Death

This post will be very quick as I don't have much time (I am still having to use library computers). Having said that I felt that these two things were important and needed to be posted.

Mother of the Civil Rights Era, Rosa Parks, has died at her home in Detroit, she was 92. The former seamstress will be remembered most for refusing to give up her seat on a bus in Montgomery, Alabama, in 1955. Her arrest and subsepuent conviction touched off the 13 month Montgomery bus boycott. The story says that she was tired and didn't know what she was doing, but she had a past history helping with voter registration and other civil rights acts. In an interview later, she stated that she knew exactly what she was trying to do by getting arrested.

The 2000th American soldier was killed today. Demonstrations and vigils will be happening all over the United States to express the fact that the people of this country vehemently disagree with this war and want our soldiers, who are friends and family to return home immediately.

While I often appreciate your posts even though we tend to disagree on a handful of issues, I take offense to you claiming that "the people of this country vehementyly disagree with this war...." I do not believe it is appropriate to presume to speak for all people as you appear to do. While I believe that is not what you intended to do, it is what has been written. I purposely left off the last part, as I do agree with wanting our friends and family who are serving to return safely.
Love ya,
Bob
