Something came to me as I walked past the church of epiphany in Washington D.C. I had just viewed numerous monuments designed to memorialize our legions of war wounded, war dead and those that served. At the American History museum our war making past and present is codified as “The Price of Freedom”. A quarter of one whole floor is dedicated to making the case that all American wars, past and present, have been a necessity to preserve this great nation of ours.
On Monday, May 28 2012 San Diego Veterans for Peace set up Arlington West Memorial near the USS Midway along with multiple tents that were used to provide food and water to the large San Diego homeless population. It was a beautiful day and we were able to spread our message of peace to many people.
