As the president and Congress debate a possible military strike against Syria, a group of local residents decided to voice their opposition by staging a silent vigil Sept. 9 in downtown Lewes. More than three dozen people showed up with signs and flashlights to stand on the sidewalk beside the Zwaanendael Museum between 7 and 8 p.m.

Organizer Deb Schultz said many people are concerned about problems in the Middle East. She said most people are afraid of inevitable repercussions following an attack. "No one knows what the consequences will be," she said.
