Long Islanders Take a Stand and Walk for Peace
The Long Island branch of the Peace Alliance raised $2,200 at its Sept. 16 "Walk for Peace," held at Carpenter Park in Sea Cliff. Nearly 60 participants, not only from Sea Cliff but from all over Long Island, turned out to help raise awareness of the nonprofit organization's goal: to raise awareness of legislation that would create a cabinet-level U.S. Department of Peace and Nonviolence. The department would work on both an international and a national level, advising the federal government on techniques to create national and international peace, as well as establishing a Peace Academy to train civilian peacekeepers and the military, and would deal with the issues of domestic and gang violence, explained Brian Mannix, who organized the walk.

The meeting began with civility, advanced to discourtesies and rudeness, then returned to a mannerly atmosphere, due, perhaps to the lateness of the hour, as by midnight exhaustion was expressed both in the words and on the faces of the resolute audience and captive city council.
