The War Continues

Please take a moment to watch the Flash photography presentation by Paul
Fusco, "Bitter Fruit" and consider gathering with your fellow Americans
for a vigil to acknowledge our fallen troops and reflect on the current
war for which our country is dying every day. Additionally, this
Saturday there is a Boston rally against the war. With the majority of
the nation now against this war, your presence and voice of courage is
more important than ever.

"A War without casualties? A war where only the evil get hurt? As much as we would like to believe this, such an idea does not exist. War produces casualties and destroys lives. Since the beginning of the Iraqi war the government has consistently tried to divert media attention both visually and factually."

An obvious example of that effort was closing Dover Air Force Base to the press so we cannot see rows of flag-draped coffins ready to be shipped to grieving families.

Bitter Fruit

"This week, the number of American soldiers lost while serving in Iraq reached over 2000. While thousands of families have made the ultimate sacrifice, thousands more send their children and loved ones off to a war that seems to have no end in sight.

Tomorrow, Wednesday, October 26, 2005 at 6:30 p.m. we will gather for a vigil to acknowledge our fallen soldiers and reflect on the war in Iraq.

This is an opportunity for thousands of us to gather together and acknowledge the sacrifices made by over 2000 American men and women in Iraq and their families and speak out against the war."
