It is a very sad time for the peace community due to the identity of a recent homicide victim in Minneapolis, Lois Swenson ("She championed peace but died a homicide victim," June 15). Her work on so many peace and justice issues was tireless.
Even though Lois Swenson was retired as a school teacher, she didn't know the meaning of the word "retire."
We live in a time when sports figures and celebrities are our heroes. But to all the people Lois came in contact with, she was a true hero. Her life journey ended too soon, but her high ideals will live on in others.
I am proud to be counted as one of many who will always say, "Lois Swenson was my hero."
