Cairo- People in Grady County are lifting their voices and bowing their heads in prayer for the troops and the families they have left behind. Renee Garrett has two sons in the Middle east. She says this vigil helps her cope.

Garrett adds, "It's nice to know people care." Betty Baxter's son is serving in the third Infantry in Iraq, and Laura Lu Tyson Porter's son, Travis, is in the National Guard. They say seeing hundreds of candles in support of their children gives them an inner peace

Songs, prayers and lights of love helped Grady countians strengthen their patriotism and respect for troops sacrificing for our country.

Organizers of the vigil plan to start meeting once a month so families who have loved ones in the Middle East will have a constant support system.
