To mark the tragic death of the 3000th US military person in Iraq.

This event is supported by several local groups:

From a Friend:

"Hello darkness, my old friend

I've come to talk with you again

Because a vision softly creeping

Left its seeds while I was sleeping

And the vision that was planted in my brain

Still remains

Within the sound of silence."

Light a candle in that darkness

Break the silence.

"But my words, like silent raindrops fell

And echoed

In the wells of silence."

Join us Tuesday, Jan 2nd on the Memorial Bridge from 5 to 7 p.m. on the
Virginia side of the Memorial Bridge. Bring candles, signs and props. The
Virginia entrance to the Memorial Bridge is a particularly busy and
dangerous intersection. Please cross the street in designated areas. You
can take the metro to Arlington Cemetery. The vigil is about 4 blocks
away. The last metro leaves Arlington Cemetery by 6:50 pm. The Foggy
Metro is about a mile away. There is usually plenty of parking on Ohio
Drive along the river in DC.

Above lyrics by Simon & Garfunkel

This war may never end unless more of us show up. Hell, it may never end
even if we do. Make it a new year of resistance! fromthefield/ 219522/116765898 292.htm
