Letters to the Editor, Circleville Herald

September 2005

Dear Editor,

We thank the literally hundreds of motorists who honked in support of our
Vigil for Peace in Iraq on 2 September at the Pickaway County Courthouse. I
urge those who honked and all who mourn the tragedy of this war, bred of 
post 9/11 fear and misjudgment, to write your congressmen and Senators to
support the bipartisan "Homeward Bound Act", House Joint Resolution #55
calling for withdrawal of US forces from Iraq.

  Introduced by Rep. Walter Jones, Republican, former supporter of the
Iraq war and original coiner of the term 'freedom fries";  the Homeward
Bound Act allows us to begin the national self-examination we must undergo
to recover our national character, damaged from having launched this
unnecessary conflict.

Our vigils will continue the First Friday of every month, 6:00 p.m. (5:00 p.m. through winter) at the
Courthouse and every Thursday, 6:00 p.m. at 9804 State Route 22 east. Thank you
for honking in support.

Brad Cotton
Circleville, Ohio
