By Joe Goode with Pax Christi St. Jude, Atlanta, GA

Five members of our Pax Christi Group joined with five members of the Georgia Peace and Justice Coalition at the very busy intersection of Ponce de Leon Avenue where Briarcliff and Moreland Ave. intersect. We gathered during peak traffic from 8-9:30 am on September 21, International Day of Peace to witness for an end to war and violence.and those causes that often cause violence such as poverty and racism. The members of the GP&J Coalition have been offering public witness in the area, weekly for several years and alternate their witness from peak morning to peak afternoon traffic  during changes of the Season. It was nice for us to meet these like-minded new friends who promote peace with justice and nonviolence. The high point for us  was that we also received affirmation from the many commuters, who gave a thumbs-up to our signs or a toot from their horns as they passed by.

On the prior weekend of Sept,17-18, two other members of our PCSJ group, honored their commitment to CNV by attending an Alternative to Violence Training offered by the Alternative to Violence Project at Kennesaw State University. From their reactions it was a resounding success.  Our co-leader, Maggie, came away from it with much enthusiasm for more trainings to be encouraged and hopefully offered in the near future.
