In order to be a peacemaker, one must be completely in a position of neutrality: one must be in a position of listening to both sides. Both sides seem to be using Democracy as a way to peace.
Hereditary Chief Phil Lane Jr., a member of the Ihanktonwan and Chickasaw, shares his historical perspective of the current War between the United States and Russia and their Allies, beginning with his meeting with the Russians in East Berlin after the Cuban Missle Crises in October 1962. This presentation includes an update on the Russian Poseidon Nuclear Torpedoes (Underwater Drones), with a range of more than 6200 miles, that are deployed within striking distance of West Coast US Cities, and the Zircon Hypersonic Cruise Missle that have now been deployed to the Atlantic, within range of Eastern US cities. All the information cited regarding the Poseidon and Zircon Weapons is available on Google and YouTube if you want to independently investigate these issues.

As well LauraSa Pele Lafoia Ava-Tesimale, One Global Family Alliances, and Peace Sundays shared her recent personal four-month experience in war zones of Ukraine and surrounding countries.
