On August 2, I was one of almost 50 participants in the Peace and Justice week at Ghost Ranch who journeyed to Los Alamos, New Mexico, to take part in the Sackcloth and Ashes vigil sponsored by Pax Christ, New Mexico and others.
Participants in the vigil wore sackcloth and walked along Trinity Drive toward Los Alamos National Laboratory. At 2:45, we paused for 30 minutes of prayer.
A Presbyterian from Gallup, New Mexico, captured the day's essence in her simple sign.
