Thanks for making the American Friends Service Committee (AFSC) vigil/protest happen so nicely today in front of the Oakland Federal Building.
I'm glad to have participated, and thanks, too, for the invitation to bagpipe. Such multicultural, pro-people gatherings are quite salutary in their idea-sharing for the public good, and even as a kind of community service (patriotism, in a best sense?).
Bagpiping can add an unique voice to such demonstrations. (And please let folks know that I pipe for weddings, funerals and events for a living - http://scottmacleod.com/piping.htm).
Since so many of the messages today were about education, and people-to-people communication, I would have loved to have spoken briefly about World University and School, but we ran out of time. I'm looking for ways, too, to get the word out, and build a community of great teachers/editors/contributors ('edit this page' - http://worlduniversity.wikia.com) to make open teaching and learning very helpful to people, as well as to make it rock (flourish).
Let's explore how we might further articulate AFSC - with so much education-for-the-people focus today - and World University and School, which is free, highest quality, open and people-to-people oriented.
