It is that time again--another opportunity for you to participate in a Global Day of Listening!

Every month people around the world listen together to the ordinary people living in war-torn countries. It a way of letting them know that someone is listening; that someone is listening to whatever it is they want to share.

We began meeting these 'ordinary people' through the Afghan Youth Peace Volunteers, and then met others.

Be a part of the conversation!
