Nebraska Woman Will Join Texas Peace Protest

OMAHA, Neb. -- A Nebraska woman is joining the war protest in Texas.

Virginia Walsh picked up a banner at the Nebraskans for Peace office on her way out of town.

Cindy Sheehan, of Vacaville, Calif., is camped out near President George W. Bush's ranch in the Crawford, Texas, area. She wants to meet with Bush over the April 2004 death of her soldier son in Iraq.

Walsh will join hundreds of others who are in Crawford calling for an end to the war.

"This is costing us dearly," Walsh said. "It's a mistake. It appears to be endless. Please help. I'm called to go. Literally, I hear a call."

Walsh said she'll sleep in a tent, and if needed, she’ll stay in Crawford through Bush's month-long vacation.
