Peninsula Peace & Justice to Remember Lives Lost in Ongoing US Wars

BLUE HILL–On Saturday, November 13, Peninsula Peace & Justice will host a gathering at the Iraq War Dead Memorial to recognize the deaths of both civilians and US soldiers during the ongoing US wars. They will also help prepare the memorial field for winter. The ceremony will begin at 10 a.m. in the field located between the Blue Hill Public Library and the First Congregational Church. In this field, for six years, Peninsula Peace & Justice has remembered those who have died in US wars, deaths continuing to mount in Iraq, Afghanistan, and Pakistan.

Brooksville artist Robert Shetterly, whose portrait series Americans Who Tell the Truth now has more than 150 portraits of truth-tellers, will be the featured speaker. Members of the community are invited to help pull up the white flags and to share personal reflections. For information, please call 374-3636.
