Kansas City Metro Area Stand for Peace Mothers Day 2008 May 11, 2008
On Mothers Day 2008, we peacefully assembled along the public sidewalk on 95th Street between Nieman and Quivira, in Overland Park from 3:00-4:00. Standing shoulder to shoulder, 500 mothers and others lined the sidewalk joined by Julia Ward Howe re-enactors, Mike Pruitt from Iraq Veterans Against the War, musician Emily Tummons and the Shawnee Mission Unitarian Universalist Church peace choir.
Be a part of Mothers Day as it was originally intended - a day to stand for peace.
