Overpass Event

Filed under: Uncategorized — kbpeaceforum @ 6:44 pm

The OverPass event on Sunday, marking the 3rd Anniversary of the War in Iraq was a success.  About a dozen or so of us stood on the overpass above Highway 97.  Signs read “Three Years Too Many” and Bring ‘Em On Home” with the “On” “X’ed” out greeted travlers from the North and South.  Honks, Peace Signs, and friendly waves outnumbered single finger salutes.  Positive repsonses certianly equaled negative.  Three individuals stopped on theover pass to question our motives and intentions.  One asked why we did this when it would do no good.  He was of the protest supports the terroists mentality.  One quoted Romans 13 and said I was giving a bad witness.  The scripture addresses revolting against God chosen government.  He seemed confused between protesting policy that is “ungodly” and revolting against the government.

The activiism was enjoyed by all.  If you read this and were at South Sixth Street, post a reply!
