This is what the sky looked like moments after the March 13th Peace Vigil had ended. Just thought it a peaceful view and how ironic that we can see peace all around if we look for it.
We had some nice weather. Temperatures up into the 50's and a slight breeze. Thjat wind off of :alr Superior can be brutal even when Spring weather is here. But we sure appreciate those cool breezes off the big lake when it's 95 degrees and humiod in the middle of July and we got 77 Sunny Cool degrees blowing at us from the North.
The nice weather in combination to the newspaper article had people out in good numbers. We had 16 people out standing for Peace for this particular Tuesday Peace Vigil. We have never had mre than 11 before.
This is Mrs. Spadoman with her "Peace" flag.
One man stopped his car, got out and offered dry roasted peanuts to all of us as he to;ld us he just couldn't stay, but appreciated our efforts. Another woman who had business at the Post Office stopped by and spent a few moments of her busy schedule to just say that she agrees that the world needs Peace.
An elderly woman saw us and went home and made a sign and came back to joion us and spent the rest of the hour along with our group. Still another woman saw the group and pulkled over and stayed with us while others explained to her what the vigil was all about.
This is David. He is a regular attendee of the Peace Vigil.
All in all, a very good day on the Tuesday corner. We all were hopinh that something would happen thaty would make us not have to be there, but the end of it doesn't look like it's in sight. But we must remain vigilent.
Here are some pictures from Vigil Number eight.
This is Alyssa, Spadoman's daughter with her companion, Onawa, and one in the stroller.
Peace to all. Come join us sometime. Make an adventure out of it.
Here's the group right about 5:00 PM in Ashland on March 13th. Nice sunshine and good spirits on this corner in town.
