The things written in the newsletter do not necessarily reflect the thoughts, opinions, and beliefs of everyone in the Peace Studies office or Kenapocomoco Coalition. If you have something you would like to add to the newsletter, please contact Andrew Duffy, the Peace Studies intern and editor of the Kenapocomoco Newsnotes. email: or call X5343. Thanks.

"Waging war is, ultimately, a political act that requires state political power. Bush and his friends may have it now. But they are not guaranteed to have it forever."

Announcing Next Year's Peace Studies Intern:

We are pleased to announce that the Peace Studies Intern for the 2003-04 academic year will be Heidi Gross '02.

A short note from Heidi:

"Many of you know me, but for those who don't, I'm a 2002 graduate of Manchester University, where after a brief period as a pre-med student, I majored in sociology. I've spent the last year working through Brethren Volunteer Service (BVS) as a workcamp coordinator, planning week-long workcamps (like Habitat for Humanity's annual Spring Break trip) for junior highs, senior highs, and young adults. I'm excited about being back on campus, and looking forward to being your very own Peace Studies Intern!"
