We always appreciate students discussing the issues that are raised at the table -- such as how militarism affects the environment, why there is not enough funding for education but there is always money for war, who pays the price for war, and how the advances made in civil rights in the US have been won through largely nonviolent means.
We posted several of the new images/quotes from the Fort Hood Testimonials project -- a listening project where more than 1,000 soldiers and military family members from Ft. Hood were interviewed about their military experience.
Once again, it was good to be able to table right in front of the Nelson Mandela quote about education being the most important tool we can use to make positive change in the world. The Penny Poll results showed that students agree:
Education: 97 penny votes
Health Care: 72 pennies
Military: 57 pennies
Humanitarian Aid: 43 pennies
Environment: 41 pennies
Thanks for participating, Jaguars!
