Yesterday as I sat watching the peace march on the mall at Washington, D.C. I particularly enjoyed the comments of Dennis Kucinich. I supported Dennis for President in 2004 . He’s a long shot, but he’s a breath of fresh air. He’s not the same old tired rhetoric of the traditional liberals and the worn out conservatives. Dennis actually comes darned close to Franciscan values. He was an advocate for peace long before the recent movement. Dennis is an advocate for social justice and he gets high marks for that. Dennis is a co-sponsor of legislation that would establish a United States Department of Peace.
