The Ribbon of Tangible Hope: has inspired many peopole around the world to express their thoughts on panels of cloth of what they hold near and dear to their hearts. The process of creating Ribbons, joining Ribbon panels in events and exhibiting Ribbons calls attention to peace, disarmament and care of the enivronment and helps people find common ground about what they care about. Started by Justine Merritt in 1982, a grandmother and former school teacher, she is one woman who made a difference, inspiring people to think and act from her idea to surrouond the US Pentagon and the A-Bomb Memorial in Horoshima, in 1985 with Ribbons. The original theme of the Ribbon project “What I cannot bear to think of as lost forever in a nuclear war.”
