Antiwar Candlelight Vigil



Antiwar Candlelight Vigil
Originally uploaded by danielgreene.

I’m posting this photo to commemorate the efforts made four years ago by American citizens to show the U.S. government that its people were against going to war with Iraq. This vigil was sponsored by MoveOn.org, and it took place in Balboa Park in San Diego, California. Sadly, it’s been over four years since then, and so many thousands have died, so many billions have been squandered, and so many people worldwide have been turned off by Americans. But, “It’s better to light a candle than to curse the darkness,” eh?

I submitted this to a photo contest after the protest. I never heard anything about it that I recall. I do think it captures a moment well, though.
