September 21st Peace Day?!
Some peacenik I am. I didn't even know there was an International Day of Peace, designated September 21st. When John Carroll student Viriginia Rivera interviewed me about Cleveland-area commemorations, I was caught off-guard. Shouldn't every day be a "peace day"? After all, holidays like Mother's Day were originally conceived as anti-war events. There is the cartoon written by a pacifist--tweaking the popular cartoon trying to get everyone to join a war effort--"Daddy, what did you do to end the war?"
