A Simple Tribute to the Peacemakers

This photo has resonated with me for many years, since it was first published following a Vietnam War protest. It represented the very essence of the peace movement: non-violence in the face of overwhelming force in an effort to save the lives of the very people pointing the guns at the young woman.

It is, in my world, the pinnacle of bravery, sacrifice and the good and great heart of the American. I'm celebrating the lives of the peacemakers today, the people who desperately seek to avoid the wars that sacrifice our young and enrich the already obscenely wealthy.
