Last Friday Protest
23 Feb 07
Gold Star Mother Celeste Zappala (Her son, Sgt Sherwood Baker, perished in Iraq 26Apr04), holds a flag and a sign asking motorists to honk and protest the Iraq War. Behind her is a member of Veterans For Peace Chapter 31.
Bill Perry here does the
designing and writing for Veterans For Peace #144 (I do the actual
web composition). There are some legal wrangles over our exact
status, so we officially refer to ourselves at the Delaware Valley
Veterans for America. We also do the site Arlington
(Combination of Arlington Cemetery and where it was placed, just
opposite the Liberty Bell).
The Assistant Minister for FUMCOG, the First United Methodist
Church Of Germantown, David Eckert. Celeste & I are both
members, so the Last Friday protest had four peace groups
represented. We also had Brandywine Peace Community for our
last protest there.
As one can see by my eyes, I was badly in need of a nap here. It was a blast anyway.
