Ira Sandperl helped start the Resource Center for Nonviolence by leading “Conversations in Nonviolence” at the whale park near Seabright in 1976. He co-founded the Institute for the Study of Nonviolence with Joan Baez, and was co-activist with her in civil rights and anti-war nonviolent action.”We are deceived into believing that we can get the kind of world we seek by doing the very things we are trying to get rid of. ‘Just a little more violence to end violence.’… We get what we do; not what we intend, dream or desire. We simply get what we do. Recognizing this and applying it would, in a generation, bring about the transformation that alone can put an end to the fear, suspicion, and misery which at present hold such terrible sway over our lives.” From Ira’s book, A Little Kinder.” See irasandperl.org. And know that we live with Ira’s insistence and humor in us. (Peter)
