Virtual Vigil Friday for Kidnapped Journalist James Foley

JamesFoleyPicTomorrow is freelance journalist James Foley‘s 40th birthday. There will be candles, but sadly, they will be of a sort that do not signify a happy occasion.

Foley was abducted in northwest Syria on Thanksgiving Day 2012 by a group of unidentified gunman and has not been seen or heard from since. In support of an ongoing grassroots campaign to bring about his release, there will be vigils tomorrow night in the U.S. and various international locations:

Please join the Foley family this Friday in a virtual and actual vigil for peace and the safe return of James Foley, in honor of Jim’s 40th birthday!

October 18, 2013
Our Lady of the Holy Rosary
Rochester, NH at 6pm

As with previous, similar situations such as Laura Ling and Euna Lee in North Korea, the Facebook page for Foley has become a place where all sorts of concerned citizens are voicing their support. For those who would like to join the cause via Twitter Friday at 6 p.m. ET, the hashtag to use is #FreeJamesFoley.
