‘GRABS MY HEART’

Other vigil attendees hoped that more citizens will take a stand. 

“People have lost the sense that democracy only works if we work it,” said Elizabeth Sarfaty of Malone. “If you’re not part of the solution, you’re really part of the problem.

“When I hear the president say we have to punish people it really grabs my heart,” she said.

Cassie Cayea of Plattsburgh said she thinks it’s the citizen’s job to stand up against war. 

“We don’t need another war that will continue on indefinitely,” she said. “Those wars are not helping me, helping you or helping anyone here.”
