Posted:Just wanted to share this...
This morning, my anti-war group at school, Students Against War (SAW) held a silent vigil to remember and mourn for all the people who have died in this war in Iraq. We wore black, and stood in a circle in the back of my school where people get dropped off. We had signs that said "How many more", and 2 benches covered by an American and an Iraqi flag to represent coffins. It was pouring rain, which actually felt very right for the situation, because we were all just standing there still and silent. we had a fairly good turnout, and it also showed our support becaus we did it anyways even though it was kind of miserable out.

Posted:"kind of miserable"????!!!!!! it was very miserable, at least for the other people who didnt have umbrelas, i think the rain really added something to it, symbolic tears or something, it just reinforced the misery of it all frown

if you think that our kiss was all in the lips, come on you got it all wrong man, and if you think that our dance was all in the hips then, oh well, do the twist -The White Stripes
