Summer marks an exciting time for the Center for Peacemaking.
The three month break allows Peacemakers to take their skills and knowledge of non violence into practice throughout the world.
This post comes from Claire Wild Crea who is exploring the practice of nonviolence with the community of Las Delicias in El Salvador.
I have been in El Salvador for 3 days now and I have begun to re-adjust to life here. I am loving the language, the food and reuniting with old friends after 6 months. I have already experienced such beautiful and painful things, but such is the duality of El Salvador.
I will begin working this week in the community of Las Delicias. They are working on so many wonderful projects to improve life and promote peace throughout the community. I will explain these projects more in depth once I begin working and can better understand them.
On Saturday I was able to return for the first time to the community of Las Delicias. It was so beautiful to reunite with some many people I love. I could feel a sense of peace washing over me and I slipped right back into my place in the community. I know this is where I am supposed to be and there is a huge potential for great things to come in these next two months.
