With all the attention given to politicians and pundits who were for the Iraq War but are now against it, people forget that there are some who never supported the war — or any war, for that matter. They’ve been out there holding signs and talking peace for years. And people are finally paying attention.
If you want to join the Intercommunity Justice and Peace Center in their effort to keep the option of peace on the table, join the monthly Peace Vigil near you. There are a bunch of them, check it out on the third Friday of every month (that's today) at 5:30 p.m. Locations on the jump page.
