This evening I attended the Peace Vigil in Virginia Beach which was part of a national string of events this evening in support of Cindy Sheehan's ongoing protest outside of Dubya's ranch. The local event was attended by maybe 100 or so peace activists.
And there were counter-protesters as well. Three of them. But they had four signs.
In the grand political arena such demonstrations probably won't make any difference. But it was nonetheless a good (almost empowering) feeling to unite with like-minded people in the political process.
