Hillsdale Peace Vigils set for Friday evenings

Do you have a half hour to give for peace?

Many Hillsdalites will gather at the corner of Capitol Highway and Sunset Boulevard from 5:30 p.m. to 6 p.m. this Friday, and on future Fridays, to show our community's resolve for peace.

The location at the entrance to Wilson High School is worth noting for those who are skeptical about the effectiveness of peace demonstrations, large or small.

These vigils teach peace to a whole new generation that has seen little of it for six years. This young generation, here and around the world, will continue to bear the strife and suffering resulting from our doing nothing.

They will learn from our doing something—together.

Please join us. Bring a peace sign. Join in reading the names of those Oregonians who have died in Iraq.

If you find yourself driving through the intersection, honk, or flash your lights, for peace!

See you Friday evening.
