The highest accomplishment of Villanova alumnus Admiral William Fallon was his appointment to Head of U.S. Central Command, whereby he assumed full responsibility for the conduct of the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan. By honoring Admiral Fallon in this manner, Villanova would be, and would be seen publicly to be, condoning war and particularly the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan. This is hardly Christian behavior, and so we organized a graduation demonstration to make our peaceable feelings known. We distributed flyers as people arrived for graduation, and at its conclusion, a group of us paraded out holding the Villanovans For Peace banner. We had previously spoken with the University President in his office, expressing our dismay about this choice and our intention to hold a demonstration at graduation (2008).

Peace Dove     There is no WAY to peace. Peace IS the way.
