americans go home

This is what met me as I went onto the base to do laundry this afternoon.

Once a month or so, the Quakers set up in front of the base gates to protest our presence in their country. I believe it is more the military presence rather than the American presence--at least I like to think it is!!!! The sign used to say, "Quaker prayer meeting for peace." It now just says, "Quaker meeting for worship."

They are peaceful but nonetheless it is unnerving to turn into the base and see a group of people who are praying for us to leave!!!
