Gathering of Eagles: "Posted On: June 28, 2008 at 9:02 PM By: Chris Hill
Our very own Blue Star mother, and Band of Mothers Founder Beverly Perlson, is heading back to the nation's capital to turn up the heat on Speaker Pelosi and the rest of Congress. For several months now, she has stood on the corner in front of the Canon Office Building during high profile votes.
On 8, 9, and 10 July she will be back with patriotic music and signs telling Congress to do the right thing concerning our brave warriors in the desert. We are asking any of you in the D.C. area to consider giving up a few hours one of those days. We recognize that it is a Tuesday through Thursday, work days for those of us who pay for the machinery of the country. Bev will be out there from 0900 to 1700 hrs though come rain or come shine.
Please consider a few hours to support Bev and the brave troops who make our way of life possible. I will personally take the train in one afternoon to stand with her. I've always said three things:
1) I'll never ask any of you to do anything I won't do, 2) We don't all need to do every thing, we just all need to do one thing and 3) Not only would the men and women in the desert do it for you, They Already Are.
Let's show those brave warriors, and the honorable members of Congress just how much we care. Thank you all for your never ending service to the cause. Manchu
