We wish for you to join us in our 2nd Cup of Tea Peace Vigil,
person by hopeful person, friends with new friends
in homes, in parks, along the streets
and in the warm places of your hearts!
بار اول دوست , بار دوم برادر!
The first time, were friends. The second time, brothers.
2nd Cup of Tea Peace Vigil, our 2nd mile of love
Though we may be discouraged by the loud words, the self-interest, the disunity and the sinking sense of futility, we can share a cup of tea as we keep a vigil for peace.
Though we may be surrounded by neglect, anger, pride and the meaningless mire of violence, we can find mutual comfort in transforming our struggle for love.
Mohd Hussein and 8 other Afghan peace youth volunteers will begin their 2nd Cup of Tea Peace Vigil on Sunday, the 15th of November 2009, daily from 12 noon to 1 pm Bamiyan time, at the Bamiyan Peace Park.
[Note: some of the photos I took the other night are at the end of this video. More people are joining the effort to support peace in Afghanistan and the world. You can join, too.]

Dandelion Salad and Peace Works
We thank our peacemaker friends at PeaceWorks, in Missouri USA, for giving us their support. We were encouraged by all your smiles!
Thanks to Dandelion Salad, below is the link to the photos of the smiling faces from MO when the Peaceworks organization gathered for their annual dinner:
