'Haiti is Freedom,' My Friend Told Me. That Was News To Me. - Cross Posted from usip.org

“Haiti is freedom” was my friend Sabina’s answer, when I asked her why she loves it there. We were walking under palm trees, returning from a festival organized by a youth center in the coastal city of Jacmel.  Sabina, originally from New Jersey, now lives in Haiti working on an initiative to identify successes in locally-driven development around the country.…See More

I am trying to promote the Arc plan and and a discussion at;

http://www.internationalpeaceandconflict.org/forum/topics/the-arc  

The Arc

 The arc A Formal Structure for a Palestinian State produced by the Rand Corporation. It is a giant leap in the right direction into finding a peaceful solution in the Palestinian-Israeli crisis. It is a ten year plan to develop the West Bank one day connecting it to Gaza. It addresses many of the problems the people of Palestine face in forming a viable state. Only with a prospers Palestinian society that resembles the society of the State of Israel will the people of both societies have any real security. 

They spent more than 3 million dollars and four years in the development of this plan. It is a thirty-three billion dollar plan over ten years that addresses the Palestinian issues of transportation, housing, education, commerce, justice and the contiguity of the State of Palestine. It is a very comprehensive plan creating a clear image of a much better way of life for the Palestinian people. Restoring their dignity and hope for a better future for their children is the best first steps towards peace.

This is the link to an 8 minute and 35 minute video outlining the Arc.The Arc: A Formal Structure For a Palestinian State | RAND 

http://www.rand.org/multimedia/video/2008/08/26/the_arc.html 

Here is a link to the Rand Corporation’s web page to the Arc Reach Brief. There is a link to the full outline version of the Arc at the bottom of the page.

There is no way to peace, peace is the way. The Arc is the way for long term peace to become a reality in the Palestinian/Israeli crisis. The challenges are to make the Arc a reality that more people can see, as well as working out the full implementation of the Arc’s plan. The earlier more people get behind a plan like the Arc the sooner it could become a reality. Everyone should write to their elected representatives letting them know about the Arc and your support of the plan. Who could not support such a plan of a way to peace as the arc. Global Crier

Amanda, I read your idea on Grounded Theory I'm very interested in the outcome.  I research in production-related activities of women who operate micro and small enterprises. Will participate in the discussions.

Dear friend
"Vasudev kutukbkam" entire world is a family, this was a teaching of our indian culture and traditional.
we created countries, boundaries,religions,cast,race for a genuine reason or a false reasons for any reason.but this the time to realize that we are one and we naturally interconnected with each other ,which we can just realize by watching inhale and exhale of breaths the source is same ,without any discrimination,religion, boundaries, equally for all living life of universe .When we understand this simple thing then we must understand how our and other's life is equally important, valuable ,respectable .we should follow the nature's rule ,non violence .peace ,god has given us a human life not for destruction but for look after the wellbeing of all living life.
