  1. I am saddened that we failed to take a stand for ending a war that is costly in life and treasure and has lost any purpose. u00a0Our denomination is prophetic in so many ways; I would hope we could be prophetic for peace. u00a0That does not require that we all be pacifists; it simply asks that we hear the call of Martin Luther King in his great Riverside Sermon: “Now, it should be incandescently clear that no one who has any concern for the integrity and life of America today can ignore the present war.”u00a0u00a0

  2. If UU’s can’t take a firm stand against this war, what hope is there for the Congress to move from a war economy to a peace economy?u00a0 I will continue to protest this war and ask that the $$ for war come home.u00a0 Nancy Kain
