WHAT DOES 2,651 (SO FAR) LOOK LIKE?

Please make every effort to join us at the NUMBER THE DEAD vigil and demonstration.

On Sunday, September 17, from 10-11 am, in New York City, we will be joining the NUMBER THE DEAD line of people holding pictures of the soldiers who have died in Iraq. The line will stretch down Fifth Avenue from 98th Street to 8th Street.

We all need to see what the number 2,651 dead (as of Sunday, September 3) looks like. We hope you will spread the word (a flyer is attached) and join us on the line.

Here is the information we have received from the organizers.
******************************************************************************
NUMBER THE DEAD – VIGIL & DEMONSTRATION – NYC – SEPTEMBER 17 10-11 AM

On Sunday September 17th there will be 2700 concerned persons lining the east sidewalk of 5th Avenue from 8th Street to 98th Street in NYC. The number corresponds to the number of US soldiers that have died in Iraq.

Each person will hold a poster board with the name, age and hometown of every fallen US soldier. In addition, each block will have a poster marking the number of Iraqis who have been killed. Each block will represent 1000 Iraqis. From 10-11a.m. we will stand together in a silent vigil and demonstration, called NUMBER THE DEAD. For more information, please visit our website: www.numberthedead.com

IF YOU WANT TO PARTICIPATE
If you want to be part of the line on September 17th, you MUST send us an e-mail at:
numberthedead@mac.com

You must sign up to line up! We need a count to make sure that we have enough volunteers to represent the 2700 soldiers. In your email, please provide a contact number. Once you have signed up, you will receive more details about the event.

Please support the cause of remembering and honoring the US soldiers and Iraqis whom we have lost in this war. This project will only be successful if we have every soldier represented. It's time we take a stand and illustrate what the number 2600+ looks like alive.

Hope to see you on the line.
