Local Peacenik Mothers Alert
Late notice as always, but...
This evening I'll be taking Iz and a picnic dinner to Mitche11 Park in Pa1o Alto, where we'll be part of local photographer Barbara B0issevain's effort to send a message of peace honoring mothers around the world who are suffering as a result of war.
Barbara (who is a friend of Iz's teacher) will be taking a panoramic photo of all the mothers (plus their children and friends) assembled at this event. There will also be live Brazilian music.
The following statement will be printed, along with the photo, in the local papers:
"In honor of this Mother's Day (May 14, 2006), the mothers gathered here today would like to honor mothers in Iraq, Darfur, and elsewhere in the world who are the victims of war and have lost children and loved ones due to the atrocities of war. You are not alone and we offer you our best wishes and prayers for peace."
The event is tonight at 6:30 at Mitche11 Park, 600 E. Meadow Drive. Don't forget to bring your picnic dinner, and to pass this on to anyone who might be interested. Hope to see you there.
