"The year was 1970 and I had just returned from Vietnam. I settled in Berkeley, CA, which was a hotbed of protests at the time. My experiences in the war had made me antiwar as only those who have participated can understand. I wanted my small voice to be heard, so I joined an organization that was at the forefront of protests. The VVAW (Vietnam Veterans Against the War) filled that need with like-minded veterans.
There’s a reason we call each other brothers.
We had all seen the futility and waste of time, effort, cultures, and of course lives that war brings.
We were hated at the time by those who had initiated and prosecuted the war.
We were hated by the liberals who acted as if we were the ones running the war.
We were just pawns.
So joining the VVAW gave us purpose and hope for change. It gave us the acceptance from the left which we actually identified with. It gave us a voice louder than any individual could muster (though to be true, John Kerry was a force to be reckoned with). This picture is of the VVAW protest at the 1972 republican convention. It took another 3 years to end that war." Thank you to Ben Feliciano, WV, U.S.A, for sharing his story and his favourite protest photo with The Wild Word, as part of our special IN PROTEST series. http://thewildword.com/in-protest-editorial/

Today I personally choose to salute those who resist violence in all of its forms. Those who refuse to fight. All due respect to everyone. Today I stand with those courageous women and men who see PEACE as a higher calling and dedicate their lives to actualizing it.

Thanks to Karl Thideman for capturing one of my favorite moments of this past weekend - singing one of Jacob George's songs with my fellow #veterans as we marched down #NYC streets.
Chorus:
"A Warrior understands that we fight to make a stand
No matter the injustice we might see
And I'm telling you, that's nothing but the truth
I'll be the best Warrior I can be." #IVAW #VetsforPeace
