It's one of the great ironies of human nature that so many citizens of the United States believe in religions that preach peace, but advocate policies that promote war.
There is a battle within the human spirit between our past as creatures of violence and our potential future of living in harmony.
You can be reminded of the spirit of peace each day with the ever-popular 2013 Peace Calendar offered with a minimum contribution by Truthout and BuzzFlash.
This year's calendar is dedicated to the idea of occupying the future. Different months focus on progressive ideals such as "End Patriarchy," "Bradley Manning Whistleblower," "Emancipation Proclamation," and "Together We Are Strong." Each month of this wall calendar includes a page of four-color original art work. In addition, there are over 200 people's history annotations on the days of the year, where you can write in special appointments and events.
The Syracuse Cultural Workers has created the Peace Calendar for 42 years, calling it "provocative, progressive, visionary and essential."
Truthout has copies on hand right now to ship out for Holiday gifts. You can order them by clicking here or calling 213-489-1971.
The Peace Calendars are great for personal use and giving away as gifts.
