Reflections on Camp Casey-September 17

After returning to my home, Homer alaska, from Camp Casey, I received this lovely email from Peter and Geniveve...a couple that decided to get married at Camp Casey. They said they couldn't think of any place they would rather say their vows to each other. Anyway, shortly after we broke camp at Camp Casey I recieved this email from Peter... I found his reflections on the experience there profound. I would like to share them with all of you......peace .........Alaska Gyrl aka Kim Terpening

Peters email to me after his wedding to Geniveve:
Thanks for your blog from Camp Casey, we will never forget that place.__As we walked the mile to our car away from CC on our wedding night, the tent glowed in the distance. It looked like a spaceship on the Texas prairie. __Looking back, we realized that the place we were wed will physically disappear today. The gathering on that Texas roadside, that collection of people from all over the United States and around the world will never exist again in the same way. It was a perfect moment in time where love and the ideal of peace was celebrated. It was a perfect place to get married. __Thanks for documenting it all.__Peter Ravella_Austin Texas

Tomas and Bree Young-Disabled Iraq Veteran

After meeting, hugging and photographing this brave young couple, I went back to my computer to upload the photo in the Camp Casey Universe and sobbed. I just couldn't stop. I guess after 10 days of the love, sadness and intensity of Camp Casey I just couldn't hold back the floodgates of emotion. Tomas was paralyzed from the chest down the same day Casey Sheehan was killed. He was in an unarmored vehicle with no top on it. He said that it must have been like shooting fish in a fishbowl.

Where I'm From

I miss all of you in Camp Casey...Please drop me a line or a write a comment on the blog to let me know what has been happening since I left yesterday. I can't say I miss the heat in Crawford but it is, after all, an essential ingredient in the magic happening there. Keep up the good fight. I love you all.

Almost Home

We can see this volcano from our window. It blew up once and darkened the skies with ash enough to turn the streetlights on mid-day.

Alaska Gyrl Discovers the Waterfalls

I can't believe I didn't discover this Mini Paradise a long time ago. Apparently lots of folks from Camp have cooled their lids here from time to time during this relentless heat wave. It's about 1 mile from the Peace House and, I'm guessing about 10 miles to Camp Casey 1 and 2.

Veterans For Peace

Every morning the Veterans For Peace meet and strategize about how to stop this war and how to help vets as they recover from
Post Traumatic Stress Disorder, bodily injury and all the other disabling conditions precipitated by war.

Young Democrats from Austin

A group of about 20 young Democrats from the University in Austin came down Monday to experience the phenomanon that is Camp Casey. These 2 students from the group told me about their vigilance and determination to register as many voters as possible prior to most recent presidential election. We are in able hands with these young people on board with us!
