"Why are we here?" We are here to root out all aspects of dehumanization that exists within us. We are here to stand with those being dehumanized by oppressors and stand firm against that dehumanization. We are here to stop people, including ourselves, from dehumanizing any of God's children, no matter how much they dehumanize their own souls."
-- Tom Fox, Christian Peacemaker Teams, killed in Iraq, March 2006

Join together with others who are shifting the meaning of collateral, from its association with the word "damage," to its other denotation of commonality, of a long lost blood connection. Help rehumanize this war by creating a quilt that honors those who have died. Let us show Iraq and the world that we are side by side in this pain and loss of human life, and that we will not stand for more killing.
