Peace march a good day in our hometown

Carol Hauter, Marice Doll, Dick Helmke & David Hauter

Dear Editor,We want to thank the organizers of the Peace March on Oct. 26. The turnout shows that there are great numbers of people that are looking for solutions, not war. Along Grand Avenue was a diverse group in age, ethnicity, and religion who marched out of concern for the welfare of the citizens of our country and the world. The gathering together in Glenwood Springs was inspiring and cannot be trivialized. Standing up and speaking out for peaceful solutions; that war, is not the answer, is not a trivial pursuit. The media has not yet recognized the growing numbers that don’t accept the misinformation being delivered by the politicians and the corporations seeking economic domination. This is not democracy for the people of the world. The people spoke out in our community, on main street and chanted “No blood for oil.” This is a national challenge, worthy of our citizens who are seeking to maintain the integrity and respect for all people and all nations. It was a good day in our hometown.Thank you,Carol Hauter, Marice Doll, Dick Helmke & David HauterGlenwood Springs
