So How's That Surge Working Now, Mister Bush?

I found it therapeutic being with all of you today, at the end of this week filled with such bad news from Iraq. I fear that things are going to get a lot worse there in the near future. If you have a few minutes, take the time to read this account from a U.S. soldier on the ground in Baghdad. How in the world could we not protest on this young man's behalf?
***********************
It was a good crowd today, with some of you returning after having been to the candlelight vigil, and others who found us for the first time today. Thank you all so much for coming, and we look forward to seeing you again. I'm hopeful that our numbers will grow as the weather breaks, because we are going to need every single one of us and many more to push for an end to this madness. Here are the pics from today, with thanks, of course, to billyb and Nancy.

4,007

It's just been a couple of hours since we protested, and the fatalities have already gone up by two. 4,007. Things are deteriorating in Iraq, despite the glowing reports we hear from the Cheney McBush cabal.

I'll be posting the pictures soon, so check back in a bit.

Peace, Pam

Photos From Saturday, Before There Were 4,000...

I'm saddened and sickened by these latest four deaths. About all of them. I usually update the number sign only on Saturday mornings, right before we protest, but I updated it today. I had to paint over the entire thing, covering all four digits with white paint for the very first time since we started. 4,000. The sign is on my lawn. As horrific as this gruesome milestone is, it doesn't even take into account the number of troops coming home with brutal injuries, the hundreds of thousands of Iraqis killed, or the millions of refugees we've created. God help us. Please come on Saturday to stand for peace.
