In Search of the Grail: The Story of a Women’s Movement in Loveland, Ohio

Change things that seem impossible to change.

by David Miller

Loveland, Ohio – In 1940, an international women’s movement got on a boat. The last ship before Hitler invaded Holland. They arrived in America, “in the blink of an eye” in April of that year.

Loveland’s Holy Grail became a voice at the United Nations.

After watching the video below and in the spirit of Grailville’s past of venturing into the seemingly impossible, as editor of this journal, I have made the executive decision to go “everything do” with an attempt to inform the people of Loveland of the impending destruction and obliteration. artifacts of a great cultural event in our local history.

Grailville was the home of the National Grail movement in the United States; the symbolic heart of the movement.

Will we allow Grailville Farm to be plowed or will we choose new furrows planted in a way that continues to grow our future as a community?

If we lose these artifacts, it will be by choice and not that we didn’t know – or that we knew better.

City Historic Preservation and Planning Commission, City Tree and Environment Committee, City Planning and Zoning Commission, City Council and City Manager, Plan Committee Will the city’s director of global development, the city’s arts commission, and Drees Homes support or bulldozer indifference without acknowledgment of these artifacts?

Will they act out of ignorance or lack of understanding of enlightenment? Will our future have value? Will Loveland’s legacy hold significant value? The preservation of these artefacts can be an added value.

A choice for every resident – ​​Follow the Holy or Follow the Folly.

We will no longer be able to say: “I did not know”.

Of course, expressions of dismay regarding the impact of over 200 homes in Grailville and the resulting strain on municipal services, overcrowding of already inadequate roads and schools, etc., are legitimate, however, the destruction of these intrinsic artifacts expressed in this video. A quality life, whether for the individual, the collective community or our grandchildren, can be filled with the remnants of the culture that made it so rich.

This 2006 film by my friend Barbara Wolf, a Cincinnati filmmaker, for The US Grail, a secular movement, explores the journey of these women who seek to transform the world through personal appeal and community action.

What is our joint action today?

The Holy Grail in the US and Loveland is by no means dead, read more HERE and HERE.

Will we let a Kentucky homebuilder know that he proposes to plow beneath the footprints of this good soil and the artifacts of an international movement for peace, gentleness, justice and tranquility?

We all have faith.

Important artifacts, our seed crops, are about to be plowed.

Will our horizons be called by name to respect these artefacts?
