“Peach of the Week” – Amanda

Filed under: "Peach" of the Week — Mikael @ 9:11 am

Data entry.

Did you cringe? I did. There is nothing I would rather avoid more than typing those names and numbers into our database so that everyone who wants to will get our “Action Alerts”.

Amanda does this for us… No, really… she volunteered!

No only that, but if we were having a competition to see who has put in the most hours holding up “IMPEACHFORPEACE.ORG” banners, Amanda would be in the running for the Gold Medal.

I hardly know you, Amanda, but I appreciate you immensely!!!

“Peach of the Week” – Dr. Kimberly

Filed under: "Peach" of the Week — Mikael @ 9:11 am

We just lost her to Berkeley.


Our loss, their gain.

Dr. Kimberly (PHD in Religious Studies) is off to begin her first professorship at a small college in the Bay Area of California.

Thank you Kimberly for everything you have done for us. We know you are continuing to do as much and more in your new home.

We miss you.

I miss you.

“Peach of the Week” – Pfarr

Filed under: "Peach" of the Week — Mikael @ 9:11 am

Busy as hell raising three young boys, helping run the family farm in the Le Sueur area and working full-time as Associate Director of Bolder Options, a wonderful youth mentoring organization, Mr. Pfarr takes time out to invest in the work of reclaiming America for Democracy, Freedom and Justice through an ongoing supportive relationship with ImpeachforPeace.org.

He hosted our first Impeachment Party, sponsored our first banner and sold me the house our first meetings were held in.

He a great friend and keeps me sane by insisting I have a social life now and then. You ain’t never experienced a party until you been to a Pfarr hog roast, baby!

Perhaps the only stonger non-meeting attending supporter we have is his wife Julie.

“Peach of the Week” – Sgt. Dan Fearn

Filed under: "Peach" of the Week — Mikael @ 9:11 am

Marine Sgt. Daniel Fearn, self-proclaimed “Impeachment Grunt”, has been an absolutely stellar ally of ours in this effort since long before Impeachforpeace.org came into existence. He has been fixated on holding the Bush Administration accountable for its crimes and misdemeanors for over three years. His graphic art work has shown up on websites and in print across the nation for organizations such as AfterDowningStreet.org, World Can’t Wait.org as well as ImpeachforPeace.org. After spending a weekend with him in Seattle at the Veteran’s for Peace Convention I know that not only do I have as good a partner in this struggle as I could ever ask for, I also have new friend of the highest caliber. When I think “Support the Troops”, I think of the masses coming to the attention of Sgt. Fearn.

“Peach of the Week” – Jodin

Filed under: "Peach" of the Week — Mikael @ 9:11 am

I need a break. Burnout. Too much anger. I have imposed too much of a burden on myself. As I take many Tuesdays off to travel to Seattle, work to pay the mortgage and to just get some distance and perspective on this incredibly important commitment we all share, I know that everything will move forward without a hitch. Why?


He is a leader. He is unwavering in the integrity of his commitment to this cause. His insight and dedication to research into the ways in which a President can be impeached may eventually save this Republic from disaster. When I cannot continue, I step down and take a breath, knowing full well that Jodin will move things forward in my stead and ImpeachforPeace.org will not miss a beat.

I promise to be there for him when he needs a breath.

“Peach of the Week” – Nancy

Filed under: "Peach" of the Week — Mikael @ 9:11 am

I met Nancy working with MoveOn.org in helping to get John Kerry elected in 2004. We went door-to-door in North Minneapolis and helped get out the vote to make our precinct the one with the lowest percentage of Bush votes in the city.

In addition to being a beautiful dancer, Nancy works for a company that prints banners and table covers and other oversized printed materials.

We of ImpeachforPeace.org now have four beautiful banners, a great table cover and I have a fantastic banner for my front door as a housewarming gift – all at far less than we could ever have possibly afforded elsewhere.

Nancy is of Turkish descent, and a Muslim, it warms my heart to know that I, a Christian, and she are so completely in harmony in our faith and our spirit in wanting peace, justice and a world in which we can live together with all the other children of God.

“Peach” of the Week – Marty

Filed under: "Peach" of the Week — Mikael @ 9:11 am

Choosing to live a life that exemplifies his personal values and perspective on the world like no-one else, Marty bikes everywhere and brings a quiet celebration of joy with him: not just to meetings and local events, not just to local protests, although he seems to be at all of them. While Jodin, Jan and I drove our fossil fuel burners to Geneva, Minnesota at the end of June for Project Earth, Marty pedaled eighty miles to join us. If it would bring peace, I have no doubt Marty would leave on his bike tomorrow for Lebanon, Iraq or Palestine. If it would bring justice, Marty would ride from here to Washington D.C. and then from D.C. to the Washington State Federal Penitentiary in Walla Walla with the whole criminal Administration on his back.

Peach of the Week: Anonymous

Filed under: "Peach" of the Week — Mikael @ 10:41 pm

The Peach of the week this week is you. You know who you are. You haven’t attended a meeting yet. You haven’t given any money. You haven’t yet shown up for a protest, a parade, a protest march or even e-mailed or called to let us know you support our work. But you will. You know you will. Your integrity, your honor, your ethos won’t let you not. You are the one you have been waiting for. You and you alone will tip the balance and make this essential movement succeed. You haven’t committed yet, but when you do..? Watch out world, there will be no stopping you. There will be no stopping us. We will always keep an empty seat available at our meetings and there is no time too late or too early for us to recieve your call when you are ready to step forward and announce: “I am ready to change the world”.

Peach of the Week: Jan

Filed under: "Peach" of the Week — Mikael @ 2:35 pm

It was very reassuring to know that we were sending Jan to be our representative to the national meeting in New York City and Kalamazoo, knowing she would garner respect and build strong relationships with other chapters for us. A consistent contributor and attender of meetings and events since joining us, Jan grounds and healthily balances the more energetic and talkative members such as myself with her patient, steady demeanor and her calm wisdom. I look forward to reading more of her writing as it emerges out of her participation in this movement.

“Peach” of the Week – Dave

Filed under: "Peach" of the Week — Mikael @ 11:00 am

He reads my e-mails. He shows up. He gets it done. Whatever needs to be done that he can do, he does. Every organization needs all kinds of people, but when it comes to the “nuts & bolts” of actually “getting it done”, it is the “Dave’s” that are essential to find in order to function. On top of that, Dave’s ideas and perspectives in meetings are an integral contribution to our success. He is a doer, he is a thinker and he loves penguins. Dave.
