<p>HFI would like to promote individual achievement & social cooperation in accord with nature. To do this, we will use clear intentions, a calm attitude, focus, and harmony. We will explore the inner workings of life in hope of discovering universal truths. To fulfill our obligation to society, we wish to work toward defending the weak, protecting the environment, useful education, eliminating poverty, and implementing universal healthcare as a means to peace. PRINCIPLES: 1) We want to govern ourselves, not others. 2) We want to work for unity instead of competition. 3) We want to be open and promote general participation and reject secrecy, racism, sexism, homophobia, and other discriminatory practices. 4) We strive for simplicity and moderation.</p><p>In this issue: Adjusting to life in Chicago after being in stagnation and finding comfort in stability, thoughts on relationships and marriage, neighbors and feeling connections to the grief of others in the city, removing attachments to possessions, worries about being misunderstood and adhering to your own mission statement to avoid it.<br /></p>

<p>"Sometimes a disquieting idea, for at its core, an alternative signals difference: a state some may dustrust, others tolerate, still others, embrace. Fortunately, divergent views remain energetically alive, experience brings hope, exhilerating no matter what the outcome. In this anthology on less traditional and predictable lifepaths, the intensity, humor and spirit of these writing actually transcends differences, evidence of the strength found in exploring less travelled roads."</p><p>Contributors, cont'd: Mary Damon Peltier, Shirley Powers, Rita Reinert, Ellen Rosen, P.

The Redmoon Dramagirls use art and performance to celebrate middle school girls. We believe that performing powerful actions (such as stitlt-walking, drumming, and acting) creates powerful girls. Through supportive relationships, safe environments, challenging training, and public performance, the proram offers a safe environment for girls to investigate and create original works of theater that express the truth of their lives.<br />
