Cindy Sheehan got arrested in Washington. We here in the Republican stronghold of Bakersfield, CA read all the names of the dead service men and women. Our turnout was larger than expected, 35-50 people, families, young and old came. We took turns reading the names state by state, city by city. It took us a little over two hours. It was also the lead story on 3 of the 4 networks in my redneck city.
It felt good to have that bond with complete strangers again. It felt good to know people across the US felt the same way and were doing the same thing.
It was fucked up that we even had to do it in the first place. Less than 150 service men and women died TAKING control of the country. All the rest have died since Bush declared we won the war.
Bring em home jackass, dont make us read another 2000 names.
