    Just wanted to let everyone know that there will be a Vigil for Pittsburgh's Highland Drive VA Hospital (another VA Hospital set to close), tomorrow, 7/22/04, from 5:00 p.m. until 7:00 p.m. at the KDKA Garden's behind Gateway Center. I'm not too sure if Highland Drive will be able to be saved, but I am sure that the more people that we have there the stronger the message will get out to our elected officials that closing VA Hospitals is something that we will not tolerate. We have troops coming home everyday, and we need to make sure that every...

    This pastor was overwhelmed to have led the benediction at the close of the Memorial Service of Ronald Wilson Reagan in Columbia, MO on Friday, June 11th, 2004. It was an honor that was certainly undeserved. The ceremony was a dual blessing. On the one hand, it was an opportunity to celebrate a President who single-handedly brought an end to the Soviet Union without a single shot being fired. History will never forget his June 12th, 1987 appeal from West Germany: "General Secretary Gorbachev, if you seek peace, if you seek prosperity for the Soviet Union and Eastern Europe, if...

    WASHINGTON -- They met at midnight under clear moonlit skies, strangers standing on a patch of foot-worn grass. There were cattlemen from Texas, soldiers from Virginia, two nuns, two interns in party dresses, a college kid from Delaware wearing a handmade tribute T-shirt. Three suit-and-tie Republicans from Connecticut waited with a child from Washington too young to know why he was there and a Nicaraguan man from California who said it was the least he could do.

    I know it is a little late, but I wanted to at least post some pictures of our FReeping Vigil for President Regan. After some rapid action and planning, we organized a small vigil to remember President Ronald Wilson Reagan. 7:30pm Monday evening (6/7/04). The heavy rains let up a bit as we started gathering in the park. It seemed kind of fitting. As the sadness of our loss lifted, we were left to share with each other the joy we felt at having been touched by this great leader. We looked through pictures and re-read the speeches while listening...

The events kicked off at 7 p.m. off with the Pledge of Allegiance led by by Clermont County Commissioner Bob Proud. "I know when we planned this, we planned this with the thought that he's alive. Now we know he's alive and being held hostage. We must keep strong," said Proud following the pledge. Proud stressed the importance of yellow ribbons as a sign of support in the community.

    Vigil Continues In Boise Park As Monument's Move Looms By Scott Logan BOISE - The big question is -- when will the City of Boise move the Ten Commandments monument after a federal judge Wednesday rejected a religious coalition's request to keep the monument in Julia Davis Park? City council member Alan Shealy said he thought the monument would be moved by now, but it remained in Julia Davis Park as night fell Thursday. Members of the Keep The Commandments Coalition maintained an around-the-clock vigil at the site, but the only thing moving were people's feet as they shuffled...

    Hello everyone, Just thought I might let you know of some good old conservative activism that's happening at one of our nation's college campuses, Indiana University. Our group, the Grand Old Cause, is having a candlelight vigil tonight to remember all the lives that have been lost due to abortion since the Roe v. Wade decision came down 31 years ago today. Local churches, conservative ones anyway, have been very helpful to us and things should go well. If there is any protest or controversy I'll be sure to let you all know.

    Joe Gromelski / Stars and Stripes WASHINGTON — Hope mixed with fear make up the fleeting thoughts of a lost friend that hit Jim Stafford at the oddest of times — during church, over a pancake breakfast, while showering. Where is his friend, Scott Speicher? Is he eating well, able to shower, in good health? But never do Stafford’s thoughts drift to “is he alive?” the 46-year-old Floridian said Saturday at a candlelight vigil held on the western lawn of the U.S. Capitol. Saturday was the 13th anniversary of the Navy pilot’s disappearance over Iraq. Speicher was 33 when his...

    Husband Michael to Do Some Image-Polishing Watch out! Terri's husband, Michael Schiavo, is going to be making the rounds of the national press during the next week. The purpose of this is to portray Michael as and reinforce his image as the victim of unfair attacks, and as being solely motivated by his deep care for Terri and his desire to carry out her wishes to be killed. The first stop of this train will be his appearance on Monday night's "Larry King Live" show. Larry King is slotted to have Michael on for a full hour, unopposed by anyone...

    Dear Governor Bush: As members of the Catholic media, we beg you, in the name of our Lord Jesus, to intervene in the case of Terry Schiavo, and, by extension, in the lives of the millions of persons with special needs in Florida and throughout our country whose lives will be greatly endangered if Ms. Schiavo is left to die, or, more accurately, murdered through the present withdrawal of food and water. The judge in this case is acting on a remarkable doctrine: That food and water are medicines which may be granted or withheld based on a judicial...

    As you may already know, Gov Jeb Bush has not yet taken steps to protect the life of Terri Schindler-Schiavo. This is in spite of memorandums of law from several notable legal scholars ensuring him that he has the legal authority and obligation to do so. People in the Tallahassee area of Florida are encouraged to hold vigil at the capitol offices as well as the Governor's mansion. Signs and banners can be fashioned inexpensively and will assist you in getting your message across. Please spread the word. Thank you. -phenn-

To share in this honoring of the dead, a group of about fifty people gathered at 5:00am in Downtown LA for a memorial commemorating the dead of 9/11. The Memorial had two parts. The...

Children were quiet. Teens were somber. Adults wept openly. The occasion was the annual candlelight vigil for victims of child abuse and neglect, “Wyoming’s littlest victims.” The Carey Junior High girls’ combined choir helped set the tone with songs about the innocence and dependence of children. With voices joined in a musical plea, they sang, “Come hear the cry of a child … Keep them safe, away from...
