Peace in the East

Taking a break from the cold (-20 without windchills this morning) to show the Peace in the East event that happened a little while ago at the university. The Islamic and Jewish student groups put on several displays and fashion shows, and here the belly dancer that is in the other local events was teaching people to do it. There weren't many people sadly, but like the other events, i only found out about it randomly. Some of the students were walking around the student center before telling people to come and have fun, but turn out was still pretty light. I'm still impressed that such a small university town (12,000 people or so) has events like this and Unity in the Community, where a city i lived in that was larger previously didn't. Still, i wish there was a better way to get the word out about these things.
