"This post's for the countless souls..."

The number of US soldiers killed in Iraq surpassed the 1K mark on Tuesday. As of right now, the number stands at 1,005 US soldiers killed and some 6,500 wounded in "Operation Iraqi Liberation." In response, United for Peace and Justice is calling on activists to host and attend candle light vigils in their towns and cities on September 9, 2004 (today) to draw attention to the needless destruction of life and honor the memory of the deceased. It is important to note that while the US press finds it noteworthy to point out the number of soldiers killed in Iraqi, the civilian death toll has already surpassed the 10K mark, and that doesn't even begin to factor in deaths that occurred during the eleven years of protracted war prior to the Bushfeld adventure.

There will be one such event tonight starting at 7:45pm on the sidewalk around Church Street United Methodist Church for a candlelight procession/vigil. Shortly after 8:00pm the group will march to the John J. Duncan Federal Building at the corner of Cumberland and Locust. I guess that the event's "organizers" are claiming that Moveon.org called this action, and to that I say fuck Moveon.org.

"...who died in vain for someone else's gain."
