Silent Vigil






Okay folks, I'm moving forward. Tomorrow I will be attending a silent vigil with my daughter for the 3005 fallen Americans of the war. That is a number that just doesn't stop growing. I encourage you to click the link below and watch the movie. (I did try to put the movie on my page but apparently I am just not capable of that feat.)

Wage Peace

You can sign a letter to Congress HERE urging them to stop the war now.

Quite a film, Thanks!

Boots do more visually than the flags!

Let's hope common sense comes around soon!!!

Coffee Messiah- I agree w/you on the boots. It's very overwhelming and much more personal.

There's something about feet, where we stand, putting ourselves in another person's shoes, etc. Makes a great statement. good luck at the vigil and I hope you get some good pics.

When you see the boots, you think of every man and woman who stood in them, and are no longer here. It is very moving, and I signed the petition, adding my own comments. In Brook Park Ohio, the fallen of Lima Company are remembered in much the same way. Their rifle, boots, and dog tags. It is very moving.
Blessings always,

Let's hope the collective voices of an outraged nation can stop this senseless loss. Too bad "the decider" isn't "the listener". Thanks for the links and good luck with the vigil.

Thanks for stopping by Deuddersun!

Peacechick- Unfortunately I didn't get any pictures.

Thank Donnie

Ben- I agree. I have to do something even though I am not sure of its effects.

Thanks Alice.

Poetryman- Thank you and PEACE.

Deb- I saw the Combat Diaries piece on Lima Company which was really so incredibly moving. It ripped out my heart. I believe they showed the display you are speaking of. I don't think I will ever forget it. You are one tough lady and an inspiration.

JM- I just hope that will change.

Carla-Double thank you. Did you get that book for him? Also I rec'd your card and I had no idea what it was for. I thought you were chipping in for Christmas or something. I was gonna send it back. I seriously couldn't figure it out. It came to me finally.

Ole Blue- You are welcome.

Ms.-Okay. I will.

I cried.. again. The path of death so immensely sad, wasteful.
