Vol. XVII Number 4
|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.|
We don't need to increase our goods nearly as much as we need to scale down our wants. Not wanting something is as good as possessing it.

Peace is a product of justice. But justice is not enough. Love is necessary -- the love that makes us feel that we are brothers and sisters is properly what makes for true peace.
Things to look forward to:
