About Me: 

I'm a member of Peacemakers, Inc., a grassroots organization of women in Dallas. We have created three International Women's Peace Conferences, the last in 2007, which was attended by 1400 women, and featured three women Nobel Peace Prize winners.

And I make origami Peace Cranes to honor the little girl, Sadako, who died from the atomic bomb at Hiroshima. My website is: I've made almost 2000 and given them all away.

My Passions: 
My Challenges: 
My age 77
My Vision for the Future: 
A world where my children and grandchildren can live in peace
My Areas of Expertise:
