As a veteran myself those are my kind of people!

As a preschool teacher, they're my kind of people too. I have devoted my life to telling little kids they don't have to push or hit, they can use their words. Then the grown-ups fuck up everything.

Look at all of those Real Men.

Makes you want to run right out there and join them, doesn't it?

HI TRISH-

This 'Veterans For Peace' video has touched me deeply, more than anything else has this Christmas season. I am humbled in the presence of these amazing men and women standing united and peacefully against war and doing all they can to keep hope alive, seen and heard. I am moved and humbled to tears.

thanks SO much for posting this
Love Gail
peace and hope for us all

Veterans have been there, done that and know war's true nature and cost. The most effective peace activists I ever knew were a WW2 vet who served in the air force and another guy who didn't even pass WW2 basic training because he refused to stick a bayonet into the straw dummy. He served as a conscientious objector in the medical corps.

Echos of Vietnam...as well it should be. And we need more echoes. Good post Tricia, it gives me hope as well.

As always, too little too late. Where were these guys Before the killing started?

Sorry Trish. A great post and badly needed. It just pisses me off that this sort of thing only happens after the fact and only after the war is no longer entertaining.

It's nice to know I'm not the only veteran who thinks war is crazy.
