Tanenbaum’s 15 Peacemakers in Action threw off their jetlag to participate in a full day of trainings from morning to night. They attended sessions about the Peacemakers Delegation to Nigeria, trainings on social media, a presentation about building networks, and a final group workshop to brainstorm the purposes of a potential Peacemakers in Action Network.
Peacemakers Survive First Full Day of Training!
They also stopped their work to remember two Peacemakers who died in the years since their last retreat in Sarajevo, Osnat Aram-Daphna from Israel and Reverend Dr. Roy Magee from Ireland. Not to mention, some woke up at 4:30 am for Suhoor- a predawn meal before a day of fasting for Ramadan- while others had a special dinner in preparation for the Tisha B’av fast tomorrow. And the people who woke up early for Suhoor forgot their keys and couldn’t get back to their rooms until 7 am!
If only we could all have such energy and motivation!
