Donna and I attended the International RI President’s Peace Conference in California last year and walked away feeling both invigorated and deeply concerned how we could best help bring peace to the world and to our communities. We should all be spending time to learn, listen, and do what we can.
See you at the Peace Conference March 31- April 1, 2017! Drop by and say “Hi!
