October 31: While some of the weekly vigils went on hiatus tonight, the Glendale vigil (at Brand & Broadway) proceeded as usual—except participants were encouraged to come in costume. Also, candy was handed out for a time. When the candy ran out, pencils publicizing the Glendale vigil were distributed. Flyers were passed, too, announcing an upcoming showing of the film Afghanistan (see: http://www.glendalepeacevigil.org).
By the time I arrived, the two-hour vigil was over halfway through. There were about eight participants, but a lot of passerby stopped and joined us. At one point, about five children, aged eight or nine, came and held peace signs.
Generally, people seemed glad to see us. (In a few cases, passersby seemed bewildered at first. Maybe they thought we we war supporters dressed as peaceniks for Halloween?)
One man asked, “Where do we go from here?” Various replies were given, including "impeachment" and “the answer is blowing in the wind.”
