Eagan Peace Group Enters Its 7th Year of Standing Vigil

Thursday, November 11th (coincidentally "Veterans Day") marks the 6- year
anniversary of the weekly peace vigil that takes place at the intersection
of Pilot Knob and Yankee Doodle Roads in Eagan, Minnesota. This Minnesota
peace vigil has gone on for six years through heat and snow, rain and
sleet, every Thursday afternoon for one hour (from 4:30 pm to 5:30 p.m.)
to the tune of "Honk for Peace" and other pro peace signs.

After all these years, Eagan Peace Vigil founders Greg and Sue Skog note
how "big government" and out of control wasteful spending, resulting in
massive debt locally and nationally were some of the major themes of the
recent elections. "But the fiscal problems will remain intractable with
over half of our nation's budget going to the Pentagon and then earmarked
to funding of the ongoing wars through borrowed money from China. It is
time to become fiscally responsible by ending the wars and occupations
launched by the Bush Administration without any clear exit strategy. Not
only do we need to bring our troops home but we also need to bring our war
dollars home as soon as possible to avoid further financial catastrophe."

Veterans Day is usually considered a time to honor those who gave up part,
and sometimes all, of their lives in service to our country.  Certainly we
need to ensure that that our country continues to care for its veterans,
many of whom have returned not only with serious physical wounds but also
mental ones in the form of alcoholism and PTSD. Along with that theme, we
must also not forget that the holiday was created in 1919 and originally
called "Armistice Day", not only a day to celebrate and honor the soldier,
but a solemn day to remember the "War to End All Wars".
[How about the "Peace to End All Peace"? Makes as much sense. -ed]

I hope many of you can participate in the Bush Foundation's info-gathering
project from Minnesota citizens on how to govern our state's budget. Last
night, I took a friend to one of the workshops in a St. Paul library to
give my input, and now I want every progressive voter to participate!

There are 20 more input sessions being conducted around the state besides

The project is being conducted by the Citizens League, and the money is

they strive to be nonpartisan in presenting information and conducting the
input session, and they performed well on that score.
