  • There is more than one wall like this at the Bangor International Airport, covered with stickers from the returning troops.
    The returning service people are met by their families, and also by volunteer greeters.
    The stickers resemble snowflakes and each one represents a larger group of people.

    There is a group in town that gathers on Sunday’s to protest, first the Iraq war, and now the war in Afghanistan.
    Despite aversion to fighting and armed conflict, wars are fought.
    War is fought by and for other people and war is happening right now.
    So much of the world, goes on without our consent,
    Lifetimes are lived without our knowing.
