I am a convinced “vigiler”. I am convinced that they do have an effect even though it can be imperceptible at times. I am convinced that vigils are a simple and easy way that anti-war people can engage the public and create dialogue with those who do not share our views. How many times do you hear people say we are always “preaching to the choir” at progressive events and that there is no outreach to the mainstream. Well vigils are that outreach and I urge everyone to support them.
