Can You Attend a Vigil on Wednesday?

From TrueMajority (http://www.truemajorityaction.org/) & MoveOn.org (http://www.moveon.org/), I found this about "Can You Attend a Vigil on Wednesday?"

"The war in Iraq has gone on for nearly five years. The unbearable costs at home and abroad keep mounting. It's clear that Americans are ready for a real change in direction.On March 19th, tens of thousands of people across the country will gather to observe the fifth anniversary of the war with candlelight vigils. We'll commemorate the sacrifices too many families have made, and the billions of dollars wasted in Iraq that could have been better invested at home..Join us at a candlelight vigil on Wednesday, March 19th. Honor the sacrifice. Change our priorities. Bring the troops home.
Click here to organize your own vigil, or sign up for one near you."
