I’m not going anywhere. I’m standing up, which is how one speaks in opposition in a civilized world. – Ainsley Hayes
Never doubt that a small, group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world. Indeed, it is the only thing that ever has. – Margaret Mead
Taken from this story:
Cindy Sheehan, co-founder of Gold Star Families for Peace and mother of U.S. soldier who was slain in Iraq, called for President Bush on Saturday, Aug. 6, to return all troops in Iraq to the United States immediately. Although she failed to meet with Bush face-to-face at his Crawford-area ranch, Sheehan did speak with two of the president’s aides. She still vowed to remain in Crawford to meet with the President.
Sheehan is moving toward the ranch at the second checkpoint and says, “In the name of 1,828 soldiers that should be alive, I’m going to go see the President. He killed my son.”
Dear Friends and Supporters,
George Bush said speaking about the dreadful loss of life in Iraq in August: (08/03/05): “We have to honor the sacrifices of the fallen by completing the mission.” “The families of the fallen can be assured that they died for a noble cause.”
In reaction to these two assinine and hurtful statements, members of Gold Star Families for Peace (GSFP) are going to George’s vacation home in Crawford, Tx this Saturday, August 6th at 11:00 am to confront him on these two statements.
1. We want our loved ones sacrifices to be honored by bringing our nation’s sons and daughters home from the travesty that is Iraq IMMEDIATELY, since this war is based on horrendous lies and deceptions. Just because our children are dead, why would we want any more families to suffer the same pain and devastation that we are.
2. We would like for him to explain this “noble cause” to us and ask him why Jenna and Barbara are not in harm’s way, if the cause is so noble.
3. If George is not ready to send the twins, then he should bring our troops home immediately. We will demand a speedy withdrawal.
HONOR OUR LOVED ONE’S SACRIFICES: BRING OUR TROOPS HOME NOW!!!!
Georgie won’t come out, of course. He’s much too busy clearing brush from his faux ranch. I don’t expect him to do anything but hide. Puppets don’t function well without their “brain”, do they, Mr. Rove and Mr. Cheney?
I send only good thoughts and energy to Cindy Sheehan and all those who are out there in the hot, hot Texas sun. Thank you for making a stand.
