Memorial Day

May 28, 2008

Over the course of the Memorial Day weekend about 30 people joined Nancy as she rewalked the Iraq Names Project route. On Memorial Day, as a last act, she ghosted in Sheehan at Peace Park. Last summer Casey Sheehan’s name fell right at Peace Park in a moment of synchrosity.

At the start of Memorial Day Nancy was joined by some neighbors, good friend Nikki and Kate Powers & Steve Einhorn.┬áKate Powers wrote a now famous song, Travis John, about Travis Bradach-Nall, one of the first Oregonians to die in Iraq. Nancy ghosted in Travis’ name when she got to Grant Park, the neighborhood where he grew up.

While rewalking the route we were surprised to see names that nancy wrote months ago still visible along NE Broadway.

Nancy will be back at NE Multnomah and NE 13th on Friday May 30th, 7:15am, drawing names.
