that glass ceiling is an absolute priority.

Isa 3:10-11 [NIV] Tell the righteous it will be well with them, for they will enjoy the fruit of their deeds. Woe to the wicked! Disaster is upon them! They will be paid back for what their hands have done.
Isa 3:14-15 [LB] First to feel his wrath will be the elders and the princes, for they have defrauded the poor. They have filled their barns with grain extorted from the helpless peasants. How dare U grind my people in the dust like that! the Lord of Hosts will demand of them.
Isa 5:7 [NIV] .... And he looked for justice, but saw bloodshed; for righteousness, but heard cries of distress.

480) It is great to hear that people like you are affirming your commitment to the life affirming values and energies that must govern all meaningful human life and any civilisation worth the name.

You will know that your own role and the role of those who have supported you has been a significant part of that development.
481) From the bottom of my heart, I thank you for your courage and witness. As a man, I see how much many men need your witness and your leadership. I've seen how women in my own life have been devalued and harmed by the men they trusted. Stay true to nonviolent love and draw us into your gifts.

Nonviolent Peaceforce (NP) is an international non- governmental organization with an international unarmed peacekeeping team of trained civilians.
The e-learning course on Strengthening Civilian Capacities to Protect Civilians was introduced today at the United Nations High Level Forum on Culture of Peace in New York. The six module course developed jointly by the UN Institute for Training and Research and Nonviolent Peaceforce, will be available online in early 2015.
Unarmed civilian protection (UCP) refers to the use of unarmed civilians to do ‘peacekeeping’. Peacekeeping is about preventing, reducing and stopping violence.
