Hi all...I am sending out my own little "ripple" (have a smile Vivian). I am
playing with my "new toy" You can click to "open in a
new window" too --I like that feature. Some of these are very good for the
little ones---some are more for upper level/high school. Check before you
use with kiddies.

The Art of Peace (I liked many of the quotes form this)
Morihei Ueshiba (1883-1969) was history's greatest martial artist. He was
the founder of Aikido, which can be translated as "The Art of Peace."
Morihei Ueshiba is referred to by the practitioners of Aikido as O-Sensei,
"The Great Teacher". The following quotations have been compiled from
O-Sensei's collected talks, poems, and calligraphy, and from oral tradition.
One quote:
The Art of Peace begins with you. Work on yourself and your appointed task
in the Art of Peace. Everyone has a spirit that can be refined, a body that
can be trained in some manner, a suitable path to follow. You are here for
no other purpose than to realize your inner divinity and manifest your
innate enlightenment. Foster peace in your own life and then apply the Art
to all that you encounter.

A choice of alternative: Rage and Resolution Kol Ha-Isha Women's Center-
"A Choice of Alternatives" implies the possibility of leaving one situation
and choosing another, extricating oneself from distress and heading
courageously toward a better future. Resigning oneself to violence is the
path to decline and self-destruction. Not resigning oneself, though
acknowledging the evil that exists. is the first step toward the light at
the end of the tunnel."

Roy Lichtenstein "Peace through Chemistry" (this would be an interesting
piece to research.).

If anyone missed Vivian's post --I have the entire file saved on my computer
