Five Years

Tonight I went to a vigil at the town square. It was friggin' cold, and there weren't a lot of us, but people shared stories of PTSD, veterans denied benefits, and other things that inspired us to keep speaking out. A dedicated group here in Greencastle has a vigil every Thursday at 12:15. I can't go because of meetings, but I was glad to make it tonight. Next week is Spring Break, so I hope to take the kids to the vigil on Thursday. At this moment PBS is playing the American Masters special on Pete Seeger, who just sang "Waist Deep in the Big Muddy" and is now singing "Bring them Home" (Bruce's cover is better than anything else I could find on Youtube). Quite appropriate, tonight.
