June 24, 2006, World Peace Forum, Vancouver

I had a busy day yesteday at the World Peace Forum.

I was at the Amnesty Table up at UBC in the morning.

I hooked up with Don Wright at the Peace Walk, and walked with him for Amnesty.

We ,along with an estimated 10,000 people sick and tired of war and not going to take it anymore, meandered our way through downtown.

We ended up at Susnet Beach where we were met with the presence of a stage.

I saw a couple of notable people there.

In a surprise appearance, the beautiful, graceful Buffy Sainte Marie performed "Universal Soldier." She still has an incredible voice, that, when combined with that song, can move me deeply.

The courageous Cindy Sheehan also made an appearance.

All in all, it was a great day to be alive in Vancouver.
