ENVISION THIS: Making a commitment to end all war and create a sustainable and just peace
"I understand that wars and militarism make us less safe rather than protect us, that they kill, injure and traumatize adults, children and infants, severely damage the natural environment, erode civil liberties, and drain our economies, siphoning resources from life-affirming activities. I commit to engage in and support nonviolent efforts to end all war and preparations for war and to create a sustainable and just peace."
Are you ready to sign on to this statement? Our guest, David Swanson, invites you to do so at http://worldbeyondwar.org. David, author of WAR NO MORE, presents what numerous reviewers (including include Mairead Maguire, Nobel Peace Laureate and Cindy Sheehan, author and peace activist) have called the best existing argument for the abolition of war. It demonstrates that abolishing war is possible, necessary, not inevitable, and dependent on our commitment.
To convince us that ending war is a potential reality, not a pie-in-the sky dream, he presents a litany of social ills related to violence that have been, for the most part, overcome: slavery, blood feuds, the death penalty, and torture. He strives to convince us that "good war" is an oxymoron.
According to Author: Medea Benjamin, David “has a knack of writing as if he were speaking to you at the kitchen table. In No More War you can picture him trying to convince a skeptical neighbor that war can truly be ended. What initially sounds like a crazy idea becomes more and more rational as David whittles away at each argument his detractors make.”
Join ENVISION THIS talking around that kitchen table with him Wednesday, January 15th. He might just inspire you to deepen your commitment to ending war.
Host Kevin Hunter features guest John Leber from Swanson Bark and Wood Products, Inc in Longview, Washington. Swanson Bark and Wood Products is a woodwaste recycling facility.
Here are some thoughts from John:
My advice is to be patient. Don’t get too spun up over any one thing. Life will hand you things that will give you ulcers. How you deal with those things will determine the number of ulcers you end up with.
Have a plan. Figure out what you’re going to sell, who you’re going to sell it to, how you’re going to make it, how much you can sell it for and how much it’s going to cost you to make it. If it doesn’t look like it’s going to work, take a pass and try the next thing. If you keep a positive attitude, there will be a next thing, probably more next things than you can handle. Love life. Share your wisdom

Emerging from Alabama’s Gulf Coast like an exciting and electric force of musical nature, multi-talented composer, trumpeter and vocalist David Jones calls his brand of Smooth Jazz, “Soul Jazz” and titles it BEAUTIFUL MUSIC! There’s so much more here than that title implies. With the help of guitarist Eric Essix, Jones gets the party off to a soulful, funk-drenched start, having his trumpet declare on his radio hit, “Let The Players Play.” He and Essix keep the rock/soul hoppin’ on “Glory Be.” Jones includes lovely vocals and trumpet ballads and even an explosive Gospel tune. It’s BEAUTIFUL MUSIC for fans with expansive tastes! ~Jonathan Widran
