Friday Peace Vigil, Casa Grande, AZ, and surrounding area:

Friday, March 22, 2013
4:00 p.m. to 5:00 p.m.
E. Florence Blvd. & N. Trekell Rd.

Peace Vigils are held every Friday from 4:00 to 5:00 p.m. in Casa Grande from mid-December to mid-April. Come and stand for Peace! Bring a sign or a sign can be provided - and bring another peace activist. The more the merrier! Call Debbie Jordan (520-494-0437) or Tony Fasline (520-426-0070) for details.



Last week, I was finally able to join Tony for his Friday afternoon vigil, for the first time all winter, along with my ever-faithful chauffeur and partner, Jim. Even better, we were doubly blessed that Laura McCoy was able to join us as well.

Back in fall 2011, Laura and her identical twin sister, Leta Hughes, were the sole local ‘occupiers’ representing the ‘Occupy Wall Street’ movement in our fair city of Casa Grande. Despite the numbers of huge demonstrations around the country, the editors of USA Today considered the sisters’ determination so special that they reprinted an article Melissa St. Aude wrote about them for the Casa Grande Dispatch. Sadly, Leta has since passed on, but with my help, Tony recently connected with Laura. Now he brings her out to the vigils whenever she’s up to it.

Jim took advantage of the event to snap the following pictures, but the middle one is the only one in which all three of us were caught behaving at the same time. You can see we were definitely having a good time doing good work for the future of the planet and the hope for a life of prosperity and peace for all people around the globe.

Join me in a vow to use our blessings, skills, and talents to build a society without poverty or war in which everyone is able to enjoy at least the basic benefits of prosperity and peace.

Meanwhile, send out your positive thoughts and, for those who are believers, prayers for all the suffering souls all around the world!
