Joette Hayashigawa, of Thetford, continues her weekly vigil, begun in March, 2022, standing for two hours every Friday on Main Street in Norwich, Vt., holding her “Support Ukraine” sign as commuters cross the Ledyard Bridge on August 25, 2023. “It’s something I just feel like I have to do,” she said. “I don’t know if it’s helping anything.” She fears support will wane as the conflict drags on, but said she makes connections with people who honk and wave. “It makes me think people know the difference between right and wrong.” (Valley News - James M.
