Trap Rock Peace Center

Yesterday was the first Sunday of May 2008, so starting at Noon we were there on the Green in Bethlehem, CT.
The sun came out from behind the clouds during the hour and we stayed talking for about forty minutes with someone who came by and stood with us for the first time.

Time flies when you talk about Peace and all the related issues; a wiser man than I once said, "Peace is much more than just the absense of war," or something like that...

I always intended to include a link to the Traprock Peace Center website, and I find it changed, but with a link to their "Archives." There is so much information available there that is hard to come by on your television.

Especially regarding so-called Depleted Uranium (The question was asked, as we stood talking by the side of the road, "Are you afraid of Nuclear War?" By using Depleted Uranium (DU), the United States of America may already be waging a Nuclear War).

Anyway, here's what I found this morning:

"November 5, 2007: This website is an archive of the former website,, which was created 10 years ago by Charles Jenks. It became one of the most popular grassroots peace sites in the US, and its content remains as an important resource on the antiwar movement, student activism, 'depleted' uranium and other topics. Jenks authored virtually all of its web pages and multimedia content (photographs, audio, video, and pdf files. As the author and registered owner of that site, his purpose here is to preserve an important slice of the history of the grassroots peace movement in the US over the past decade. He is maintaining this historical archive as a service to the greater peace movement, and to the many friends of Traprock Peace Center. Blogs have been consolidated and the calendar has been archived for security reasons; all other links remain the same, and virtually all blog content remains intact.
THIS SITE DOES NOT REFLECT THE CURRENT AND ONGOING WORK OF TRAPROCK PEACE CENTER, which has reorganized its board and moved to Greenfield, Mass. To contact Traprock Peace Center, call 413-773-7427 or email. We'll post a link to its new website when it goes online. Charles Jenks is posting new material to, a multimedia blog and resource center. You may contact him by email."

As a post script, I'll add a video I found on the new site:

And since that's Holly Near singing, I'll add this quote too:

“It is our apathy, fear, indifference, silence, and hopelessness that is a gift to those who wish to dominate. The greatest gift we can give ourselves and the world is to not let them have that silence.”
