this year's version of the palm sunday peace parade (which has been happening in pasadena since the start of the iraq war - 8 years ago!) was quite possibly the largest and most interesting of all. those in attendance had created large peace doves, hundreds of posters and banners, as well as noisemakers of all kinds. we were privilidged to hear from james loney (the peace activist, not the dodgers firstbasemen) who shared about his experience as a non-violent peacemaker in iraq. it was an incredible and meaningful event and made me proud to be a participant, and proud to live in a city where something like this can take place.
update: photos that a friend of mine took can be found right here.
