A Mother's Day in Portland

Some from CodePink Portland -

(Cristy, Karen & a very somber Me)

On Mother's Day, over 75 people lined up along a park and golf course near Portland, Oregon.

They held no signs of protest, they didn't chant or sing - they were silent.

Around their necks were the faces of the dead due to this illegal occupation and slaughter.

Many were faces of Iraqi children.

This incredible, active woman has been arrested so many times.

Cop wanted to know who "was in charge of us all"... we said we were in charge of ourselves.

We are MOTHERS and we stand for PEACE!

Mothers of the world unite... don't let our children be killed or turned into killers.

    Looks like your mother's day was well spent, Janet. I hope that were able to enjoy some time with your kids.

    I, too, hope your Mother's Day went well, DJ. I don't know how often you get over to check comments, but wanted to leave you a warm message of support for all you do! Olivia mentioned the other night that you had asked about me. I appreciate that, as these past few months have had their big downs for me in various ways, but spring is here and the flowers are blooming and there's way too much to get done in the garden ... so that takes my mind off things pretty well. Stop over at my place any time and enjoy a few flowers on my nickel (LOL) ... it's the least I can offer you.

    Keep your energy up, your love flowing and you can only come out on top in the long run! xxoo
