Big tip of the hat to Peacechick Mary
Ava Lowery, the teenage peace activist that got media attention and death threats after starting a website called Peace Takes Courage and making an animation called WWJD? has a new animation out. Pamela had posted on that first video in May.
Peace Takes Courage is a project by Ava Lowery, a 15-year-old student and peace activist from Alabama. In mid-March 2005, she created her first animation. Since then she has made over 70 animations, many of them about the war in Iraq.
NEW VIDEO – Christmas at War
It’s one week before Christmas. 2,948 American families will be missing a family member this Christmas due to this immoral war in Iraq. According to a recent study it is estimated that around 650,000 Iraqis have also died since the war begin. This Christmas we need to all take time out of our busy holiday schedules to think about those who have been killed in the Iraq war. It is up to us to make sure that this coming year brings many changes to help get our country back on track. Christmas celebrates the birth of Jesus Christ – who taught love, compassion, understanding, and most of all PEACE. Let this holiday remind us that peace is a possible goal and that we have much work to do in order to achieve it.
It just amazes one to see that someone her age can be so tuned in. She goes as far to also put this post on her blog:
I’m sending out Christmas cards and I would love to send one to all of you. If you’d like me to send you one please send me an email with your mailing address. Merry Christmas!
Thank you so much Ava! You are a very special kind of person. Don’t ever change. We support you and love you for all that you do.
