Peace on Earth.

Many of our American troops are returning. Click here to see an inspiring example.

They represent the best of America—they make the hardest sacrifice—as do their families. And in a down economy, they need all of our support and love upon their return.

    Thanks for thinking of us.
    One thing: Those of us with loved ones in the fight, know that in our place in Iraq will be thousands of contractors. They will do the hard work of rebuilding infrastructure from roads to the health care system. To those families whose loved ones endure difficult conditions, pay that is often exaggerated by the media, we offer our support and understanding.

    To those who would like to politicize us, we ask for you not to do so. We are ever faithful Americans, cognizant of the bravery shown, the fear, the triumphs, and also the struggles ahead. Polemics –even those that are mentioned in an off-handed way, can act as triggers, and one must –regardless of how you feel, put them aside if you want to offer to help. Because our first concern is each individual, and affirming the humanity in each. Follow us on WarRetreat.Org. If you have an event that is non-political, yoga-based, and dedicated to reducing stress, let us know.

  2. [...] I think it’s about time we celebrate. Because, these heroes need our support and love, too. [...]
