Peace Through Pie

Darkness cannot drive out darkness; only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate; only love can do that.
-Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. 
Peace Through Pie

I've always wanted to be a mover and a shaker. The kind of person who gets out in the world and accomplishes, who fights for peace and justice and beauty and love. 

I think most people want to move and shake and fight for those things. 

About a year ago, an incredible woman named Luanne Stovall contacted me about a nonprofit organization she created called Peace Through Pie, which joyously celebrates Martin Luther Jr. Day with pie socials. People cook with love, but in particular people bake with love. Pie = love. 
There is something magical about pie. Pie is a uniter, a shared experience, an instant community, because everyone gets a slice. The goal of Peace Through Pie is to  create a more beautific, loving and peaceful society through this shared pie experience. 

So become a pie-o-neer for peace. Host a pie social of your own. Take a pie to work. Or the grocery store. Share, talk, make friends, spread the love. Become a mover and a shaker, and fight for peace with every bite.

Finally, I want to invite you to the
