These videos from Playing for Change: Peace Through Music are beautiful and inspiring:
To see more, go to their website or their youtube channel.
What a wonderful movement. As they say on their website, “No matter whether people come from different geographic, political, economic, spiritual or ideological backgrounds, music has the universal power to transcend and unite us as one human race.”

I am very excited to have finally connected with a local community mediation program. I am now on their list of volunteers and am scheduled to do my very first mediation (with an experienced co-mediator) on August 14. I am definitely a bit nervous but glad to finally be progressing again towards my goal of being a mediator. It was frustrating to do the training several months ago but then have no place to apply and develop my new skills. Now I finally have my chance! I guess after the 14th I will be able to say that I am a mediator, albeit an inexperienced one 🙂
