By Ira Harritt

I recently had the pleasure of making presentations to two very different groups, but both experiences were very heartening.

One group was made up of retired clergy, who had many years of preaching under their belts. I shared thoughts and hopes for peace. I discussed a quote from Antoine de Saint Exupéry, author of the The Little Prince, who once wrote “If you want to build a ship, don't drum up the men to gather wood, divide the work and give orders. Instead, teach them to yearn for the vast and endless sea.”

Love Seen in Public: An Interview with Annie Frundle in Kansas City

Annie Frundle, an Avila University social work student, began working half-time with ASFC Kansas City as a social work intern in August. Annie has been learning about AFSC's work and assisted with preparations for the Crossroads peace festival on October 1.

Her placement requires both “macro” experiences (e.g. policy chance, organizing, public education, advocacy) and “micro” experiences (e.g. social work counseling, identification of needed services, etc.)

At the peace festival, Jon Krieg asked Annie why she's interning with AFSC.
