Vol. XVII Number 3
|The people in the Peace Studies Office bring the Kenapocomoco Coalition Newsnotes to you monthly during the academic year.. The purpose is to inform students, faculty, staff, and other interested folks of scheduled events and activities within the department and pass along other information that appears relevant or just somewhat interesting. The contents of the newsletter do not necessarily reflect the thoughts, opinions, and beliefs of everyone in the Peace Studies office or Kenapocomoco Coalition. If you have comments, suggestions, or items for the newsletter, please contact Heidi Gross, the Peace Studies intern, head cook, and editor of the Kenapocomoco Newsnotes. E-mail: firstname.lastname@example.org or call x5343. Thanks.|
When I despair, I remember that all through history the way of truth and love has always won. There have been tyrants and murderers and for a time they seem invincible but in the end, they always fall. Think of it, always.

There's a lot of reaction, analysis, prediction, wondering, and humor out there about the election. I don't know about you, but I find all of it pretty overwhelming. In this section of the Kenapocomoco Newsnotes, I've selected a few of my favorite websites and articles. Stay tuned - I'll keep adding things as I find them.
