Remain Top Priority for Lawmakers
There has been ongoing debate over the issue of immigration and refugees for many months here in the U.S. and around the world.
And in June, there is a day dedicated to refugees -- to raise awareness to their needs and plight, realizing the horrors they have endured in leaving their homeland to find a safe place to live. It's a time to try to work together to ensure every refugee child gets an education, every family has a safe place to call home and every refugee can work or learn new skills to make a positive contribution to their community.
And now, thousands of refugees are also united by one flag. An orange and black flag inspired by the life vests most all had to wear in their search for a safer land to live. … [Continue reading...]

WOODSTOCK, NY—When the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) was signed into law in 1990, it was a milestone for people with disabilities. The past 25 years saw unprecedented progress as doors to employment and public access opened for the differently abled. The ADA requires that people not be barred from employment by large businesses and most government agencies on the basis of their disabilities. However, there is one door that is still tightly shut—the U.S. military is not required to comply with the ADA.
But one disabled veteran is out to change that. Marty Klein of Woodstock, NY, became blind while serving in the Air Force during the Vietnam era. Upon being classified as disabled, he received an honorable medical discharge and was sent home, with no other options offered by the … [Continue reading...]

Arlington West refers to the "temporary cemetery" itself, as well as Veterans for Peace's project of installing the temporary memorial. The name, Arlington West, was given to the memorial by WWII veteran Ted Berlin and reflects the name of the national cemetery of the United States, Arlington National Cemetery, a burial place of honor for fallen war heroes. Arlington National Cemetery is the location of the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier, and is also the final resting place for John F. Kennedy. Arlington West—in a manner similar to "real" cemeteries—is intended by the project organizers to be a place to mourn, reflect, contemplate, grieve, and meditate, to honor and acknowledge those who have lost their lives, and to reflect upon the costs of war.
The memorial in Santa Barbara, California, … [Continue reading...]
