WNY Peace Center’s 51st Annual Dinner

Could there be any better cause to attend, other than supporting the efforts of the WNY Peace Center? To think that in this day and age, we are still fearful that war could break out is truly sad. We have not learned our lessons. Countries all over the world are still at odds with one another. Think of the death tolls. Think of the money wasted that could go towards education, and feeding the hungry.

What ran through your mind when you heard that the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) was sending out a test message to cell phones, as part of a national public warning system? The Presidential Alert certainly got people talking, as did the false ballistic missile alert in Hawaii earlier this year. As crazy as this all sounds, we still live in a time when we feel unsafe, at risk, and vulnerable.

Thankfully, organizations like the WNY Peace Center are around to give us hope that someday we can all live in a happy, healthy state that is free of the worries of war. That’s why it’s important that we support their efforts. One way that we can do that is by attending the WNY Peace Center’s annual dinner.

“Join us to celebrate our 51st Annual Dinner, with special guest – peace activist and author, Kathy Kelly! The WNY Peace Center Annual Dinner is a time to gather together to celebrate peace through justice, network with community members and support an organization promoting activism for a better world. Kathy Kelly will speak on Uniting Our Struggles and Ending Our Wars.” – WNY Peace Center
