Starting the Conversation about Peace
NEED TO UPDATE LINKS FROM OLD SITE
Putting a War Is Not the Answer sign in your yard or your window, sticking a bumper sticker version on your car, or wearing a War Is Not the Answer button are all ways to show you support peace.
They’re also likely to cause some comment from the person who parks next to you in the lot, the person behind you in the grocery checkout line, and the people who live in your neighborhood.
Here are some ideas of how FCNL supporters have answered common reactions to War Is Not the Answer materials, such as “If War Is Not the Answer, what is?” and “What’s the question?”
Finding Hope in Unexpected Places
One common reaction to War Is Not the Answer materials is, “Where can I get one of those?” FCNL constituents have had requests for War Is Not the Answer materials while:
...lobbying their senator. You'd never suspect what a strong effect a button could have.
...handing out Halloween candy. The concerned mother of a soldier found the social opportunity of trick-or-treating to be the best time for a conversation on peace.
...shopping for gloves. Ruth was asked for a button while in the middle of a department store!
