To ALL of our global neighbors

Believe it. Celebrate it. Share it.
Nurture… offer… ACCEPT…

#StopTheViolence
-
Read an excerpt from Mattie’s “Just Peace book. This 7-paragraph e-mail was written more than a decade ago as an outline for a school assignment. The message Mattie shared so many years ago is still relevant —  and needed — today.

-

Please take a few minutes to read these thoughts from Mattie.

-

This is one of the last messages Mattie ever wrote. He was not strong enough to complete the essay he planned in this e-mail. But his passion for and love for all of humanity never wavered, and I believe that today, he is kneeling in prayer — with hope, for peace.
