My teenage daughter came home from school Wednesday and announced that her teacher would give her extra credit if she attended the peace rally. Wanting to teach her about free speech, I went with her.

I was embarrassed by the filthy language on many T-shirts and posters. Free speech was really "free shouting." My daughter quickly suggested we leave.

I said, "Don't you feel the peace in this rally?"

She replied, "There is only hate and anger."

It was a peace rally without peace.
