Friday Peace Vigil, Youngstown, OH, and surrounding area:

Friday, April 19, 2013
4:00 p.m. to 5:00 p.m.
Downtown on the Square (Federal Plaza E. & Wick Ave.)

Ray Nakley (330-506-1999) and Ron Dull (330-518-9881) will hold their weekly Peace Vigil this Friday, April 19, from 4:00 p.m. to 5:00 p.m., at the corner of Downtown on the Square (Federal Plaza E. & Wick Ave.), Youngstown, OH. They invite anyone who is interested in showing their support for ending conflict in the world to join them. Hold out positive thoughts for that!


As I write this, Tony Fasline is busy making last-minute preparations to spread his ‘snowbird wings’ and ‘soar’ back to his cold northern home in Youngstown. He promises that, after his return to Yankee-land, he’ll send me a complete update on activities to promote peace and prosperity in the Youngstown area.

Meanwhile, Tony assures me that each Friday, at least a few people gather at the above location is downtown Youngstown to protest the traditions of war and poverty. Among other things, he’s led me to sign up for newsletters from the Dorothy Day House, which serves as the center of social service activity in the Youngstown area. By this time next week, I will not only have news from Tony, but I’ll have had a chance to read some of the news in the Dorothy Day House newsletter.

Meanwhile, you can sign up for those newsletters too. Just go to:

Scroll to the bottom of the home page to share your email address with them and receive updates from them.

Reports from Youngstown indicate these Friday afternoon vigils are well attended by people standing for peace and many other social causes, and there’s plenty of room for more. If you want to make a public statement to end war, poverty, and/or any other of numerous social ills, feel free to join this group, with or without your own sign to share your thoughts about social justice with the world.

Meanwhile, join me in a vow to use our blessings, skills, and talents to build a society without poverty or war in which everyone is able to enjoy at least the basic benefits of prosperity and peace.

Positive thoughts and, for those who are believers, prayers for all the suffering souls all around the world!
