Even as violence is erupting in the Middle East and other parts of the world, women of Muslim, Jewish, Christian, Hindu, Buddhist, and other spiritual backgrounds showed their commitment to being witnesses for peace as they walked through the convention center side by side, not saying a word…

And in case people doubt its crashworthiness, Dietzen pounded hard on the hood a dozen times.

No dents.
