Catholic Workers, peace activists, Notre Dame de Namur University (Belmont, CA) students and faculty, and individuals for peace of all ages gathered for the Pacific Life Community’s vigil for peace outside of Lockheed Martin in Sunnyvale, California. The group of 16 gathered and shared Denise Levertov’s poem “Making Peace”. The group then held vigil for an hour with various banners and signs calling for the transformation of Lockheed Martin and our society as a whole to do away with violence.
