Braving mid-thirties temperatures and a cold, steady rain, a group of 21 of us held a vigil this evening in Gill, Massachusetts, a very small town on the banks of the Connecticut River.
The vigil was held at the Turners Memorial, which is a big rock with an inscription on it describing how Captain William Turner massacred 300 Native Americans in 1676. Sadly,the atrocities continue to this day, don't they?
I hope with everything I have that we won't need to hold this vigil again next year.
I'm going to warm my toes and put the kettle on now. Peace.
