    This poem was created by Kenneth Kennon in Arizona, organizer of the Ft. Huachuca event, sister action to the Close the School of the Americas vigil:

    The Sanctuary of Presente

    by Kenneth Kennon

    The fence was transformed

    Once again

    Into an unseasonable sacred space

    A sanctuary of nonviolence

    By the power of the spirit

    Festooned on chain-links and barbed wire

    White crosses and stars hung

    Carrying names of the disappeared

    Their holy images

    And banners with messages of hope

    This quiet metamorphosis

    Emerged from simple acts of many hands

    As tears welled

    Names rang through stately wood

    Of brillant and falling leaves of autumn

    In solemn preparation

    Of a joyous spring
