Cindy –

Oh my goodness, look what has happened. Barely over a year ago you stood up to dubya, one mother, and asked “for what noble cause did
Casey die?” I will always remember you standing up and never backing
down, as our society became more and more oppressive, and more and more voices were silenced.

And we heard you and also asked your question, and then more
questions too, and we started feeling hope again. And now look what
has happened . . . The House and Senate will change hands, and that is a victory toward getting our country back.

Our work is only beginning and there is so much to do concerning
this war, veterans care, health care, the environment, social security,
voter rights, civil rights, education, and so on and on and on. And
while I know that change will come slowly, and this is not the
perfect Congress, I am thankful that some great obstacles to progress are gone.

The quotation from Margaret Mead that the Crawford Peace House
displays is so true: “Never doubt that a small group of committed
citizens can change the world. Indeed, it’s the only thing that ever
has.”

You lit the spark! You lit the way! You built it! And there is hope
in the land!

Love and Peace,
Patrice
