Members of Veterans For Peace in Evansville gathered today, the International Day of Peace, to honor humanity’s quest for peace—and to share a statement on “Climate Action for Peace” that sees an end to militarism as essential to a sustainable future. (Read the statement.)
Local member Larry Miller presented a viable young linden, a start from the original International World War Peace Tree in northern Vanderburgh County. Miller and VFP 104 are gifting the planting to the City of Evansville as a gesture of good will, symbolizing the belief that peace is possible when rooted in non-violence, justice, and respect for all people.
