Treading the Peace Path

It was a beautiful day for a demonstration and hundreds of people turned out this September 11 to pay homage to those who died in the attacks two years ago and those who died in Iraq.  The 12 miles of Charles Street from the inner harbor to the beltway was the scene of this inspiring event as people young and old, progressive and conservative, lined the sidewalks silently holding mainly home-made signs calling for an end to war and calling for peace.  People stood vigil in their neighborhood, outside their school and workplaces.  Some stood alone, but most stood in small groups with their friends and neighbors.  It was evening drive time and Charles Street seemed more congested than usual.  Despite the traffic, many drivers blew their horns and waved encouragement to the demonstrators. 
This was the second year in a row that Baltimoreans formed this "peace path." It was organized by Women in Black a nonviolent group with a nonhierarchical organization and roots in an international network of women peace activists.

IMC reporters travelled the peace path from the Inner Harbor to the beltway. The following pages review some of the people we spoke with.
