I was born just before the United States entered World War II, and I've been participating in peace walks and vigils since the war in Vietnam. This was one of the best organized and deeply felt. The participation of some wheelchair users was touching, as was the closeness that came so quickly among people who started out as strangers. Many of the past events I've attended consisted almost entirely of peace church members. Here I had conversations with Presbyterians, Lutherans, Catholics, Muslims, Baptists, and many others. I wish everyone in the nation could have experienced it as I did.
