“He challenges us to imagine a world in which ‘peace is inevitable.'” Hey, if that is not Dennis’ way of saying hello to IMAGINEPEACE.com, I don’t know what is! Our work has not been in vain. It’s choking me up… yoko
Almost nine years into longest war in US history, at a time when the US spends more on its military budget than the rest of the world combined and endless war seems a frighteningly realistic possibility, Maya Schenwar from TruthOut spoke with Rep. Dennis Kucinich (D-Ohio), a long-time advocate for peace. Kucinich reminds us that there is another way: that through unity, persistence and a deeply necessary change in mindset, we can move toward a world in which mutual respect and global connections shape foreign policy, and the self-fulfilling prophecy of war loses its tragic momentum. He challenges us to imagine a world in which “peace is inevitable.”
