Support the Troops

Wednesday, August 17, 2005

If you really want to show some support, take that stupid meaningless ribbon magnet off your car and drive yourself to your nearest Cindy Sheehan candlelight vigil. As of this morning, there are over 1,400 planned vigils across the country. Check out MoveOn.org for your nearest vigil. If you claim to support the troops, then support the mother of someone who died in combat. She has paid the ultimate sacrifice.

The vigils start at 7:30 nationwide. Show this administration that we don't want anymore dead soldiers or grieving mothers. If you can't make it to one, then maybe you could just go out on your porch/deck/lawn, have a moment of silence, and light a candle. As a side note, you may also want to take a second during the vigil to think about the mothers in Iraq also grieving for their dead sons and daughters.

I would like to report that the Worcester Pleasant St. vigil was a great sucess. Over 150 people attended and as a result they plan on holding a vigil every Wednesday evening for 1/2 hour at dusk. Come one come all.

...as Bill Maher said about the trend of affixing an american flag to your car after 9/11 (which is the same trend as these ridiculous magnet ribbons):

"it's LITERALLY the least you can do."
