Peace, justice, and nonviolence are being discussed this 4th of July holiday.
The PAXi Peace Index for today, July 4, 2015 is:
You can learn more about the PAXi Peace Index in our original post: Peace Index Intro
Two stories in the news about ways to further the peace are: 1. A story on Public Radio International about how American police can learn from English police who use weapons less (umm….okay, a little ironic for Independence Day!) and 2. A story about schools sharing lessons about peace and justice from the Ferguson community.
Excerpts and links to those stories at the readmore: Continue reading Happy 4th of July: PAXi Peace Index is 850
Kimberly and Ian Wilder are currently working on their second eBook. It should be out within the next couple of weeks. This new book is high on activism, with lots of great photos.
As for the PAXi/Peace Index…
Kimberly has been lax in publishing the daily PAXi/Peace Index numbers. Though, most days, the raw data has been gathered.

In trying to uncover why PAXi is so high on certain days, there is some guesswork involved. Though, we can also search the same indicators that got us to the PAXi score, and see what some of the stories and/or content is about.
So, here are some goings on in the universe of peace and nonviolence, which may have led to today’s impressive amount of discussion about peace, nonviolence, and antiwar sentiment: Continue reading US Daily Peace Index reaches new high on 8/29/2012

The PAXi number is designed to describe the amount of energy and discussion devoted to peace and nonviolence in The United States each day.
We wanted to share some observations made while observing this index for the last couple of weeks. Continue reading PAXi Notes for Monday, July 30, 2012: Peace, Numbers, and the Olympics
