January 8  Newsletter

Dear Friends,

Welcome to the New Millennium. It is here. And it is very exciting. I trust you all had a wonderful Holiday season and a wonderful New Year's celebration. No major glitches, no terrorism, no Armageddon. It was as if the world wanted to try out its best behavior and see if we could all pull it off. And we did.

I have a lot of news for you but have had little time to pull it all together yet so I have just a few items now and I'll send out a newsletter next week.

 

WELCOME NEW EMAIL CORRESPONDENTS:

Mariela Solari (Motevideo, Uruaguay), Lizzy Poole (Women's Int'l League for Peace and Freedom, Florida), Linda Mills (Family Services, Winston-Salem, NC), Domestic Violence Council of Western Australia, Kathy (Alabama Coalition), Michelle Weldon (author, formerly with Chicago Times), Marcela Bordenave (Congresswoman for Buenos aires, Argentina)

SPECIAL MESSAGE ABOUT ONE OF OUR LEADERS:

Donna Pygott, our coordinator from North Carolina wrote me to say that she has to turn her coordination responsibilities over to someone else while she recovers from Meniere's Disease. This is a troublesome disease of the inner ear and she has debilitating episodes with this disease. Her replacement is Mel Chilton. We welcome Mel and we'll miss Donna terribly. Hopefully she'll be able to rejoin us one day.

Would you please send Donna your well wishes, even if you don't know her. It is so wonderful to receive email well wishes from our Silent Witness network around the world. Her email is DMPYGOTT@email.msn.com

 

I leave you today with a resolution that was sent to me this week. It touched me and I hope you will enjoy it too.

"Resolve to be tender with the young, compassionate with the aged, sympathetic with the striving, and tolerant with the weak and wrong...because sometime in your life you will have been all of these."

Cheers,
Janet
