Ship of  heroes, the peaceful kind, the kind that endeavor to saves lives, to restore quality of life, freedom of life, the rights of individuals regardless of nation, creed, color, or class, those kinds of heroes; upon this ship are many of the faces of the peace movement, people who bravely opposed the Bush administration’s machinations of war and torture and who continue to oppose the machinations of the Obama administration yet who take their efforts to sea to attempt to bring life saving materials to the open air prison of Gaza.
