Every week for the past 5 1/2 years I have been participating in a sidewalk vigil in downtown Salt Lake. We have signs, flags and sometimes do special things for certain events. We have a fluctuation of participants each week – we’ve had 50 and we’ve had one. We vigil in all weather every week.
We mostly get positive responses but we do get a percentage of the typical, unintelligent “Get a job!”, “Get a life!”, “We love Bush” stuff. Sometimes we get things thrown at us. It’s also amazing how angry some people get at us just over the sign we are holding.
Here is a photo of a vigil participant from last week:
