Well, we just finished our second protest for the week. It was interesting to me that doing it on a different day and time (yesterday, Friday evening), and at a different location (today), that we attracted a whole new crowd of participants. We were joined by several passersby who asked if they could grab a sign and stand with us, and they stayed the whole time. One gentleman found us because he had read the article in the News Herald. Lots of young people today, which was especially gratifying, and State Representative Kathleen Law was there as well.

And so we grow...

Protest Schedule Change

Due to the Downriver Cruise we have decided to change our protest schedule a bit for this week. We will actually do it twice: tonight, Friday 6/29/07 at 7pm at the usual spot (Fort Street and Oak), and tomorrow, Saturday 6/30/07 at 12noon at the corner of Eureka and Biddle (by the fountain).

If you're one of those folks who can't make it on a Saturday afternoon, this is your chance to come in the evening. Hope to see you there!

Our protest got a nice little write up in the local paper this week. Perhaps like-minded people will see the article and join us?

Going on Record

Every day. Every single day, the number of American troops killed in Iraq rises. What are we as a country thinking? How can so many of my fellow citizens stand in silence? How could I have remained silent, for so long?

No more. I will stand in protest every week until our troops come home. Each week I will document here the current number of our brave men and women who have died in george's war. A very small gesture on my part of honor and mourning.

They deserve so much more.
