Tonight, we remembered. So many lost.

Tonight as the sun set and the rain began to trickle down, a group of citizens quietly remembered the 5th anniversary of the invasion of Iraq at a gathering at Main and Gregson Streets. We remembered the soldiers already lost and the ones who are still there who should be home. It is horrible to think of the needless waste of life, not to mention assets, that can never, ever be put right again. Gone. Wasted. For what?

Not a bad turnout for a rainy Wednesday night. Nice to see some familiar faces in your photos.
Year six starts on Thursday.

Jack, I agree. It was also great we got so many people giving us the thumb-ups and honking at the "Honk if you want us out of Iraq" sign. Lots of support even if they weren't standing in the rain with us.
