Judy Lucas is gathering 1000 Pieces of Peace – or more! Modeled after the story of Sadako and the 1000 origami cranes, Judy is “gathering poems, quotes, and prose pictures about peace from writers around the world, of all ages and backgrounds, published or not. They will be arranged in a book, the proceeds of which will go exclusively toward building in West Virginia the worlds first silly hospital, a proto-typical model of health care delivery” – this based on the medical philosophy of Patch Adams. Visit the Patch for Peace page or the Gesundheit! Institute site for more information.
To participate in the 1000 Pieces of Peace, visit this page for submission information. Though the website says the deadline has passed, Judy has assured me she will accept submission until June 30. Don’t delay your piece of peace!
