Peace vigil in Little Stacy Park, Austin

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.
