  1. Leah, it’s so exciting that one of the drone quilts is at the WILPF convention and even better that you have a chance to meet and interact with some of the most inspiring women in the world.
    Democracy Now! is also present and this morning they did a series of interviews with several women who are Nobel Prize laureates.

    Here’s the link to one with Jody Williams that particularly resonated with me on the topic of drones and beyond that robotic killing machines:

    But the whole program included others like Mairead Maguire, and Leymah Gbowee, .

    Amy will be interviewing others during the next few days but my favorite clip from today’s show was the one where each of the women spoke of what needs to change in the US behavior of militarism. They also shared some messages about how to bring this about:

    Have much joy, share your own visions and creativity, learn from our sisters and bring all that wisdom back home!

    With appreciation and hope,
    Mickie
