We set up our chin-up bar, too, but didn't have takers on it today. But, a number of students noticed the contrasts between our tables, looked at our materials and thought it was interesting that we were there together. I thought it was a good opportunity to encourage critical thinking about these important things -- war, peace, using nonviolent strategies instead of military force, the realities of military life and alternatives for college funding, etc.
We appreciated our conversations with students, teachers and the recruiters.
