19. Does the UU still shut down in the summer?
The UU church burned down in my old home town. They were very active in the anti war movement. I think that was why they got torched.


I went to a meeting there during the Vietnam war. When we left, the church was surrounded by police in riot gear. We were told by the organizers to stay silent, don't make eye contact and do not do anything that would give them reason to attack. There were no incidents that night. It was difficult to pass between them without brushing against one, but we had to because that could have been seen a provocation.
