As an alternative way of marking Remembrance Day, consider coming to the inter-faith, inter-denominational prayer walk.
This is in no way a protest or replacement for traditional Remembrance Day observation, it’s simply a way of remembering all victims of war, and honouring and remembering the way of peace.
Here is an Edmonton Journal interview with Scott Key, organizer of the Prayer Walk and Chair of Edmonton Ecumenical Peace Network.
