The World's Largest Human Peace Sign!

Click on picture for larger version.

On February 8, 2003 at 8 AM, three friends and I used food color and chalk to mark the outlines of our giant (240-foot diameter) peace sign on the snow and the sidewalks of the diag at the University of Michigan. Four hours later, some 2500 peace marchers arrived to fill in the "World's Largest Human Peace Sign." We hired a pilot/photographer to take pictures from his plane, and the one above is the best. Two weeks before I had been in a huge anti-war march in Washington, and one week after there were big marches all over the world (I was in Lansing).

We were organized, we were committed, we were loud, we were right.

We were ignored.
