Dear Concerned Citizen,

On Saturday, President Bush went on a bike ride. According to news =
reports, his schedule also included "a nap, some fishing, and some =
reading."1 But President Bush refused to meet with Cindy Sheehan, the =
grieving mother who lost her son in Iraq. Cindy is fast becoming an =
international spokeswoman against the war. But now, it's up to all of us =
to show that she's not alone in demanding answers from the president.

Cindy has asked supporters to start candlelight vigils in our =
communities to remind people of the terrible price of war. So, MoveOn, =
TrueMajority and Democracy for America have teamed up to organize =
nationwide "Vigils for Cindy Sheehan" (and for all military and gold =
star families) on this coming Wednesday, August 17th, starting at 7:30 =
PM local time.

Since Saturday, folks have agreed to host close to 300 vigils, but we =
need to do better than that. Hosting a vigil doesn't take much time, but =
it'll offer lots of people in your community a way to connect. We've =
prepared a kit that walks you through exactly what you need to do. Can =
you host a vigil in your community?

Check here to see if there is a vigil in your neighborhood already.

If not, click on the link below to host a vigil.

http://www.moveon.org/r?r=3D837&id=3D

When you host a vigil, you'll fill out an online form indicating where =
your vigil will be located. Then, MoveOn, True Majority and Democracy =
for America members in your community will log on to our website and be =
able to find your vigil and attend it. We've made it easy for you to =
manage your vigil, with tools to limit the size of the vigil, =
communicate with people who will be attending, and more.

Otherwise, you can find a vigil to attend in your neighborhood at:

http://political.moveon.org/event/cindyvigils/?id=3D5892-6378153-gjs58LIH=
VmCHo6ikiUmxqA&t=3D4

Here is what Cindy said about the vigils: "I invite mothers everywhere =
to stand up with me so that no more of our sons and daughters lose their =
lives for a war based on lies and deception. Join me in demanding the =
truth-and an end to the war-by organizing vigils across the country, =
before one more mother's child is lost."

If you're an Iraq veteran, or a family member of a soldier, it'd be =
especially meaningful for you to join us. Bring a photo of your loved =
one to remind all of us what is at stake. Two great organizations, Gold =
Star Families for Peace and Military Families Speak Out, are leading the =
way to make the voices of military families heard loud and clear. =
Thousands of people are already doing a lot-organizing events and =
more-to help bring Cindy's stand to communities across America. Will you =
help too?

Hosting a vigil is really simple. All you have to do is choose the =
location, invite some friends and get some candles. If you can't host, =
it's really easy to attend one-just RSVP, get some candles and show up.

These vigils aren't rallies or places to give long-winded speeches. They =
are moments to solemnly come together and mark the sacrifice of Cindy =
and other families. We're asking people to gather for just a half hour =
or so. We've put together an easy way for you to sign-up to host a vigil =
or attend one. Once you register your vigil, we'll invite other MoveOn =
members in your community to join your vigil.

If you can't host, we welcome everyone to attend a candlelight vigil. =

If we all join together and do our part we can show the sort of public =
support for Cindy the president can't ignore. Thanks for all you do.
