Change Agents

Kathleen Kelly of Voices in the Wilderness reports on two very interesting visitors she had recently at the Pekin Federal Prison Camp, in Pekin, Illinois, where she is incarcerated for her protest at the U.S. Army's military combat training school in Fort Benning, Georgia. (formerly known as The School of the Americas before it got an "in name only" facelift)

She begins with a scintillating quote from Arundhati Roy:
Another world is not only possible, she is on her way. On a quiet day, I can hear her breathing.

(Delivered at the Porto Alegre Brazil World Social Forum)
Excerpt from Kathleen's unusual day: "Kathleen Kelly, report to Admin." I was routinely cleaning toilets in my dorm... "Someone wants to talk with you."

Breathing in. Breathing out. It's just breathe, breathe, breathe every day.
