RELIGIOUS CALENDAR sponsored by. Increase the peace To The Leader: This week is the start of Freeport's two week long "Increase the Peace" campaign. It is our hope that by the time this letter is read, Freeport will be engulfed in a sea of orange ribbons signifying Freeport's stand for nonviolence. We are celebrating nonviolence. Our society has changed, as violence is increasingly a part of everyday life, particularly the life of our youth. This trend will not change by itself. It will only change when people of good faith make a commitment to change it. Here's an opportunity and we urge all Freeporters to take ! advantage of it. Parents, talk to your child about nonviolence; educators and coaches, discuss with your young people the importance of a peaceful lifestyle; government ^officials, find ways to promote nonviolence; business owners, hire a Freeport young person and contribute to their positive development; and everybody, display your orange ribbon around a tree. "You must be the change- you wish to see in the world" (Mahatma Ghandi). • Who created a world where our children turn to gangs to belong? Who created a
world where children turn to violence to settle disagreements? Who created a world where respect is a misused concept that leads to conflict instead of understanding? We did. We must look at ourselves. Because the world in which our children must grow is the world we gave them. If we allow our children to teach themselves, then how can we be upset with the lessons they've learned? It takes a village to raise a child. Martin Luther King, Jr. was a crusader for nonviolence. But his message has been lost, and that is because we allowed it to be lost. We don't need a new champion for peace and nonviolence, we need for all of us to have a little of that champion in us. Goodness in our community can get buried under the complexities of day-today life. But if we look, it is easy to find. Caring and nurturing our youth is not a controversial or complex concept. It is a simple one. Freeport Pride, together with many other Freeport organizations is sponsoring the Freeport Increase the Peace campaign. We urge Freeporters to be a part of it. The purpose of the campaign is to promote peace. The campaign is meant to be an opportunity for Freeporters to express their concern (continued on page 7)
