Maybe we can all get along
« on: June 05, 2014, 07:01:32 PM »
I saw this in my subscription feed (Yes, I subscribe to Stanford University.  The Store House doesn't fill itself ex nihilo), and the description alone brought a smile to my face. 

Tufts University Jewish Chaplain and Executive Director of Tufts Hillel for 34 years, Rabbi Jeffrey Summit and photojournalist Richard Sobol presented a multimedia talk about their involvement with Delicious Peace. It is a story of coffee, music and world peace.

The coffee is grown by more than 1000 Christian, Muslim and Jews who live in a rural region of Uganda and are members of a fair trade cooperative called "Peace Kawomera" - kawomera means in "delicious" in Luganda. The farmers make music together, music that Summit found so inspirational that he had to share it with the world.

I wasn't sure exactly where to share this - Good and Cuddly was a close second - but I figured this place needed a bit of a respite from the usual.

Coffee, anyone?

So... what are the odds we can get the Republicans and Democrats to go grow some coffee?  I'll donate $10 to buy em some land...  ;)

Heh.  Let's start with the easy ones first.
