Every Wednesday, a group of peace lovers hold a peace vigil on the Lake St Bridge over the Mississippi River. Living only a few blocks from there, I often run into the crowd.
But I knew something was different about today’s vigil. For one, cars full of people with “Get out of Iraq” signs were filling up the street in front of my house. And there was the hum of a helicopter hovering over the Mississippi from one of our local news stations.
It turns out that 5 years of killing people in Iraq has really motivated people.
My favorite sign: “Who put our oil under their sand?”
