Organizers of the weekly Peace Vigil on the Green in Bristol invite members of the public to come show their support and compassion to those suffering in the Ukrainian war. The vigil takes place Fridays from 5 to 5:30 p.m. at the corner of North and West streets.
In promoting the Bristol Peace Vigil, Starksboro resident Katie Antos-Ketcham quoted a message from Quakers: “In this time of great uncertainty, we stand in solidarity with all the people in the region whose lives are being torn apart by war. We must be persistent in calling for solutions that protect human life and diminish suffering.”
She also offered these words from Sen. Bernie Sanders: “At the end of the day, it will be that common humanity, based on the principles of justice, that brings us together and enables us to prevail.”
