March 27 -
April 1, 2007
Please note that this year's
walk is not taking place during Holy Week.
We walk in the footsteps of
a long legacy of peace walkers and spiritual leaders
to draw attention to the nuclear dangers that continue
to threaten our sacred planet and the community of
life. Please join us in transforming fears into compassion
and apathy into action in NDE's 2007 Sacred Peace
annual pilgrimage to the Nevada Test Site will begin
on March 26th as we gather in Las Vegas and prepare
for our six-day walk. Amidst the beauty of the desert,
the transformation of our spirits will reflect the
transformation we wish to see at the Nevada Test Site.
We become a nomadic community through shared meals,
sacred time together, ceremonies, and the meditative
prayer-action of walking. In the quiet of the desert,
the inspiration calling us to participate in this
journey will become clearer.
On the final day, April 1st, we will gather at the
gates of the Test Site with others who join us in
a rally and action denouncing current nuclear plans
and other warmaking preparations at the Test Site
and propose alternatives for the land and industry.
There will also be an optional action on Monday, April
2nd to reach out to the Test Site workers.
The 2007 Sacred Peace Walk will have a special interfaith
focus commemorating Sr. Rosemary Lynch's 90th birthday,
Mohammed's birthday, Palm Sunday, April Fools Day,
and early celebration of Passover, Buddha's birthday,
and the full moon.
