Women in Black, Against War

Women in Black, nyc Photo by myself at 42nd Street and Fifth Avenue.

A peaceful protest held on the steps of the main branch of the New York Public Library was held last week.

A small group of ladies held up a sign that read 'Women in Black Against War'. They handed out leaflets and stood quietly, a calm testament of their convictions. Meanwhile, the rush hour crowds streamed by.

Women in Black is un-related to the movie, Men in Black. Their group includes women from all over the world, who hold similar peaceful vigils in public areas.

For more about Women in Black, including a history of their vigils worldwide, check out their website, here.

Apologies for skipping yet another day, yesterday. Mark, Rupert and I have been having much too much fun this summer.

We spent the day with friends at their house, bbq-ing in Long Island. Ex-New Yorkers with an 18-month old, they had moved in favor of more space and a yard. They both commute to work in Manhattan by train.

A nice idea, but I am not sure this will help to end the wars.
