This woman lost her son Casey to the Iraq War on April 4, 2004 and is now camped out a few miles from Bush's Crawford Ranch where he is on vacation for five weeks. (must be nice huh).
Camp Casey, as it is now being called, is attracting Peace activists from across the country. Thanks to kossack periphrastik there are several ways you can help this brave woman stand up to the Bush War Council and demand answers on the Iraq debacle.
Whether you can go or not, please read on to see what else you can do to help.
How you can help
Be sure to contact both national and local media for this story. A good idea is to call your local TV station before you go, and tell them where you are going and why. Offer to report updates to them from the scene. Tell your local media to cover the stories of local families who have lost children in the war and want answers from Bush.

Let There Be Peace on Earth and let it begin with me.
Let There Be Peace on Earth, the peace that was meant to be!
With God as our Father, brothers all are we.
Let me walk with my brother in perfect harmony.
Let peace begin with me. Let this be the moment now.
With ev'ry breath I take, let this be my solemn vow;
To take each moment and live each moment in peace eternally!
Let there be peace on earth and let it begin with me!
