Jonathan Lessing happily tries out a PET scooter at Sacred Heart Catholic Church in Columbia on Tuesday. The scooter is one of ten that the Pastors For Peace Caravan will hopefully deliver to Cuba in an act of civil disobedience later this summer. The hand-powered scooters are designed to provide mobility to victims of land mines and diseases like polio in regions where medical care is poor or unavailable.
