Nashville's Moveon.Org to Host Candlelight Vigil
Nashville Gathers to Commemorate the 4th Anniversary of the War in Iraq
Nashville – Residents of Nashville will hold a vigil to commemorate the 4th anniversary of the war in Iraq. The vigil will honor American soldiers who were wounded or killed in Iraq through a reading of personal accounts written by family members of those who have died.
At this sad moment, people across the country are reflecting on the war in Iraq. For the first time Congress is considering a real deadline to bring our troops home safely from Iraq. This important step gives the troops, military families, and concerned citizens around the country real hope for a change in course.
"It is time to stop the escalation, bring our troops home safely and end this war," said Anna Thompson, a MoveOn.org Political Action member. "We urge Rep. Cooper to pass legislation to redeploy American troops out of Iraq this year."
People will gather at candlelight vigils holding signs that say "Iraq War: Wrong Way" and "Keep 'em safe, Bring 'em home."
