'Peace Vigil Mom' Gets Local Support

Candlelight Vigils Begin At 7:30 P.M.

COLUMBUS, Ohio -- A woman camped out at President George W. Bush's Texas ranch received some local support Tuesday, NBC 4 reported.

A national political action organization known as Move On is sponsoring candlelight vigils across the country Wednesday night.

A local vigil is planned for 7:30 p.m. at 1850 Upper Chelsea in Upper Arlington to support Cindy Sheehan, the mother whose son was killed in Iraq.

Sheehan has vowed to remain in Texas through Bush's August vacation, unless he meets with her. She began her protest 10 days ago and has since been joined by more than 100 anti-war activists.

Another vigil is planned for the same time in Bexley at East Broad Street and Drexel Avenue.

Does anyone know of a vigil that will be strictly for the soldiers and not a liberal anti-war protest with candles.

No..liberals seem to be the only ones who care...
