Except for this week. I'm asking that we turn out as many people as we can, our own "September Surge." We have got to stand up and say NO MORE FUNDING, NO NEW "PLAN." WE ARE OUT OF PATIENCE AND WE WANT OUR LEADERS TO
Please come Saturday and bring an army of protesters, or at least a new person or two. Wear orange if you can, for visibility and as a show of solidarity. If you can't wear orange, come anyway. I'll give you an orange ribbon. Just be there. One of the reasons I think our protests have been so successful is because it's been, by design, low pressure. Come when you can, no questions asked, no RSVP, and everyone is always welcomed with open arms. This week is the exception...I'm nagging. (In a nice way, I hope!) I just think it's so important that we have a huge presence at this moment time, when Iraq is back on the agenda in D.C. We cannot let the Democrats capitulate or compromise this time. I plan to forward pictures to our Senators and Congressman, to let them know that we expect, that we demand, results, so feel free to bring a sign saying exactly what you want them to hear from you. Of course we will still have our usual signs available for everyone, but if you have a special message, bring it. Now is the time to stand up.
Please forward this far and wide, and make some phone calls. I hope I've convinced you to help make this the biggest protest yet, and I truly appreciate all your efforts. I'm honored to know, and to stand with, such a dedicated, committed group of citizens. Thank you, thank you, thank you. See you Saturday...I'll be the one wearing orange! ~: )
