"Hello, Sisters from across the world! I offer you my greeting from a small town in Britain. I am so happy to see that you have sent a "Peace Tapestry" to the ladies of Israel and Palestine - it is so wonderful that women can find out their similarities, instead of doing that "male thing" of stressing their differences! How wonderful it is that we women can still be Peace-makers - God bless all of you, wherever you are, for the good work that you do."       With love,  Sylvia, in England.
