Tonight, just like nearly every Friday night since George W. Bush was re-elected in 2004, a tiny and committed group of Citizens will gather under the Pergola in front of Libbey Park for one hour beginning at 5pm, to vigil for an end to War. Tonight’s vigil carries an extra message: we mark the grotesque milestone of 1,000 U.S. military deaths in Afghanistan. (1,007 as of today, according to icasualties.org).
