Christmas at war

"It's one week before Christmas. 2,948 American families will be missing a family member this Christmas due to this immoral war in Iraq. According to a recent study it is estimated that around 650,000 Iraqis have also died since the war begin. This Christmas we need to all take time out of our busy holiday schedules to think about those who have been killed in the Iraq war.

It is up to us to make sure that this coming year brings many changes to help get our country back on track. Christmas celebrates the birth of Jesus Christ - who taught love, compassion, understanding, and most of all PEACE. Let this holiday remind us that peace is a possible goal and that we have much work to do in order to achieve it."

That was well done. She should be proud of what she did to bring the movement forward more. The point was loud and clear.

Isn't this wonderful! I'm such a big fan of Ava and I hope this video gets so much play that it ends up as number 1 on YouTube.

This is so moving.
John, would you do me a huge favor, please? Would you drop by my Blogger's Calendar and let me know what you think. Right now, it's only the page/pixs layout, the calendar I will add later. The only pix missing is March (Mike in Philly) but he promised to send me his pix tomorrow.

As Michael Moore said two years ago: "The kids are getting it right".

And, considering she's from the deep-red South. . .I'm so hopeful.

Peace from a 16 year! And meanwhile, people that are supposed to be grown men and women are pressing still for this illegal war. Truly from the mouths of babes. Ava is a special young lady with a far broader vision than any of those morons in the WH.
