We salute Veterans for Peace, who just celebrated their
25th anniversary here. Founded in Maine by a handful of Vietnam vets
"bound by our experience and a real disdain for war," they now boast
5,000 men and women in 100 chapters
across the
country, and are still fighting against senseless wars, new ones now. We
love that one night they showed "The Good Fight," a terrific film about
the Abraham Lincoln Brigade and its tireless righteous warriors still going
strong, decades on. Hope lives.

"Persevering. It's not easy." - teacher, writer, VFP founder Doug Rawlings.
