BOOK OF THE MONTH - -"PEACEMAKING" BY THICH NHAT HANH
"You can look at war as a massing of arms and matérial and troops, but you can also see it as something else--as a delicate web of interwoven choices made by human beings, made out of a certain consciousness. The decision to order an attack, the choice to obey or disobey an order, to fire or not to fire a weapon. Armies and, indeed, any culture that supports them must convince the people that all the decisions are made already, and they have no choice. But that is never true."

We are a society blessed with an abundance of resources, which have been maximized to create untold numbers of toys. The abundance of things seems to leave us wanting more. And even having more does not seem to satisfy us. We appear to be a nation in crisis, exhibiting various forms of depression. Escalating violence pimples the nation. Preparations are being made for war in a country already devastated by years of military actions.

Yet, I remain hopeful because of the thoughtful people I have met or heard about, who would have us truly live in the shelter of one another's hearts. Many wonder about what they can do to create new traditions for themselves and their families in this season of potential hope. I think that we need to look to that which we love and to those people and things that have the potential of supporting and sustaining us.

Every season should be a season of joy and thankfulness. With so much pressure on people to shop, often beyond their available means, it is sometimes difficult to think clearly about what is really important because it is easy to get caught up in the mass agitation that is exhibited by others, while searching for those special gifts for loved ones. It is common to see people behaving frantically or out of character, as they search in nervous fear for something different, yet acceptable to loved ones and friends. If you find yourself among the hurried throng, remember to breathe.

Perhaps you and your family or friends, have come up with celebration ideas or created new traditions that you would like to share with Green Dove readers. Send them in and next year we will share them with our readers.

May our hearts grow stronger and any fears of not being enough of anything dissolve away.

Live happily and fully in the shelter of those you love. Reach out your hand and heart and expand your circle.

Look over this issue, perhaps you will find something in our community you want to help with. If you cannot find something here, look out from where you stand, and extend your hand

Petition for A Hold on Green Space Developments - 11/13/02 We citizens, concerned about the future of Bloomington, Indiana, do hereby petition the City of Bloomington to implement a temporary hold, or administrative slowdown on the approval of projects which would involve development of greenspaces as defined in the Environmental Commissions report on 'Greenspace Trends in Bloomington, Indiana 1993-2003"This measure is needed to correct what we consider an environmental crisis in which a critical, irreplaceable community resource is in imminent danger of depletion. We do this for the following reasons. 1. The previous Growth Policies Plan of 1991 was grossly ineffective in its stated goal of a 20% increase in tree cover by 2001. A 1998 study by the city showed a 3.25% decrease in tree cover and the most recent studies show a 25.6% loss of unprotectedgreenspace since 1993 and that the loss is occurring at an accelerating pace. 2. The new Growth Policies Plan while stating the intention that the city purchase greenspace for preservation, has not provided a practical process by which to achieve this goal before the largest most centrally located wooded areas best suited for preservation are developed. The 20 acre Burchfield and 22 acre Summit Woods proposals are cases in point. 3. As the Environmental Commission, in the afore mentioned, "Greenspace Trends" document states, "A long-term, pro-active plan would be superior to the last-chance, piecemeal approach we now have." 4. We need time to properly analyze the infrastructure needs for new developments due to the new implications of "concurrency". 5. Rezoning will be required to implement the intentions of the new GPP and this will take some time. 6. We feel that it only makes sense, and that it is the legal responsibility of the city, to slow down this process in order to give time for meaningful public input into critical decisions affecting the quality of life in this community forever.

Women Seeking Abortion Would Have to Obtain a "Death Warrant" in Georgia!

Subject: "What Opponents of a Woman's Right to Choose Don't Want You to Know

Anti-choice crusaders recently launched an egregiousattack against women's rights.

On Friday, November 15, anti-choice legislators in Georgia's House prefiled an unconstitutional bill (HB1) that would treat women who exercise their right to choose as "executioners."

Women seeking abortion would have to obtain a "death warrant" and go to trial against a court appointed guardian for her fetus. A jury would decide whether she should be forced to continue the pregnancy. Doctors who perform an abortion without a "death warrant" could be imprisoned for up to 5 years. It is hard to adequately express how outrageous this action by Georgia's anti-choice officials is.

This is an egregious violation of women's rights, and you probably won't read about it in the newspaper or hear about it on TV. These state legislative attacks
on choice are typically under the radar, and pro-choice
Americans don't have a chance to speak out against
them.

NARAL needs you to take action today. This is the first of a new wave of assaults on reproductive rights we can expect to see nationwide. Emboldened by this month's elections, anti-choice forces are pursuing an aggressive
agenda.

Please forward this information to 5 friends so they know just how serious anti-choice lawmakers are about ending legal abortion.

Contact NARAL!

DOWN LOADS FOR PEACE

by Gina Citoli
Alchemy VII

I have been a singer and songwriter with the group Alchemy VII for almost 9 years. The group has had rave reviews, international and national play and several #1 songs on Mp3.com. Their song "Aradia" was a final contender for the TV show "Witch Blade" and "The Natural Order of Things an Mp3.com blues pick. The highlight of the group's career was a journey to New York City in September of 2002. On arrival, our first stop was to Ground Zero. It was overwhelming and unbelievable to realize that there are people with enough anger and hate to have caused so much damage and pain. You could feel the bruised and raw feelings of the New Yorkers, and the soul of New York, in their long and steadfast process of healing.

We have performed many songs of peace to standing ovations around the country, but nothing compared to praying peace the next day in Battery Park with the Statue of Liberty directly behind us. It was awesome!! The park was full, it was a beautiful sunny Saturday afternoon, and there were people listening from the Ellis Island Ferry. The crowd was supportive to the point of inspiration. We needed to use the up-most care in how we performed, as we felt it was sacred ground. It was very humbling to witness the people of New York being strong and resilient, as they seemed to have grown immeasurably from their collective experience. We fell in love with and grew to further respect New York City and her people.

