Peace Scooter Finish in Crawford Oct. 13, 2007







Alix rode her scooter 11,000 miles across the U.S., her route in the shape of a gigantic peace sign. Along the way she spoke to all she could about peace, hoping to help end our country's addiction to war. She finished her ride Oct. 13 at the Bush ranch checkpoint. And in a display of outstanding karma, Bush was at the ranch that day!! The first image is of Alix in the Peace House being interviewed by a major mainstream media outlet. She was interviewed by 2, including CNN and one of the big 3 networks. Alix spoke in a very articulate, well informed, moving, and soothing manner. In the second image activists from Friends of Peace and Crawford Texas Peace House held banners at the Prairie Chapel Road checkpoint near the Bush ranch awaiting Alix's arrival. One of the networks was present to capture her arrival at the checkpoint and obtain a brief statement from Alix (third image). As the local activists greeted her, she shared a glass of champagne (nonalcoholic), celebrating the end of her long voyage for peace (last image).
But of course, the journey and struggle have just begun.
