On Sunday, December 21 in Columbus Ohio, it was a mere 9 degrees out and the wind was blowing at enough of a clip to shove the wind chill below zero. And yet five hardy souls stood at the corner of 15th Avenue and High Street as they have every week for five long years of war and even on before that. Their messages are straightforward in discouraging the American exercise of war. These wars stretch on, and as these Buckeyes stand on the corner in the cold, cars honk in chilly appreciation. The lack of a national anti-war movement makes this local action even more notable. This is the picture of perseverance.
