THOUGHT FOR THE WEEK
November 9-15, 2018
In honor of the upcoming 150th anniversary of the birth of Mohandus Gandhi (1869-1948), we quote from the 10/22/2018 New Yorker:
'democratic politics.."must learn how to cultivate the inner world of human beings, equipping each citizen to contend against the passion for domination and to accept the reality, and the equality, of others."
(Although the Vigil will soon go on winter hiatus, we will continue to inspire our walkers and supporters with a weekly thought. Anyone who wishes to contribute a thought, may email it to: email@example.com )
Concord Peace Vigil Suspended for Winter
Since 1991, members of the Concord Peace Vigil have held a banner and walked in Monument Square around the flagpole. The banner says “We walk with all who suffer because of war.” We met one Friday a month from 8 to 9 am over the years 1991 through 2001. After the start of the US Government war in Afghanistan in late 2001, Vigil members decided to meet every week, weather permitting, still on Fridays from 8 to 9 am, and have continued to the present time. We are not a club and welcome any who wish to join us, even for a short time. We appreciate the positive messages many of you have signaled as you drive by.
Due to our small numbers and aging personnel, we have decided to suspend our vigil during the late autumn and winter months. The last vigil in 2018 will occur on November 16. We expect to resume on March 29, 2019.
