Well I get pretty discouraged at times but this ground swell of support for Cindy has given me hope. Last night I saw a cross-section of America. Senior citizens, mothers with children, couples, veterans. Even Liz Carpenter (former staffer in the Johnson administration) was there in a wheelchair. Regular people whose conscience is calling them to make a stand.
Speaking of images, there are a bunch of great photos from the vigils posted on moveon.org including one that I took.
