Peace_panelpopplewellEthan Zuckerman has posted about the panel discussion on peace that took place yesterday. He does his usual thorough job of describing what transpired. Go have a read.

2003 Nobel Peace Prize winner Shirin Ebadi, who was scheduled to appear, could not get permission from the Iranian government to be in Louisville.

Amira Al Hussaini, who participated on the panel had this to say along with a few words from Georgia Popplewell, who also took the picture at the top of the page. Thanks Georgia for licensing it with creative commons!
