In recognition and remembrance

Aspen Times writer

Dear Editor:American soldiers are still dying in Iraq. Their bodies are being returned home in what amounts to secrecy. Some of your fellow citizens believe that they deserve recognition and remembrance.We, members of Wake Up Now, meet at 8 o’clock each Monday morning, rain or shine, at the Carbondale Town Hall flagpole. We lower the flag to half-mast, in compliance with the Jan. 13, 2004, proclamation of the Carbondale Town Council. It remains so all day.Each one of us reads eight to 10 names from the full list of names of the coalition soldiers who have given their lives, their futures, in the service of their fellows.We invite everyone and anyone to come and join us. It can be a prayer or a meditation or a protest. Come join us.Peter and Jony LarroweWake Up Now membersCarbondale
