Peace Heroes

Peace Heros can be visionaries, theorists, advocates, trainers, teachers, organizers, mediators, nonviolent activists, artists or martyrs.  Every Peace Hero has inner strength.  They are found everywhere from the highest levels of government to the school yard.  Each of us can act for good, for healing, for hope for peace and justice.  Here are some.
