Seeking Balance One Tuesday at a Time

The International Day of Peace was established in 1981 by unanimous United Nations resolution. To learn more about peace day, visit: https://www.un.org/en/observances/international-day-peace.

Lawn Chairs for Peace

In Minneapolis, Minnesota , community and church folks are helping decrease violence by “seating themselves in lawn chairs on street corners in the most dangerous neighborhoods, and acting as “violence interrupters.” Police statistics show it’s working! Here’s more from the Good News Network.

Restoring Coral

Hoi Ha Wan, near Hong Kong, is now a protected coastal reserve. Past coral mining left nothing for coral to grow on and made restoration unlikely until a team working with Hong Kong university’s architecture department developed an artificial reef using a 3D printing facility. The reef is made from clay tiles. Learn more and watch an interesting video from CNN here.

Old Homes in Italy are Selling for One Euro

Towns in Italy are are selling abandoned old homes for one euro with the agreement for restoration. Read more about this innovative program at the Good News Network.

A Good Sign

Every day Donna was in the hospital for covid with no visitors allowed, her husband Gary stood outside her window with an I ❤ you sign. Donna is back home now and doing okay.

I’m following a story about firefighters working to save the oldest tree in ? California. Hopefully I’ll have good news on that soon. In the meantime, THANK YOU to all the firefighters, first responders, teachers, nurses, doctors, and medical workers doing their best to save lives all over the world.

  1. I love all these stories. Thank-you to all the people courageous enough to pursue peace. And I hope they save the trees in California; those old groves are so precious. Last I heard they wrapped the oldest in foil(?) to protect it.

  2. I hope they can save the tree.

  3. Gary’s devotion stands out for me today
