I set out to show that nonviolence could deal with Hitler.

My novel, Denmark Rising, is lavishly praised as a compelling, impossible-to-put-down story that convincingly shows the Danes largely foiling Hitler with nonviolent strategies. It expands the possible and fires our imagination.

If you will read it, I will send you a free copy.

Peace and Grace,

Dr. Barry Clemson

Dear friend
"Vasudev kutumbkam" entire world is a family, this was a teaching of our Indian culture and tradition.
We created countries, boundaries,religions.But this is the time to realize that we are one, our source of life and breath is same , we naturally interconnected with each other.When we understand this simple thing then we must understand how our and other's life is equally important, valuable and respectable.God has given us a human life to look after the wellbeing of all living life in this planet.
