Greetings Members and supporters,

Hope all is well and everyone is re-energized for an active and productive fall. As you know the wars/occupations continue and Americans, Iraqis, Afghanis, Pakistanis are dying at an alarming rate. The honeymoon is over and we must again act to remind our President that these wars are unacceptable and that they must stop. Please join us at our next planning meeting on Tuesday, September 22 7:15PM at the Universalist Unitarian Congregation in Bellport. Some of the events we will be discussing is:

1. An action to mark the 8th anniversary of the invasion of Afghanistan.
2. Our “Arlington New York” event on October 17 and 18 at the Westbury Friends campus in conjunction with the World March for peace and Non violence.
3. Our poetry reading and peace concert (to include Left On Red, Lori Purdue, and the first public performance of the VFPLI musicians) on Saturday evening October 17 at the Friends Meeting Hall in Westbury.
4. The next in our continuing actions to ensure that the Army Experience Center not open on Long Island.

**A delegation of Long Islanders will be again going to Philadelphia to take part in an action to close the Army Experience Center in the Franklin Hills Mall. Two seats still remain on the van.

“I am tired and sick of war. Its glory is all moonshine. It is only those who have neither fired a shot nor heard the shrieks and groans of the wounded who cry aloud for blood, more vengeance, more desolation. War is hell.”
—William Tecumseh Sherman
