On Friday 9/25, organizers gathered for a silent prayer vigil at the entrance to Kirkland Air Force Base in Albuquerque, NM for the Campaign Nonviolence Week of Actions.
Kirkland Air Force Base’s website states: “The mission of the 377th Air Base Wing is to execute nuclear, readiness, and support operations for American air power.” In February 1970 Dorothy Day wrote: “I am convinced that prayer and austerity, prayer and self sacrifice, prayer and fasting, prayer, vigils, and marches are the indispensable means. And love. All these means are useless unless animated by love. “Love your enemies.’ That is the hardest saying of all.”
