Clergy and peace activists have teamed up to declare "28 Days of Peace," a call for a citywide ceasefire which will end on August 28, the 55th anniversary of the day Emmitt Till was killed and the 47th anniversary of Dr. Martin Luther King's "I have a dream" speech. Considering the carnage this weekend, a month without violence may be a tad too ambitious.
