|The people in the Peace Studies Office bring the Kenapocomoco Coalition Newsnotes to you monthly during the academic year..

The things written in the newsletter do not necessarily reflect the thoughts, opinions, and beliefs of everyone in the Peace Studies office or Kenapocomoco Coalition. If you have something you would like to add to the newsletter, please contact Heidi Gross, the Peace Studies intern, head cook, and editor of the Kenapocomoco Newsnotes. email: firstname.lastname@example.org or call x5343.

We must believe that it is the darkest before the dawn of a beautiful new world. We will see it when we believe it.

Cost of War
Based on estimates from the Congressional Budget Office, this site features a sobering running total of your tax dollars at work in Iraq:
Military Families Speak Out
Military Families Speak Out is an organization of people who are opposed to war in Iraq and who have relatives or loved ones in the military. We were formed in November of 2002 and have contacts with military families throughout the United States, and in other countries around the world.
BRING THEM HOME NOW! is a campaign of military families, veterans, active duty personnel, reservists and others opposed to the ongoing war in Iraq and galvanized to action by George W. Bush's inane and reckless challenge to armed Iraqis resisting occupation to "Bring 'em on."
Harper's Index from Harpers Magazine (March 2004):
"They can't show the carrier footage with him in front of 'Mission Accomplished' -- it just looked stupid. Now I think they can't do 9/11. The only thing they're going to be able to do is ads of him clearing brush." --Al Franken on President Bush's television ads, during Franken's premiere broadcast on Air America Radio
