One of the great things about being an activist with World BEYOND War is getting to meet the true heroes of our time, those who can break the bonds of political conformity enough to follow their conscience and speak up on behalf of truth and love. Already having the honor of knowing Yurii Sheliazhenko over the past two years who remains a stalwart voice for freedom and human rights in Ukraine, this week I got to spend time with Larry Hebert, a young U.S. Airman who has decided that fixing aircraft to deliver weapons for genocide is not consistent with the values he signed up to defend.

And to cap it off, I had the privilege last month of seeing the memorial to Archibald Baxter in Dunedin, New Zealand. He was a World War I consciencious objector who was literally tortured by the British for his refusal to kill. I was able to dine with some of those responsible for creating and building this memorial to peace.
