Iraq War Protests

It is encouraging to see antiwar protests now related to the possibility of new war in the Middle East.

I have an indelible memory of a group of young people, standing in silence, each holding a sign with the name, hometown, age and date of death of a soldier from Indiana who had been killed in the Iraq war. It was a sacred time when they gathered and stood. The audience stood back, also in silence, facing them. (downtown Indianapolis, 2012)

Here are some other photos from that day, many of which include War is Not the Answer signs from the Friends Committee on National Legislation (FCNL)
