Peace on Earth, Good Will To All

“Blessed is the season which engages the
whole world in a conspiracy of love.”

– HAMILTON WRIGHT MABIE

APCI’s artist and animator Jeff Bedrick captured the spirit of the season in A Christmas Carol oil painting reproduced by Elms Puzzles as a high-end, hand-cut wood puzzle.

Can You Buy Love? Adopt a Pet

by Aggie Perilli

The $295 my husband Michael and I paid to adopt a 15-pound Poodle Bichon Frise named Raphie from the Last Chance Ranch Animal Rescue in Quakertown, Pennsylvania, covered the cost of vaccinations, deworming, neutering, and medication for the prevention of kennel cough and other infections. That’s what our veterinarian charges for vaccinations alone.

The Last Chance Ranch had rescued Raphie from a high-kill shelter, where he lay in a fetal position in a far corner of his cage.

When the Last Chance Ranch’s Barbara Maroney led Raphie into the lobby to meet Michael and me, the skeletal Poochon dropped belly-up at our feet.

Inspiring a World of Difference


Delicious autumn! My very soul is wedded to it,
and if I were a bird I would fly
about the earth seeking the successive autumns.

Campaign Nonviolence Advances 1,600+ Peacemaking Actions

Over 1,600 marches, prayer vigils, festivals, and other events took place from September 16 to 24, 2017, across the United States and worldwide, as part of Campaign Nonviolence’s fourth annual “Week of Actions.” These actions culminated on September 21, the International Day of Peace. Thousands participated in this unprecedented grassroots campaign to build a culture of peace free from racism, war, poverty, and environmental destruction.

Said Dr. Ken Butigan, cofounder of Campaign Nonviolence and professor at DePaul University, “People across the United States rallied together to end violence and injustice and begin peacemaking. Our unified voices are urging policy shifts that advance peace, justice, and environmental restoration and protection.”

Headstand in a Helmet

by Aggie Perilli

During a yoga class in Buchanan Park in Lancaster, Pennsylvania, a passing motorcyclist saw some of us in a headstand. With his helmet on, the motorcyclist dropped his head to the ground and joined us. As the motorcyclist shot his legs into the air, we whooped and cheered.

The man hopped to his feet, thrust his fists in the air and we whooped again. Then the helmeted stranger jumped on his motorcycle and rode away.

We glided through the rest of our yoga practice still laughing.

Communication Conveys Empathy and Shared Understanding

Just as interest and trust in politicians fell to an all-time low, a lineup of visionary Democrats restored hope and enthusiasm with successful and even masterful speeches. Whether or not you agree with their messages, below are empathetic communications that have inspired a world of oneness.

Michelle Obama:

  • “I love that, for Barack, there is no such thing as ‘us’ and ‘them.’ He doesn’t care whether you’re a Democrat, a Republican or none of the above. He knows that we all love our country, and he’s always ready to listen to good ideas…he’s always looking for the very best in everyone he meets.”
