By coincidence, there was a nationally-coordinated effort to shut down the Occupy movement in the past few days.
Today, massive protests are expected in cities across the country.
What does all this mean for people who have been earnestly trying to end U.S. wars in Afghanistan and other places?
When we raise our voices again next Tuesday on #AfghanistanTuesday, what will be different?
Are we getting any closer? Are we learning anything?
How do we get results? Can we stop settling for anything less than an end to all this war-making?

One place I've focused my activism is my church community. Last fall, at the time of the Afghanistan invasion anniversary, I posed the question, "Where is the Church?" In the weeks and months that followed, I realized that I, myself, had to be part of the solution of giving direction to the Church.
