Great Report from Napa, CA Peace Vigil!

CNV Action-Napa, CA 9-21-14 (3)Written by Teresa Cahill in Napa

At first there was only the 6 usual people (out of the total of 8 “regulars”).We had three flags with peace signs and my husband a veteran of the Korean war had a flag that said “VETERANS FOR PEACE” with a large painted dove in the middle.

I brought a small table and had the Nuclear Resistor newsletters and handouts of a quote about nonviolence with a picture of Gandhi.  I made some small signs from my Campaign Nonviolence tee shirt and taped them to the table. Also I held a big sign with Campaign Nonviolence and on the bottom, End War, Poverty, and the Climate Crisis.

Our signs varied from, “War is Not The Answer” to CNV Action-Napa, CA 9-21-14 (4)Diplomacy Not Violence”. Then, 5 people from the Uniterian Universalist Church joined us and one woman held a sign in Spanish that said “Queremos La Paz Para Todo” “We Want Peace for Everyone”. Finally, a young man who happened to walk past us on his way home from work, stopped and held my flag and then helped us pack everything into our car. All together we were 12 and had many cars honking as they passed (hopefully, all in support).

I felt extremely positive about bringing the message that there is an alternative to what we now have in place and although the 5 extra people probably won’t be coming every month, we will still stand on the corner every month!CNV Action-Napa, CA 9-21-14 (1)

For Peace Now!
