A lovely book of poetry written by peace activist ustine Merritt who mobilized people around the world to resist the building of nuclear arms. "Crowded with color and compelling imagery … sometimes joyfully exuberant, Merritt's poems are a wake-up call," says Virginia Simmons, SFCC, from The Chronicle of Catholic Life. This is a poignant book of poetry written by a remarkable woman who dreamed into existence The Ribbon event on the 40th anniversary of Hiroshima which managed to bring 27,000 hand-crafted symbols of peace from many nations to embrace ten miles of metropolitan Washington, DC. Her haunting poetry records her soul's journey from atheism to Christianity, from existential despair, on her path to peace-work and her expressions of faith. A mother and a grandmother, she has taught people around the world that everyone can make a difference and that living a life with no war is possible. Hardcover, 192 pp.

"Justine's poetry is both deeply spiritual and extremely practical. Her artistry with words parallels her gift of embroidery. Both weave a tapestry not to be missed," says Joan Pope, director of Peace with Justice for the Women of the Evangelical Lutheran Church. And Jim Laurie of the Samaritan Institute in Denver adds, "Reading these poems from Justine's life journey calls forth great thanksgiving and examination. Powerful, wonderful, difficult images. Early I am moved into dialogue." Diana March of the Theosophical Publishing House says, "The Journey awaekens eyes to seeing, ears to hearing and soul to understanding. Mindful and relevant, Justine's poetry--like her life--informs, inspires and encourages compassionate action."

Born in the Midwest, Justine Merritt's journey has held a variety of life-styles: suburban wife and mother, member of a commune, salad and pastry cook in a Chciago restaurant and, always, a teacher and a poet. Even on a trek through 15 African nations, she wrote poetry. In 1982 her peace poems were part of the remarkable grass-roots endeavor that resulted in 17 miles of The Ribbon embracing the Pentagon, the White Hosue and the Capitol on August 4, 1985. Since then she has been a Resident of the Institute for Cultural and Ecumenical Research in Collegeville, MN, traveled extensively and now resides in Grand Junction, CO.
