1,000 Pieces of Peace: 10-Year Project Complete

Posted on: January 22nd, 2019 by jeni No Comments

January 2019

Excerpt from a letter sent by Judy Lucas, who has just completed a 10-year peace project:

Dear Family, Friends, and Contributors to 1,000 Pieces of Peace,

Here is our finished ten-year peace project. It comes in two attachments: Pieces of Peace(500 pp.) and Biographies (300 pp.) Instead of publishing it in a book – which I can’t because of copyright issues – I am sharing it with you along with my prayers for a peaceful 2019.

Started in 2009 as a fundraiser for peace organizations, this is offered FREE to people who want to be inspired daily with a peace message and by a peace maker.

If you are compelled to make a donation that will go directly to the work of peace around the world, here is some information. Please simply add “1,000 Pieces of Peace” somewhere.

Please feel free to share these pieces of peace with whomever you choose. They are meant to go into the world with love, hope and faith.

Peacefully yours,
Judy Fisk Lucas
148 Wild Oak St., Ojai, CA 93023

Information by and about Mattie appears twice in her collection – July 17 (in honor of his birthday) and June 22 (in honor of his death anniversary).

The foreword is offered by Former U.S. President Jimmy Carter, who shares his thoughts on Mattie as an extraordinary person of peace. 

With gratitude, one of the two suggested peace organization recipients Judy suggests for donations is Mattie’s Foundation. 

We are grateful for this acknowledgment, and for any support that ripples out from this project – which will help us continue moving forthward with our peace mission.
