Freeway Bloggers For Peace

Bloggers are very vocal about ending the war and establishing peace. A number within our blogging circle are physically active as well.

I am sure that everyone who visits this blog and Roc Rebel Granny is well aware of Granny Ann's weekly vigils, in which the girls often participate.

Spadoman also hold vigils every Tuesday in his home town and his group is growing. I don't have his permission to post any of his photos but visit his Peace blog at http://jspado1.blogspot.com and check out his Tuesday's posts.

Marty On The Homefront is also very involved in peace activism and veterans' issues. She participated in the Memorial in Pasadena, Texas, helped set up the 3,000+ flags for each casualty in the war. See second post below, "Our Marty On The Homefront..." and took one of the photos posted. Also, check out her two posts and photos at http://martyonthehomefront.blogspot.com

She is also involved in Freeway Blogging For Peace. See photos below.

I am very proud of our blogger friends and support them 100% in spirit even though I can't join them. But I can and do set out little green soldiers, the Kommandos.

email from Marty On The Home Front:
Here is an interview with KPFTs Renee Feltz with a few of those involved with the Memorial in Pasadena and some of the residents who came out.

And here are some pictures of us on 59...we were on the Dunlavy bridge. These pictures were taken before I arrived. I couldn't get there until after 6pm so our "Military Families Speak Out Banner" isn't there yet. Shoot! And I, being in a rush, forgot to take my camera!

If I get my hands on some more pictures I'll send them your way.

Marty
