“Each time a person stands up for an ideal, or acts to improve the lot of others. . . they send forth a ripple of hope, and crossing each other from a million different centers of energy and daring, those ripples build a current that can sweep down the mightiest walls of oppression and resistance.”
– Robert F. Kennedy
Anti-war protester Cindy Sheehan is surrounded by cameramen and reporters as she holds up a sign for President Bush as his motorcade passes on the way to a political fundraiser near his ranch in Crawford, Texas, Friday, Aug. 12, 2005.
From Cindy’s diary on Kos (of course):
Not only can one person make a difference, but one person, with millions behind her can make history. I really believe that this movement that began in Crawford, Texas (does the irony escape anyone) is going to grow and grow and transform the world. Like I said last night in my blog: hope is blossoming in Crawford, because WE have the power.
Today was George Bush’s accountability moment, and he lost. Two young ladies from San Diego drove all night to get to the rally and they had to leave tonight to get back home. One of them said: “Wow, we can drive all the way from San Diego just to meet you and he can’t even come down to the end of his driveway to meet with you.”
George Bush: you work for me. I pay your salary. Come out and talk to me.
Since I know dubs won’t be coming to talk to her any time soon, I plan to go down to DC when she brings the caravan to my backdoor (figuratively speaking). With all my heart, I believe in what she’s doing, what all of those involved with her are doing. Bless them.
In other news, I’m bored. House is in chaos, lots to do for other stuff annnnnd I don’t do much of it. Wheee. So what else is new, I know.
Duty is (finally) home! YEY!
