January 2, 2011—“New Year’s Day is a perfect day to celebrate Peace on Earth,” said El Cajon resident Norrie Robbins.
Perhaps you were among the people passing by who honked car horns or displayed the two-finger peace symbol throughout the day, as Robbins shivered on a sunny but cold mid-winter afternoon to bring her message of peace to East County residents.»
“Peace. It sounds so much more mellifluous than War,” Robbins reflected, adding her view that “ War is a way to diffuse male hormones and reduce the burgeoning overpopulation of the Earth. Peace is a way to put smiles on faces of people who feel secure, happy, and productive.”
Robbins' father, a physicist, taught her that all systems operate with intertwined processes, some that cooperate (Peace), some that compete (War), and some that are neutral,” she recalled. “We have a lot of people beating the drums for competition, so it is nice to have some who are leading the cooperation team,” the local peace activist concluded.
