A Time to Mourn

I suppose that it was only fitting that, on Easter -- the day that the Christian faith celebrates the resurrection of Jesus -- would also be the date that the 4,000 death of American forces would occur. Roadside bomb kills 4, brings U.S. deaths in Iraq to 4,000. A milestone reached within a week of another grim anniversary, the 5th year of the Iraq War. War No More.

The American Friends Service Committee has a list of places where vigils of peace supporters are holding events, to commemorate the lives of U.S. Soldiers and Iraqis, see Wage Peace. For information on the vigil in Philly, see Philadelphia Regional Anti-War Network.

Whether you march or not, it's a time to mourn.

Posting on these types of milestones is so depressing, but we must in order to overcome the grief.
