Liza Van Peski is walking from Belfast, Maine, to Washington, D.C., to demonstrate her personal commitment to peace?and to demonstrate that our personal choices have an effect on the world. ?Follow your own heart to your own creative action, with friends or alone,? Peski says on her web site, PeaceAfoot.com. ?Know that each one of us can make a difference.? Peski?s one-woman protest has been successful at raising awareness; her story has been picked up by at least nine different news outlets. In her online journal, she recounts her experiences with people stopping to talk or yell about the anti-war message that she sports on her backpack. When faced with people spouting pro-war rhetoric, Peski replies, ?Wishing soldiers were not in harms way is supporting them.? ?Nick Garafola
