AZDOP Campaign meeting on the Phoenix Lights and peace, Tuesday, March 3

February 28, 11:31 PM

First, a disclaimer: I’m a peace person and my husband, Jim, is a UFO enthusiast. You might call that a mixed marriage, but you’d be wrong. In fact, the topic at the next meeting of the Arizona Department of Peace Campaign will be The Phoenix Lights and Peace.

Surprised? Most people think UFO hunters are looking for little green men to capture and study, like zoo animals or lab specimens. But if intelligent beings have conquered long-distance space flight, don’t they deserve respect, as well as the kindness even the least creatures on our planet deserve? The nascent discipline of exopolitics involves not only how much the government knows about this issue, but how to establish peaceful relations with an alien race when contact is made.

I jumped into the discussion a couple of years ago when I wrote that we have no business leaving this planet when we don’t yet know how to behave right here at home. This column became the last section of my book, The World I Imagine: A creative manual for ending poverty and building peace.

Obviously, any discussion of the Phoenix Lights should be very interesting. Doors open at 6:30 p.m., and the AZ DOP Campaign meeting begins at 7:00 p.m. on Tuesday, March 3, in the Tekakwitha room, in the back of the campus at The CASA, Franciscan Renewal Center, 5802 East Lincoln Drive, Scottsdale, AZ 85253.

The speaker will be Dr. Lynne Kitei, M.D., a medical doctor, author, and director of the award-winning documentary "The Phoenix Lights."

On March 13, 1997, thousands of witnesses in Arizona saw an enormous craft in the night sky. What was it? Where did it come from? What did former Governor Fife Symington see? What does former astronaut and moon walker Dr. Edgar Mitchell believe? Dr. Lynne has been investigating this incident with top experts in research, academia, government, military.

If you miss this meeting, you can catch "The Phoenix Lights" on March 15 at Harkins Shea Theatre, 7354 East Shea Boulevard (east of Scottsdale Road), Scottsdale. There will be three showings of the documentary at 1:00 p.m., 4:00 p.m., and 7:00 p.m. Dr. Lynne will speak at each showing.

You might also want to watch the short video on this page of John Podesta, President Obama's Transition Team Co-Chair and President Clinton's Chief of Staff, speaking about the need for more openness on data the government has on UFOs. Jim and I couldn’t agree more.
