Why we still vigil
Letters to Editors
On Jan 31, we
hosted a panel presentation about the
risks of nuclear war. At least 80 people listened to and
questioned three speakers:
-Harvard professor Elaine Scarry updated facts, and noted that the
presence of nuclear arms undermines constitutional rights.
-Washington Post writer, Dan Zac, highlighted the continuing history
of resisting nuclear weapons, especially by the third speaker.
-Sister Megan Rice reminisced about her protests and incarceration,
and introduced the idea of civil obedience:
that the law that takes care of every one is what to obey.
