Remembering the Dead and Declaring Peace in Brooklyn

Waiting to start

Brooklyn Parents for Peace sponsored a march (passed Senator Schumer's house) and candlelight vigil in Brooklyn Sunday night, Sept. 24th, as part of the exciting Declaration of Peace Campaign. Click the title link for the general website, but also read the statement read at the vigil and the follow-up press release. You can also check out some of the pictures I took at my site, I carried the name of Spc. Roger G. Ling from Dougleston -- and heard the name of someone who could be a distant relative, Jacob Pfister from Buffalo. (From his picture I found on the web, he LOOKED like family -- reminding me of my Uncle John Pfister who, landing on Utah Beach, survived D-Day -- bless him, now 88 years old.) I felt like crying. But action is better, and I thank God for people speaking out against the occupation which has caused the deaths of thousands of Americans and tens of thousands of Iraqis.

The Declaration of Peace Campaign continues and activists took over the Senate Hart Office Building on Tuesday -- documented at -- how wonderful seeing people moving beyond their comfort zone and enjoying it! Check out more of the activities at So much to do, but we all must do what we can. Join us. Please.

Peace hugs,