Since returning I have contemplated how we can make a difference in the world and how to bring a greater awareness of peace with our music. I asked myself how to use my talents and the talents of the members of the band to that end? After much contemplation, Downloads for Peace was conceived.

If you go to http://www.//alchemyvii.com you will find instructions as to how you can participate. We are starting with our Christmas Song, "Someday When Christmas Never Ends" It will be available for $2.00 a download. Half of the money will go to a peace organization that will be announced on the site. The other half will be divided between the writers, the people that have facilitated the project, and to help fund more musical projects that will promote peace, compassion, global and environmental awareness. More songs will be added and organizations will change, depending on the season and current events. We will take suggestions for future song's subject matter and for organizations in which to raise money for. There is also a page on our website that discusses the content and lyrics of our songs, and opens up to input and dialogue from readers and listeners. If this works well with Alchemy VII's music, we will expand and take submission from other artists. Our intention is to create a win-win situation for all involved, and to create a strong platform, and global voice for peace and healing!

Stop new-Terrain I-69
liberates others."
Pre-Thanksgiving Dinner a Success!
The pre-Thanksgiving dinner sponsored by Hoosier Environmental Council on Saturday, November 23, was a major success. Nearly 200 people from all over Indiana gathered at St. Thomas Aquinas Church gymnasium in Indianapolis to give thanks for the land that is threatened by the INDOT proposed I-69, new-terrain highway. Most of the colorful and tasty feast was grown on Indiana land. One table held food that was grown specifically on land that lies directly in the path of the proposed highway.

Governor Frank O'Bannon and his wife, Judy, were invited to the pitch-in. Since they chose not to appear, two plates of food were dished up from the "direct route" food to be presented to them later-a symbolic gesture of goodwill and a reminder that the land feeds the people.

Andy Knott and John Loveland of HEC spoke briefly to the crowd of the need to continue applying pressure to INDOT, the governor, and other elected officials to either build the new highway on the common sense, no new-terrain route of I-70-SR41, or not to build it at all. They were amazed by the turnout and had a renewed sense of hope that the people are indeed serious about this issue.

The Thanksgiving festival atmosphere was enlivened by the music of Bill and Glenda Breeden, and Mitch and Ilene Rice. There were highway songs, garden songs, sing-a-longs, and inspirational tunes. One woman, Katie, sang a buffalo chant in Lakota that reminded the Hoosier citizens of their history, their connection to the land.

Bill Breeden gave thanks in four directions for all that is sacred, for all that we are blessed with, for all that we stand to lose if the I-69 highway is built through new terrain, and reminded us of our grave responsibility to take care of the earth for all the grandchildren. After the crowd had eaten, and cleared the tables, Bill asked that they join hands in a circle and sing "Circle Round for Freedom." The last two lines expressed the spirit of the day: "Circle for the planet, circle for each soul-For the future of our children, keep the circle whole"!

The farmers, shop owners, gardeners, musicians, concerned citizens-from a tiny babe in arms to many folks with white hair-walked the two blocks to the governor's mansion led by the 14 foot puppet, Apple Butter Mama, made by the Friends of Owen County. It was an impressive, diverse group of people, carrying signs that read "No New Terrain Highway! Stop I-69!" that gathered in front of the mansion. John Loveland and CARR representatives, Sandra Tokarsky, and Rosie and Hannah King, presented the two plates of symbolic food to two security men at the O'Bannon's door. The crowd cheered, sang This Land Is Your Land, This Land Is My Land, and committed to stand together to prevent I-69 from slicing through family farms, forests, and wetlands. It was an inspiring day, a re-energizing day, for the opponents of the new terrain super highway.

For Whom The Bell Tolls

Dear Editor,

If all goes as planned, there will be a total of 15 human beings executed in the U.S.A. during the months of November and December. These men will be taken from secure cells and strapped down on gurneys in sterile killing rooms where their veins will be injected with chemicals for the express purpose of bringing their lives to an end. These premeditated murders will be documented on death certificates as "homicide".

Taxpayers will foot the bill, and, therefore, be accomplices to these murders. Wardens, guards, physicians, and other prison staff will be accomplices. We, the citizens of this country, will be accomplices because of our acceptance of capital punishment as a necessary evil; because of our silence in the face of such barbarism.

The men scheduled to be executed have loved ones, parents, siblings, even children. Imagine their pain and grief. We cannot heal the victims of the initial crimes with more violence. Old wounds will be ripped open. The crime will be revisited. Harsh memories will surface.

Thanksgiving. Christmas. 'Tis the season for love and compassion. While we prepare to celebrate the holidays, let's remember the fifteen men who are scheduled to be murdered, their families, the families of their victims, and all those prison officials who are involved in the executions. Human beings should not be deliberately killing other human beings. It's time to abolish the death penalty.

Sincerely,

Glenda Breeden
Printed with her permission

For Whom the Bells Toll is a national initiative to have religious organizations toll their bells whenever there is an execution. Glenda Breeden, member of the Bloomington Coalition to Abolish the Death Penalty is the U.U. organizer for this effort.

The following quote from Nelson Mandela is from his Inaugural speech in 1994:
"Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness, that most frightens us. We ask ourselves, who am I to be brilliant, talented, and fabulous? Actually, who are you not to be? You are a child of God. You 'playing small' doesn't serve the world. There's nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won't feel insecure around you. We were born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us. It's not just in some of us, it's in everyone. And as we let our light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others."
