vforp.jpgVillanovans for Peace is an anti-war student group on campus, for which I serve as faculty moderator.  We’re active both on and off campus.  For example, the last two years we’ve hosted the Pennsylvania AFSC  “Eyes Wide Shut” demonstration of combat boots representing every death of a Pennsylvania soldier in Iraq.  We sponsor speakers (e.g., Veterans against the Iraq War) and show peace-oriented movies and documentaries (e.g. The Ground Truth).  Last spring we held a successful Peace Awareness Day in the center of the campus and collected many signatures against the Iraq War.

Two weeks ago (September 15) a busload of us went to Washington, D.C., to demonstrate with tens of thousands of others against the Iraq War.  I went as the faculty advisor (along with my wife Fran), and you can see many of us in the picture above.
