Global Candlelight Vigil for Peace: March 16 at 7:00 PM

Posted by under Breaking News on 16 March 2003

Archbishop Desmond Tutu, Reverend Robert Edgar, and other religious leaders call for candlelight vigils around the world on March 16th to say yes to peace -- and no to war with Iraq.

More then 4381 vigils have been scheduled in 114 countries.

It appears that the Bush administration will fail to win Security Council support for war, and world public opinion has been a key part of this.

Archbishop Desmond Tutu and many faith-based organizations, are calling for this global vigil.

Begin a rolling wave of candlelight gatherings that will quickly cross the globe. It's up to you to make this happen. Today they are asking individuals, like you, to organize a vigil in each community.

They hope that thousands of small groups around the world will be inspired to come together and stand for peace.

It's time for the world to come together in this moment of darkness and rekindle the light of reason -- and of hope.

It's time to renew our commitment to building a positive and peaceful world for our children.

The candlelight vigil will sweep around the globe on the evening of March 16th.

Together, we will lead the nations of the world away from an unnecessary war and toward a peaceful and prosperous future.

This is a key moment in history. Be a part of it.


Light a candle and pray for peace with your family and friends.

Show some love,
