Santa Cruz Vigil to Mark 1000 American Dead in Iraq Sept. 9

VIGIL TONIGHT (Thursday, Sept. 9) AT SANTA CRUZ TOWN CLOCK

Vigils to Mark 1000 American Dead in Iraq

7:00 PM - PLEASE BRING A CANDLE, YOUR PRAYERS, AND YOUR HOPE!!
United for Peace and Justice has called for nationwide vigils this evening.

We will gather at 7:00 PM at the Town Clock Park in Santa Cruz with candles, silence, and some songs.

UFPJ did an incredible service to us all last week, organizing the amazing presence, in all of its manifestations, at the republican convention in NYC. They have called for solidarity and reflection this evening around the country.

Join us if you can, or light a candle at home and leave it burning in your window.

Peace, now, in all places, and at all times

Late yesterday, our country passed a terrible milestone: the death toll of US troops in Iraq reached 1000. This comes on top of at least 10,000 Iraqi deaths, and over 7,000 American wounded, in our bloodiest war since Vietnam. The number of Iraqi wounded is unknown.

As people of faith, we are called to guide our nation on a wise course that cherishes all life, and abhors the unjust use of force.

Click below to gather in your community TONIGHT (Thursday Sept. 9), pray for the victims of this war and their families, and help guide our nation onto a wiser path.
