My world changed completely since 9/11.
My heart ached as I watched my country devolve into a war monger — innocent people killed, soldiers exploited, veterans abandoned, domestic programs eliminated, all in the name of imperialism disguised as patriotism.
Communities everywhere were suffering. I couldn't stand idly by. So I enlisted. I left my career and enlisted in the Peace Movement. I began volunteering full-time for justice, and eventually the Las Vegas Peace & Justice Center was born.
