Friends War Memorial

Charlottesville Friends have established a memorial to the 80 Virginians who have died in President Bush’s war in Iraq, Bryan McKenzie wrote in yesterday’s Daily Progress. They’ll display eighty pairs of combat boots to provide a sense of scale of the loss. The family of every soldier was contacted to obtain their blessing. There will be no signs or chanting — just the boots. It will be on display at the County Office Building on Friday, at the First Amendment chalkboard on Saturday and at Brown College on Sunday.
