Cindy Sheehan vigil update

I was so wrapped up in the Newton case that I forgot to remind people about the Cindy Sheehan vigil which already happened tonight.

I went to the vigil in Newtown hosted by Joan Ellen Gereg at the Edmond Town Hall and I was amazed and delighted by the high turnout and show of support. I personally counted 150 people a hour after the vigil started but the local newspaper, The Danbury News Times reported the crowd at 200 which sounds more accurate the crowd was larger at the beginning of the service.

I'm in the process of cleaning up and transfering all of my photographs and video to the site and so I will provide a full report of the event once the upload is completed.

UPDATE: Photos and video are now online and available for viewing.
