Our Ripple Effect
Posted by Fran Faraz on Sep 5, 2018
What’s the last really good book you read, the book that you would most readily recommend to a friend? Why did you enjoy it?
The last book I read was Peace Pilgrim. I was given this book by a teacher in a Peace Class at Golden West College. The story really impressed me. It’s a true story about one woman’s walking journey to spread her vision of peace and love in the world. Always joyful, she carries her message of peace and love while walking tirelessly across all fifty states, some provinces of Canada, and parts of Mexico. Her goal: world peace. This book may not be for everyone, but her story should resonate with anyone seeking a more loving and peaceful world. I enjoyed this book because I’m hopeful the world can be peaceful and loving, and anything is possible. As well as Peace Pilgrim, I also readily recommend A Call to Action (Women, Religion, Violence, and Power) by Jimmy Carter. Carter’s book is about women’s struggles throughout history and present.
Hope we get present to ripple effect of our actions.
