Peace Takes Courage is a project by Ava Lowery, a 15-year-old student and peace activist from Alabama. In mid-March 2005, she created her first animation. Since then she has made over 70 animations, many of them about the war in Iraq. This week PDA got a chance to chat with Ava, whose powerful photo animation "WWJD?" on her web page has been stirring up some controversy.

3 Years Ago Today
quote:

Major combat operations in Iraq have ended. In the Battle of Iraq, the United States and our allies have prevailed.

- George W. Bush
May 1, 2003



At least 2,401 U.S. troops have died in the war in Iraq, and at least 2,263 of those deaths have occured after Bush declared "mission accomplished."

How many more deaths will it take for all Americans to stand up and demand the truth from the Bush administration and an end to the war in Iraq?

Cindy Sheehan: Peace Takes Courage
Cindy Sheehan wrote an article about the website and me today. Thanks so much Cindy!

quote:

Peace Takes Courage
by Cindy Sheehan, Gold Star Families for Peace

I have a new friend. She is a 15 year young peace activist named Ava Lowery. She is disgusted with the war and with the Bush regime and she started to use her talents for animation to make cartoons that oppose Bush and the war in Iraq.

She first came to my attention when I read an article about all of the ugly hate mail she is getting on her site for a particularly poignant and brilliant animation she has called: "WWJD." It is a heartbreaking piece that has a child singing: "Jesus loves me" and during the song she shows pictures of dead, wounded, bloody, and screaming Iraqi children. She wanted to show how Jesus loves Iraqi children also which is apparently a frightening concept to the people who practice Bushianity.

PROGRESSIVE MAGAZINE ARTICLE ABOUT PEACE TAKES COURAGE!!!
Via: The Progressive

quote:

Ava Lowery is a fifteen-year-old who lives in Alabama. She calls herself a peace activist, and for the past year, she’s been producing her own short animations on her website, peacetakescourage.com. All in all, she’s made about seventy of them, she says, and most of them oppose Bush and his Iraq War.

“I was just so mad about it,” she explains. “And the media are not showing the real images of the war, so I did a lot research and started my own website.”

She submitted one of her latest creations, “WWJD,” to the monthly “contagious” contest that huffingtonpost.com is running. (It’s an open contest that ranks the number of viewers for each submission.)

“WWJD” (“What Would Jesus Do”) is a powerful animation that features a soundtrack of a child singing “Jesus loves me, this I know” while one picture after another of a wounded, bloody, or screaming Iraqi child fills the screen.

“The object of the animation,” says Lowery, is “to get the following point across: Jesus loves Iraqis, too.”

Lowery ends the video with quotations from Beatitudes, including, “Blessed are they who mourn” and “Blessed are the meek” and “Blessed are the merciful” and “Blessed are the peacemakers.”

She says she’s received a lot of positive feedback in short messages back to her site. And she understands that the fact that “people are on the web, and they just let loose.” But she was unprepared for the viciousness of the negative feedback - especially the ugly sexual slurs similar to those that Cindy Sheehan has faced. (If you can’t stand foul language, stop reading now.)
