Dear marianne perez
Am happy to see what you have been able to do in your area for humanity. May God guide, protect, bless you.
When you have peace with the youth, whole countries have development

As Nigerian Muslims join their counterparts all over the world to celebrate the Eid-el-Fitri yesterday, Prince Godwin korieocha has admonished the country’s religious and political leaders to let the fear of God always guide their actions and decisions.

It’s the fear of God that would make the leaders realize their responsibilities, reflect on them and drive them to discharge their duties honestly to the development of the country and the wellbeing of the citizenry.

“It is this fear of Allah that will drive those who Allah has bestowed with power over administration or the mind of others or over knowledge and wisdom, to make them reflect and ensure that the trust bestowed upon them by Allah is not betrayed.

I pray Allah to guide those of our leaders in politics, business, religion, military, indeed, all Nigerians to reflect on their responsibilities and discharge these responsibilities with the fear of Allah,” he stated.
In the task of nation-building, it also behaved on all to work hard and act responsibly, honestly and transparently so that the country could be taken to the next level of development.
“I call on Nigerians and Moslems in the world to fear Allah because that is the first great achievement of any human being and I hope this fear of Allah will lead us to help our fellow countrymen and to contribute our own quota to the development of Nigeria and humanity,” he further pointed out.

Nigeria was facing developmental challenges in the face of global recession and urged all to work hard and transparently respond to the needs of the youth who he said must be guided to channel their creative energies and academic endowments to positive results and the general development of our great country Nigeria

We need peace in Nigeria, peace in Africa, peace in Asia, peace in Middle East, and peace in the world. With peace the world will be a batter place for all of us.
Have a wonderful day
Barke de sallah to you all in the peace family.

Hi Mary Hope--

Good to hear from you. I'm doing many things... I'm on the board of NYers for a Department of Peace ( and our latest project is to organize community dialogue groups sponsored by city council members to discuss violence in the various communities and identify what programs already exist and what communities are lacking. I assume you're still in the DC area. You can get in touch with campaign headquarters by emailing Wendy Greene ( or Kathy Kidd ( They'll be able to let you know what is going on and connect you with others.

In other peace news... I'm developing a project with a couple friends from high school around theater and conflict transformation. We haven't quite figured out what it's going to look like, but we have some good momentum and enthusiasm.

Congrats to your daughter on getting into Brandeis. Is she doing the coexistence program there? FYI, the head of student campaign for a Dep't of Peace is there. If she wants to get involved too, she should contact Aaron Voldman or Julia Simon Mischel (

Hi Marianne:
What are you doing these days? I have finally finished my PhD. My daughter is a freshman at Brandeis University and my son just finished his college applications for next year. So for the first time in years I actually have some free time!!
What are you doing in terms of the Dept. of Peace Campaign? That is something I would like to get involved with myself.

Maianne, what a great picture!

You can see it on Brian Lehr Live:
Or listen to it on the Brian Lehr show: (at the bottom of the page)

I think I'm talking about the Department of Peace Campaign in that frame... or maybe explaining the difference between violence and conflict. ;-)
