Vol. XVII Number 4

December 2004

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. email: 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.

Weekly Reminders:



New Stuff In and Around the Peace Studies Office (PSO):

We've got a Free Shelf!!  That's right - an opportunity for you to get rid of crap you don't want but other people might, and a place for you to score free stuff that you might actually use.  Stop by and browse through the selection!

We also have newly organized video and magazine collections, thanks to our lovely assistants Amy and Marilyn.  These resources are for YOU!  Please make use of them for papers and projects, or just for free-time diversions.  Here are some highlights.



And while we're at it, how about a few books that were recently added to the Funderburg Library Collection:



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.

--Oscar Romero
