I couldn't sleep. I kept flopping back and forth and Wondering....How many people poured out for the Vigils ????
Because I feel hopeful, and that a shift has occurred this month. And that Cindy has opened a wondrous flood gate.
That a movement is now in full momentum. And I have not felt that way in a VERY long time.
So at 4am I started trolling, blogging and googling on the Internet- and WOW- Holy Shit....
I was right Batman.
IT IS HAPPENING.
(If I had Cindy's phone number I would call her right now!!!)
So I googled Cindy + Peace Vigils and the posts started ROLLING in- even small little papers and
all kinds of articles. And what struck me was that all the articles had similiarities, painful and beautiful.
Many Many Churches and Religous Groups and Orgs were involved in the planning of these Vigils.
Offering sanctuary and comfort- as they should.
And many grieving families, and also VETS finally had support..
This needed to happen.....to help heal these troubled souls.
This needed to happen ....because we are all neighbors and family.
This needed to happen ...because it is still our country.
This needed to happen...because it is TIME.
So here in random order as I pulled down the newly google articles, is
a Partial- very partial list of just some of the towns and villages that held Peace Vigils in support of Cindy and Casey
and all the Troops and Gold Star Families.:
Gallatin, Waco,Crawford,Dallas,Austin, Gallveston,San Antonio, Munster, Wand, Nathcez, Columbia, Lansing,Roseburg,Houghton.Fresno, Phoenix, Detroit, Seattle,Tacoma, Bremerton, Tallahassee, Burlington,Salt Lake City, Chapel Hill, Joplin, South Bend, Akron, Cleveland, Boca Raton, Beaverton,Baltimore, Frederick, Miami, Phuli, Buffalo, Twin Falls, Bozeman, Louisville, Kare, Corvalis, Heart of the Valley, Boston, Lompoc, Vacaville, Decator, Talequah, daton, Dayton, Columbus, Salem, Iron Range, New Haven, Wilkes Barre, Twin Falls, Fairfield.Forward, Knoxville......
