A Party of Transcendence

The veterans who begged forgiveness at Standing Rock for generations of American atrocities have inspired Robert Koehler with a vision to transform the Democratic party and shift it's consciousness "beyond racism, beyond war, beyond exploitative capitalism . . . beyond militarism and a punishment-based justice system, beyond alienation from nature and the circle of life."

From Standing Rock to World Peace

Lindsey Paris-Lopez finds profound hope in the ceremony of repentance and forgiveness at Standing Rock between the veterans and the Native Elders. When members our armed forces repent of the atrocities they have inflicted on others, they subvert our culture of violence from within. May repentance and forgiveness reach from Standing Rock to the ends of the earth.

Where to Turn

On Armistice Day, Kathy Kelly remembers those struggling in the face of US imperialism and greed, from Standing Rock to Afghanistan and around the world. "These sorrows, so painfully real, can help all of us yearn above all for an understanding by people worldwide, and here in my own frightened, divided country—an understanding that we live in a real world, beset with multiple wars, and must at last turn to each other, prepared to live more simply, share resources more radically, and abolish all wars in order to build a real peace."
