Root Words Veteran Food Security Podcast Episode Released

Peacemaking was the original intent of Veteran’s Day.  In 1926 congress passed the resolution to set aside the 11th of November honoring the Armistice of World War I with these words…

“Whereas it is fitting that the recurring anniversary of this date should be commemorated with thanksgiving and prayer and exercises designed to perpetuate peace through good will and mutual understanding between nations…”

For this episode I spoke with Richard Gallo, who practices goodwill, feeding and sheltering the Veteran community. It’s a wonderful example of active peace making.

This episode was produced by Stephen Abatiell

Special thanks to Richard Gallo, our Veteran community, and those who support them.
