Honor the 2,000 American military members killed in Iraq and demand and end to the war.

Join fellow TrueMajority members and attend a vigil in your area Wednesday, October 26th, at 6:30 P.M.

Dear Trish,

Another painful milestone has been reached in the war: 2,000 American servicemen and servicewomen have
been killed as a result of our nation's misguided attack on Iraq.1 Tens of thousands more young Americans
have been wounded, and it is estimated that more than 100,000 Iraqi civilians have died from this
unnecessary war.2

The staggering number of casualties is overwhelming, and it's important to remember that our fallen
soldiers are sons and daughters, brothers and sisters, family, friends, and neighbors. We can honor these
heroes by expressing our sorrow and demanding that our government level with us about how we can stop this
senseless killing.

TrueMajority members have been active in opposing the war in Iraq, and now it's time to come together
again. The Win Without War coalition--including Democracy for America, MoveOn.org, and TrueMajority--is
organizing candlelight vigils around the country Wednesday, October 26th, at 6:30 P.M. in commemoration of
the 2,000 members of America's armed forces killed in Iraq.

To find an existing vigil in your community or to create a new one, go to:


Then work with us as we increase our efforts to get all Americans to pay attention to the daily pain of
new casualties.3

Wednesday evening, join fellow Americans across the country in lighting candles to honor our fallen
soldiers. By coming together, we can channel our collective anguish and anger into action and demand an
end to the occupation of Iraq and the loss of life.

With hope,

The TrueMajority Team
