Think, for example, how school children in Sedona or other U.S. cities can benefit from sharing with these strong children in Burundi who know firsthand the true costs of war.

We thank Sedona for being part of this process. In many parts of the world a little goes a very long way. Please consider donating to the Global Family Program. All donations come back with a verifiable receipt. But remember too that this is about much more than money. Individuals and Cities of Peace can offer their time, talent, knowledge, influence and voice to communities in need everywhere and in return often receive far more than they have given. Together we can be compassion in action.

Nature’s peace will flow into you as sunshine flows into trees. The winds will blow their own freshness into you, and the storms their energy, while cares will drop off like autumn leaves. As age comes on, one source of enjoyment after another is closed, but Nature’s sources never fail. ~John Muir 22 IMAGINE l Autumn 2015
