4. Establishing a system of faith. 5. Letting go of things like revenge and personal offense. 6. Letting go of tradition if it is unproductive. 7. Renewing your mind, body, and spirit on a daily basis. 8. Developing humility. 9. Developing a perspective of world around you that is not based in stereotypes. 10. A study of, and incorporation of positive virtues 11. Pursuing a full life no matter your current circumstances. Once you begin developing peace within yourself, that peace will spread outward to world around you. First, your friends, and family, then your community, then your enemies, and outward to world. This is true path of global peace; one person at a time finding peace within themselves. It is my belief that those who are most violent possess greatest capacity for peace and non-violence. It all starts by accepting challenge of examining yourself everyday and choosing peace over violence. I encourage you to look in mirror of your life and begin to put aside violence. Develop a new perspective towards friends, family, enemies, challengers, and world at large.

The ninth amendment: It's cool!!Written by Darrin F. Coe, MA
Continued from page 1
The constitution affords federal government right to regulate commerce between states; establish revenues and taxes; pay debts of country; and provide for common defense and general welfare of United States. Any rights not specifically enumerated as belonging to federal government belongs to state governments. I encourage every citizen to know content of their state and federal constitutions. It is incumbent upon citizens to know and protect their rights. It seems to me that federal and state governments will take away rights if we allow them to do so; sometimes in interests of “welfare” and sometimes in interests of “money”. Take time to care enough about our government and your rights as individuals; to get involved and be informed. The more you give more they’ll take and those in government have great love for uninformed.
