MoveOn.Org Anti-War Candlelight Vigils Today

(from MoveOn.Org):

This September, after hearing the White House‘s report on the "surge," Congress will decide whether we bring our troops home or spend another year fighting an unwinnable religious civil war. As Congress heads back to DC, we're here to tell them that it's time to take a stand.

We're holding candlelight vigils and Town Hall meetings in cities all over the nation on August 28--National Take a Stand Day--to remember the human cost of the war and urge our members of Congress to stand up in September and end this endless war.

It's not too late to plan to head to a vigil near you. The largest one will be in front of Horton Plaza at 5 pm but there are vigils planned for all around the county. I never thought that when I stood in Kensington Park 2 years ago with a candle that we'd still be in this fucking mess and that it would be even worse. I'm heading downtown now.
