"Hello Carl, On a visit to the Jeanette Rankin Peace Center in Missoula, Montana I purchased a small black and white peace button. I have received many compliments on the small size and, of course, the timelessness of the message. Later, I thought that one thing I could do for the cause of peace is to carry buttons with me, not only passing them out to individuals who comment about mine, but looking for opportunities to let the powerful influence of this symbol speak for itself and spread the message.
The inclusion of the story of the symbol with the buttons is an added plus.
Your website was very easy to navigate, and purchase was painless. Thanks for that."

". . . I was surfing the web to find more information out about Earth day. We run an Equestrian center for terminally ill children and children with disabilities and we are hosting an Earth Day event, in which 52 children are coming to the ranch to plant trees and flowers and a pumpkin patch. I wanted to give the participants a gift so I thought peace signs and ecology buttons was a perfect gift.. I love your website and have told several teachers about it." -K2 Equestrian Center for terminally ill children

a teacher, I can say with great certitude, that your Peace
History has enriched my students' lives by preserving the collective
memories of those people either not found in history textbooks
or slighted- the peace makers. Blessed are they and you for
remembering them and thus honoring them." -

have neglected to tell you that I have so much appreciation
for the time and effort
you put into this Peace History.
It is wonderful for us to get and wonderful to know that
so many considerate people have struggled or noticed or thunk
about what's right and what's good, and they have paved the
way for the generations to come.
Thank you so much.
have been getting the Peace News for over three years now.
It is great to have a resource to show my school age children
the history of the movement to keep peace in all nations.
My husband also uses some of the stories in his junior
college level classroom teachings. Thank you." -

BEEN GETTING THE PEACE CALENDER FOR A LONG TIME, AND LOVE IT.
I think someone may have forwarded it to me, and I signed up
to get it. It's the best history book, and I wish school kids
would use it as a resource. I've been wearing the peace button
since the 1960's. Keep up the good work, Peace." - from Henderson,
just wanted to let you know that I truly enjoy receiving

been receiving your newsletter for a little over a year and
enjoy it very much. Thank you for the work you do. I’ve
been thinking about you and just wanted to share some thoughts.
My children attend a school where we have a Peace Night every
year. It’s usually the 2nd week of December. The purpose
is to bring not only our school community together, but also
to involve more of the public community as well. The children’s
usually do a couple of performances, we have a silent auction,
share a meal and there are several booths relating to promoting
peace in one way or another. I’m thinking perhaps you’d
like to be involved somehow. Perhaps donating something to
the silent auction, or maybe I could offer your items for sale,
or maybe both. My daughter receives tons of compliments whenever
she wears your black T with the white peace sign. She’s
7 years old and in 3rd grade. We’ve also handed out several
of your buttons and pencils..."
I really enjoy your newsletter. I will share with the like-minded.

you for including me on your list of people who receive the
Peacebuttons "Peace History" e-mail publications. I find them
extremely informative and look forward to receiving them.
Since receiving the weekly newsletter, I've encouraged my
children to read it and am delighted at their response. At
12- (twins) and 10-years-of-age, they are starting to comprehend how important peace, love,
and social justice can make the world a better place,
even if, for the time being, their world pertains
to school, a
playground, neighborhood, volleyball and basketball
discussed war, inequality,and
humanitarian issues by using "This Week In
History" as our guide. Honestly, I don't think
I would have thought to do so otherwise.
I believe it's my job to teach my children empathy,
patience, and understanding. And although this information is
raw at times, it allows them to see the good and bad of real
life as oppose to the fantasy 'reels' fed through television
or some school books.
