Ashland Peace Vigil, One Year and 15 Weeks, April 29, 2008

Today we had three people standing on the corner. I missed the past two weeks as i was not in Ashland. Last week, one person showed up, the week before, I don't know. I also don't know the weather the past two weeks, but today was a mild calm 55 sunny degrees.

We all noticed that the horn honks and waves of approval were many. There was only one person who yelled his disapproval out his car window compared to the support we received and felt. We noticed that even the people who did not even look our way or seemed to be apathetic were less in number than the supporters.

We also know we stand for many people who could not be there or were not there standing for peace. My spouse, Barb, is in St. Paul, MN working these days. She attends two vigils each Wednesday. One at ATK, the large corporation that makes the depleted uranium weapons, and at the Lake Street Bridge across the Mississippi River in the Twin Cities. This one hour action has been going on for several years. Many folks work or can't make it or don't want to stand on a corner. They still want peace and maybe more have decided it's time to have peace. Time will tell.

Peace to All.
