Ithaca Mothers travel to Crawford Texas to stand with Cindy Sheehan

A group of mothers are traveling from Ithaca to Crawford Texas to join Cindy Sheehan in her vigil at the gates of George Bush's ranch.

The mothers are Jeannie Burns, mother of a teenage daughter, Jessica Stewart, married to Danny Burns of the St. Patrick Four and mother of two young sons, Teresa Grady, one of the St. Patrick Four and mother of a teenage son, and Marisol Valle, mother of an infant son.

They will be leaving Sunday morning. They are part of a larger contingent traveling from Ithaca to Crawford.

"Cindy Sheehan has experienced every mother's worst nightmare," said Jessica Stewart. "How many more mothers will have to go through this before our government will end this unnecessary and illegal war."

"Our hearts are with all mothers, Iraqi or American, who have lost children in this terrible war," said Jeannie Burns
