Tears, Prayers, and Protest on Gulf

THERE was no shock, or euphoria, as the news spread that ground war had begun. Rather, sadness and prayers filled those with family members fighting in the Persian Gulf. Even the clutch of antiwar protesters, huddled against a chill wind opposite the White House, were subdued early Sunday. ``Problems of education, homelessness, and inadequate sanitation,'' says protester Mark Robinowitz of Takoma Park, Md., ``could be solved for the entire planet for what they have spent on this war, and that would contribute more to global security than bombing Iraq and Kuwait.'' In Miami, Evelyn Wrasse gathered with mothers at an ``Operation Homefront'' office that helps soldiers' families. ``I just hope and pray this will be over quickly and that my son, and everyone else's sons, will be safe,'' she said. -PATHNAME- /usr/local/etc/httpd/plweb/DBGROUPS/paper/database/tape/91/mar/week10/afil25.
