Work 4 Peace,Hold All Life Sacred,Eliminate Violence! This is my often neglected blog mostly about my travels across country in my mobile billboard truck as I attempt to engage in dialogue with people in hopes to wake us up and inspire action to change our country and communities and selves. And it is froth with my opinions, insights, analyses toward that end of holding all life sacred, dismantling the empire and eliminating violence while creating the society and life we want

Edwards AFB! Day 2 1st Stop

All photos by Meg Whitaker-Green! THANK YOU MEG!

We spent the nite at a little but clean motel on the way to Edwards AFB. We all shared rooms at it turned out to be way too cold to sleep on the bus or truck.

The morning dawned crisp and sunny, not too cold and off we went to Edwards! We entered a 10 mile road toward the base and stopped at that wall we now recognize as the marker to identify the bases

There was a large parking area there and PRESS was waiting! We were thrilled to be out in the middle of no where with press and NO police!

We got out all our banners and set up close to the road so we could greet traffic.

We took the sign greeting soldiers every day and spelled out the truth: not "Warriors supporting Warriors" but "Warriors supporting death, destruction, violence especially against children"


And WE are the REAL WARRIORS

We saw one police car being driven by a military person with the public police sitting in the driver's seat. The local press guy told us the military and local police cooperate with each other. I guess!

The press interviewed Cindy and spoke with several of us as well.



We chanted and sang, acknowledged several waves and a peace symbol - plus a few folks that were half-way there to peace!!!

Kathy, our press diva, has been handing out our press packet to any press who shows up and is collecting their contact info! (see 11/27 for press info).

Although traffic is light, we stay there for our hour, making our mark, being seen, being heard, being acknowledged.
