Forty-Two Peacemakers Arrested in DC

by Matt Black

Peacemaking is not a fair weather activity.

Last year, at the first Christian Peace Witness for Iraq, I was one of the 222 who were arrested in front of the White House. We had moved through snow throughout the day and struggled in the bitter cold late in the evening until we were arrested.

This year, it was the rain.
