Cindy Sheehan in Charlottesville May 17

*Cindy Sheehan and Ann Wright to Speak in Charlottesville, VA*

At 7 p.m. ET on Wednesday, May 17, Cindy Sheehan and Ann Wright will speak on the Iraq War and answer questions at an event in Charlottesville, Virginia, organized by the Charlottesville Center for Peace and Justice, and affiliate of United for Peace and Justice. < >

*Cindy Sheehan* is co-founder of Gold Star Families for Peace and the mother of Army Spc. Casey Sheehan, KIA April 4, 2004, Baghdad. In August, 2005, she camped out- side President Bush's home in an effort to ask him for what noble cause her son was sent to die.

*Ann Wright* resigned from the U.S. State Department in protest the day the Iraq War began. She had served as a diplomat for 16 years and received the State Department's Award for Heroism. She also served for 29 years in the US Army/Army Reserves and attained the rank of Colonel.

The event will begin with a performance by Terri Allard, a singer/song- writer with an extraordinary talent for capturing the human spirit in her songs. With power-packed vocals and infectious energy she has the uncanny ability to move her audiences to pin-drop silence.

*WHERE :* Martin Luther King Jr. Performing Arts Center, 1400 Melbourne Rd Charlottesville, Va.

*WHEN :* 7 p.m. ET, Wednesday, May 17, 2006

Suggested Donation - $5.00 (No one turned away)

2. She will rally the base.
You know, OUR base, the DEMOCRATIC base!!!

When are we going to stop trying to win over the right???? THEY ARE NOT GOING TO VOTE FOR OUR CANDIDATES!* More important, we don't need them to. If we could get good democratic voter turn out, Virginia would be blue by now.

*You many argue that lots of "them" voted for Warner and Kaine. But it is my experience both in rural and urban Virginia that there are many, MANY closet liberals posing as right-wing because here in the south "what the neighbors think" is very important.
