You keep tring to justify our leaders actions, but there is no justification, it must be stopped, OUR LEADERS MUST BE STOPPED!

My only child, my son, Justin, is a sergeant in the Massachusetts National Guard, and stationed in Samarra, Iraq, since early April. I carry an 8 by10 picture of him on the rear right window of my car with a sign that reads, "Bush lied. The War is not over. Support our troops. Bring my son home!" Very few people speak to me about about Justin's picture. Most people look at it, avert their eyes and pass by, carefully avoiding eye contact if I happen to be in the car.

In a democracy, the government serves the people. In America, the people serve the government.
I watched your press conference today, crying uncontrollably at the words of the families whose children are still in Iraq. I amstill weeping as I'm typing this letter. I am so confused, so scared, so devastated at what is happening today. Words or actions could not express my intense, burning anger when I see President Bush vacationing yet again at his Texas ranch - all the while the soldiers he loves to exploit are dying and suffering.

My son is in Iraq, and we want to thank you for your efforts. Zac is a son, husband, and father who is much beloved, and he is very opposed to this war. We are outraged at the lies and manipulation of this administration. Nothing is as it appears
Statement On the Second Anniversary of 9/11
Two years ago today our loved ones were tragically murdered in an act of terror that shook the United States and the world. In the time since their deaths, as we continue our personal paths of grieving, we are comforted by the thoughtful and compassionate response of people all over the world who have offered sympathy and support to the victims of these terrible attacks. But much about the US government’s approach to responding to our loved ones’ deaths stands in stark contrast to the common sense words and comforting actions of ordinary people. On this two-year anniversary, we stop to reflect on the dangerous course of current policies and to call for a new approach to 9/11 that is focused on bringing about true security and justice.
