Afghanistan Memorial Vigil – Remembering those silenced
A candlelit vigil and march to mark the ninth year of the continuing war and conflict in Afghanistan sponsored by the Northland Anti-War Coalition and CSS Center For Justice Living.
Beginning in the Duluth Rose Garden near Leif Erikson Park, the night will start with words from local religious leaders. Following this we will march down the Lakewalk to place a memorial, in remembrance of the Afghan civilians and Coalition soldiers who have died, between the Korean War and Vietnam War Memorials. Here we will be led in song by Sara Thomsen and have a moment of silence.
This is a time for everyone to join together to remember those that have died in the ongoing war outside of any partisan conflict or ideological struggle.
NOTE: Please bring photos, flowers, or other items to place at the memorial if you would like.
