Mattie J.T. Stepanek Peace Day (And Happy Birthday!)

I hold a special place of peace inside the music of our heart for Mattie J. T. Stepanek.

Today is Mattie J. T. Stepanek’s birthday. Mattie and my late Mother are celebrating the same birthday July 17th in Heaven. Anyone who knew my Mother understood her peaceful soul. My son’s name is Matt and the first letter of all of our last names is J. 🙂 This represents some of the bond I share with the peaceful, loving soul, Mattie J. T. Stepanek.

I became aware today that Maryland Senators, Barbara Mikulski and Ben Cardin will be introducing a resolution today (July 17 – Mattie’s birthday) for Mattie J.T. Stepanek Peace Day.

I urge you to help make this Day of Peace for Angel Mattie a reality. What you can do to support this:

1) One minute for Peace:
Continue to encourage people to sign the petition (sign here:

2) Five minutes for Peace:
Download our Ready-to-Sign letter (here: ) and send it to your state representatives, encouraging them to sign the proposed peace day legislation. You may also send the letters to Mattie’s Foundation, and we will forward them for you.
Finding e-mail or postal addresses for your representatives is easy using these links –
• Find your state Senators:
• Find your state Congressional representatives:

One person can make a difference, together, we can create change.
Please, keep up the momentum. Let’s “Make Peace the News!”

Thank you!

There will also be a Peace Gathering taking place in Mattie’s Park on Saturday.

Happy Birthday, Mattie —
