On May 27, 2004 the National Council of Churches reported, ""I was finally able to cry."  That's what a young woman attending an interfaith memorial service here today for all who have been killed in the Iraq conflict told a service leader. The emotional service, sponsored by the National Council of Churches USA and held at National City Christian Church, drew people of faith from various walks of life to grieve the dead, receive comfort and dedicate themselves to become agents of peace."
