Mary is a library manager for the Central Arkansas Library System.
For Mother’s Day 2022, we have collected thought from our Board members on what they learned from their mothers on Peacemaking. Here is what Mary had to say:
“From my mother and her mother I absorbed and learned what Peacemaking is. To speak the truth but kindly, ‘fight’ injustice, and be active in my community. My understanding of what community means has greatly expanded through the years. I first heard it used intentionally at the women’s college I attended and immediately realized the importance of this concept. I identify as an Arkansan, Citizen of the US, and a member of a faith community and work to bring more peace to our world. Deep in my heart I believe for almost every serious undertaking, I ponder what my mother and grandmother would do.”
