I'm sure we'll be getting this DVD for our library when it is
available for purchase, but you don't want to miss seeing it now. I'm
sure it will provide a great vehicle for discussion with family,
friends, co-workers and neighbors about hearing and following the call
of conscience, the real peace that involves justice and the ongoing
efforts to change our country's policy to prioritize human needs
instead of war.
