The invasion of Ukraine has the potential to become a war extending throughout Europe.  Putin has destroyed Aleppo and Grozny and has threatened the use of nuclear weapons.  Russian soldiers were sent into the area around the contaminated and still radioactive Chernobyl nuclear plant. Now they are stationed in the Zaporizhzhia nuclear power plant, the largest in Europe.   Contact Max at mobuszewski2001 at Comcast dot net or 410-323-1607.

30] – Check out 2024 PEACEBUILDING CURRICULUM -- EMPATHY 2.0 HOW DO WE OVERCOME POLARIZATION? It is a ZOOM Gathering on Tues., April 23 at 8 PM ET.  Explore the following questions: How did America become so polarized? What is the way out?  Empathy can help us move from fear and mistrust to connection and cooperation. Empathy helps us deeply listen to those we disagree with, without needing to share our opinions and “facts” to convince people they are “wrong.” Empathy helps us remain open, patient, curious and fully present, without judgment. Is this the answer to polarization? Can we do this? Can we have empathy for those with opposing views and remember they have the same fears and needs we do? Or is there more to do?  RSVP at

33] -- Food & Water Watch [] will talk about Planet vs Plastics on Wed., April 23 from 3 to 4 PM ET.  The fight against plastic pollution can feel like an uphill battle. From single-use plastic products to micro-plastics, we are facing a pollution crisis that’s threatening our drinking water, planet, and even our health. Join in for a virtual event to learn how, together, we can work for solutions to this problem.

It’s time we stop it at the source – plastic-producing companies and the fossil fuel industry, which provides the chemicals used in 99% of plastic.  At this event, you’ll hear from experts about the fossil fuel-to-plastic pipeline and the policy solutions that will get to the heart of the problem — banning certain types of single-use plastics and holding corporations accountable for cleanup and waste management.
