Second and third place tie Awards will be presented to authors from California, Massachusetts and Maryland by the West suburban Faith-based Peace Coalition. All of the essays are posted at: www.faithpeace.org and www.warisacrime.org.

Like most peace initiatives little press coverage is expected. Most people go through our educational system and never even learn the inconvenient truth that the U.S. Senate overwhelmingly outlawed war. But people who have a deep dedication to peace, here and around the world, will celebrate the day nations joined together to reject war as an instrument of national policy.
