We Share Our Message with Delaware Students
We were inspired when we heard more students like Lou get interested and share their feelings. We had a lot of that. Jacob told his story 6 times yesterday and, likewise, we played all of our hillybilly peace songs over and over. We talked about how the ride began and how Jacob's brother, Jordan, made the decision to resist the Afghan war after receiving his orders to deploy. We talked about how the Afghan Youth Peace Volunteers are struggling to share their message of peace in a world so easily accepting of violence. Not to mention how easy it would be for those youngsters to pick up a random Kalashnikov and join the violent anti-occupation movement. Instead, though, they choose peace.
