There is a Guy on my job. A conscientious objector.  A one Man band.  Yes, this Guy. He spends his lunch hour in this corner at the entrance of the cafeteria with this sign, among others.  When he first started this crusade he was hell bent against the war in Afghanistan. At the time of this picture, a few weeks ago, the U.S. relationship with Iran was his concern. Today it was

” say no to drones, the evil that will come home to roost”

This made me uneasy. I heard myself saying “Jesus, I need to change my lunch hour”, as I read this. When saying so, all the ills he addressed should make me uneasy. This latest one though, got under my skin.

How many one man bands do you suppose it takes to affect change? I’m pretty sure I’m not the only one he had that effect on.
