  2. Lovely. You should know, having lived war at close quarters. Thank you, AnnWright.

  3. I value your work. Because of your experience, your perspective is unassailable. Thank you for your continuing efforts toward a peaceful world.

    War has no sense, the resources we spend with weaponry, is the food we take from a child.

    If war was a solution, now we were living in a paradise.

  5. Was it Gandhi who famously said, ” An eye for an eye leaves both sides blind”? No matter. Non-violent opoosition to war prep(including the military expansion right here at Pohakuloa TA on Hawai’I island)is the highest civic action anyone would be proud of.
    Peace, Aloha & Imua!

  6. As a bicyclist in Sam’s Ride for Peace for the second year, and a two-year supporter of Roger Ehrlich’s Swords-to-Plowshares portable Belltower, as well as having just met the submerged Peace Boat the Phoenix of Hiroshima while sailing the Golden Rule above where she lies awaiting the chance to rise again like the mythological Phoenix, I salute your courage which includes Peace Boat missions to Palestine.

    Many Missions, many paths to peace and justice.
    Blessings

  7. I’m always reminded of General Smedley D. Butlers speech — “war is a racket”.
