Some photos of the peace vigil Wednesday evening in Austin at Little Stacy Park. This was one of several vigils in Austin. Perhaps as befits a peace vigil, this one was more like a Quaker meeting than a political demonstration. Very quiet, with speakers and singers who had to make themselves heard the old-fashioned way, without amplification. Dignified and heartfelt. Lots of kids. It was a school-night, so parents had to leave early. Those of us who are older who like to go to bed early, left early also.
Cindy Sheehan has given a lot of people hope that something can be done to end this war. Good for her.
