Good piece, altogether.

But I tend to get suspicious about people who say, "I'm for peace, but please let's not say anything against this war we're waging." I'm not suspicious of them; but I am suspicious as to what their attitude may imply-- Something like "I want to have peace and feel peaceful regardless of what other people are going through"?

This could miss the point of how they're really thinking; I simply don't know. We don't need to judge any person feeling this way; but shouldn't we challenge the sentiment at work, take a closer look at whether that deserves respect?


Thanks, Forrest, for your comment. I didn't think to ask your question of Brent in the interview. Guess I was just impressed his friend would walk from New Castle, IN, to DC, for the cause. There must have been hard, lonely stretches in that journey (both physically and spiritually). Perhaps focusing the message kept her on course. Thanks, BTW, to all who traveled from QuakerQuaker this week to read this post. I'm trying to cast a wide net with my bloggings in I.T., but write periodically on Quakerism. I'd be particularly appreciative of feedback of a post I did on Quakers and debt. I've been thinking about refining it to submit to Friends Journal.
