Margaret Hawthorn will speak on "Forgiveness as an Act of Self-Preservation" at the Henniker Peace Community's 30th annual Interfaith Peace Celebration.  The program will include music and readings from several faith traditions.  Margaret's daughter, Molly Hawthorn-MacDougall, was murdered in Henniker in 2010.  Since then, Margaret has insisted on responding to this awful act in a spirit of love.  

The Celebration is free and open to the public.  A potluck dinner in the parish hall will take place following the program.
