A couple months ago I was reading in the Miner on the way to town that it was international peace day and that there was a peace vigil in Kingman. We were done with most of our errands by the time the vigil started and we decided to join them. They had extra signs, I was waving a “HONK FOR PEACE” sign and a LOT of people honked.
It was great to meet Christine Meisenheimer and several other very interesting people including gardeners.
I had no idea that Kingman has peace activists and an “Occupy” movement, who would have thought! I wish we weren’t so far away.
Here is Christine Meisenheimer’s email with more info:
