Martin Sheen visits Camp Casey

http://crawfordupdate.blogspot.com/

Following our wedding earlier in the day, Martin Sheen visited Camp Casey and led a Catholic rosary that incorporated the reading of the names of 50 U.S. servicepersons killed in Iraq. Interspersed in the reading of the names, a chorus sang religious hymns from many different faiths. Upon taking the stage, Martin Sheen declared that many had been silent far too long about what's happening and he hoped that Cindy would be the catalyst for changing that. After posing for a photo op with members of Iraq Veterans Against the War, he joined the nightly Camp Casey sunset taps ceremony.

In this day and age it takes an awful lot to get the people to speak up and pressure their politicians. We are one or two votes from a demand for the papers, e-mails, phone records on DSM... Please tell us what else people can do to get together and pressure politicians to begin doing their job in Congress. Can we pressure those who do not represent us directly? If so how? Thank you for this site.
