    A beautiful moment just happened at Camp Casey I. There was a candle
light vigil honoring troops who have died in Iraq. The counter protesters
came across the street and joined the vigilers at Camp Casey, They shared
the flag and prayed together for the families on both sides who have lost
loved ones in the war. They are now singing and holding candles together.
This is a testament to the power of this movement ...

And couple announcements:

Dear Friends,

Do you feel the country tipping away from the war in Iraq? We have many to
thank for that - especially Cindy Sheehan.

But who will help us tip our country towards peace? Jonathan Schell!

We face a choice in America - between a republic based on democracy and
cooperation and an empire based on exclusive control of the world's wealth
enforced at nuclear gunpoint. WE CITIZENS will make this choice, and no one

Jonathan Schell has spent forty years writing about the rise of nonviolent,
democratic power and the fall of every empire of the 20th Century before
the will of the people. We are each a part of this history. FNVW exists to

better learn and play our roles!

You may have already heard of Eyes Wide Open, the widely acclaimed American
Friends Service Committee (AFSC) exhibition about the human cost of war. 
This powerful outdoor exhibit is coming to the Minneapolis/St. Paul area,
Sept. 30-Oct. 1, and I am among the many volunteers working to spread news
of the event as far into our Upper Midwest region as possible. The exhibit
is being generously hosted by the College of St. Catherine and will be
displayed outdoors at its St. Paul campus. In addition to the boots, we are
planning various related activities  speakers, ecumenical services, reading
of the names, etc.


For some of you, this may not be in your own backyard, but we wanted all
peace and justice groups in Minnesota and neighboring states to be aware of
the exhibit. It has already traveled to more than 60 U.S. cities since
January 2004 and each time, the local reception grows along with the number
of boots.  You may just want to make others aware of the event, or you may
have a group interested in joining us in St. Paul at the end of September. 
We are still in need of both volunteers and donations. We would love to see


A special page at <> outlines
more details about Eyes Wide Open at the College of St. Catherine,
including an online volunteer tool and sponsorship forms to download. For
those of you in the education arena, there is a related curriculum to
reference. Flyers and information sheets can also be downloaded from the
web site to help you promote Eyes Wide Open in your community.  We
sincerely appreciate all you can do to help us spread this AFSC message
about the human cost of war.


And thank you for all you do for peace.
