Review for Little Friends For Peace Inc, Mt Rainier, MD, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I appreciate the previous poster's appreciation for LFFP's mission and his respect for the environment too. I think, though, that he or she may be generalizing from something that happened early in their time there. The Parks are not using the Oasis property as the headquarters for their small nonprofit, only as an adjunct to it. They invite visitors the way any family would invite friends, never in numbers or with a frequency that would negatively affect septic systems or any aspect of the environment. I'm fairly sure that the writer has learned this and been reassured since this comment was posted in 2010. If not, I hope he'll walk over and say Hi one weekend when they're there!

Review for One Common Unity, Washington, DC, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I've worked for peace in one way or another for all of my 66 years, and I admire OCU for combining all the elements I have seen to be most effective. Peace education will be as essential to our One Common future as the 3Rs. Hawah and his friends deliver it through the arts, those universal languages, and through other whole-body experiences like yoga and drumming. They inspire young people, and people of all ages, by radiating peace and joy. I'm delighted to see this excellent organization gain the recognition it deserves.
