The year 2010 marks an amazing passage of time for PSALM/ WVCBL (Proud Students Against Landmines and Cluster Bombs and the West Virginia Campaign to Ban Landmines and Cluster Bombs) commemorated the 11th Anniversary of the Mine Ban Treaty and the 30th Ratification of the Cluster Munitions Treaty. PSALM students released balloons to raise awareness about landmines and cluster munitions with messages that read, “A LANDMINE AND CLUSTER BOMB FREE WORLD IS POSSIBLE”. We also celebrated the eleventh year anniversary of our founding by an amazing group of art students who wondered, “How can we make a difference in the world today?” The quote by Margaret Mead, “Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world, indeed, it is the only thing that ever has” really rings true of the many people in the world that work for peace and justice.
We want to thank ALL OF YOU, our mentors and role models in the efforts to ban landmines and cluster munitions. You have inspired our students to use their talent and energy to make the world safer for children everywhere! YOU make our mission POSSIBLE!
