We started the Gathering with bannering on a busy street corner in Colorado Springs. Everyone was surprised with the positive response from drivers — many honking and showing thumbs up. Only one negative response that any of us noticed. Let’s end war — we’re the majority! Photos by Donna Johnson and Ruth Benn.

is a great place to meet. Thanks everyone!
