Roger R. Ricketts, Executive Director, Keokuk Area Community Foundation, established the "Peace Pipe Letters Fund," allowing non-profit status to our book sales and donations made to our organization. In addition, the KACF purchased 75 books and distributed those to libraries across Southeast Iowa, Western Illinois & Northeast Missouri. Background: https://www.peace-pipe-proposal.com





The question that confronts us today is the same as in 1931-32: Do our leaders have the capacity to reach beyond their grasp, to challenge us to seek the higher angels of nature, to choose "Be informed! Be informed!" rather than "Be afraid! Be afraid!" In the end, however, we know that world peace is too important to be left in the hands of our leaders. Peace starts in our own back yards when we speak our for understanding when their is disharmony, food security where there is hunger, health care where there is disease, education where there is illiteracy, conservation where there is environmental harm, sustainable development where there is poverty ... and when we write letters across border to build goodwill and better friendships. - William Tubbs (2019)
