    Thanks, Koozma. You are steadily keeping going. Keep up the good work. I am just finishing up my pacifism book snd helping to complete a memorial cairn to remember conscientious objectors to war here in Manitoba. The 75th anniversary of CO service in WWII (1941-2016) here is motivating various groups to creative involvement with calling for a peace culture in the country (writing a drama, preparing a video,publishing new volumes of books, running a peacemakers’ school here at the university,etc.)
