“Using music to unite people who are against the war is perfect!
Music was a great escape for my son when he served in Iraq.
Make some noise, have some fun, let the troops know you support them,
and let’s bring them home now!”
–Gold Star Mom Karen Meredith, mother of Lt. Ken Ballard, killed in Iraq.
“Hello dearest friends. Greetings to all.
This is beautiful and efficient work you are doing. I will be marching with you in thoughts.
Thank you with all my heart on behalf of my son, and on behalf of our
children, our troops. Thank you for wanting to BRING THEM HOME NOW.”
–Gold Star Mom Nadia McCaffrey, mother of Sgt. Patrick McCaffrey,
killed in Iraq.
“Mom, I don’t know why we are here. We are not rebuilding anything.
We are not helping anyone. We shouldn’t be here.” –Sgt. Patrick McCaffrey,
(In a June 16, 2004 email to his mother, six days before he was killed in Iraq.)
