Daily Kos: 9/11 Family Member: Crawford As a Turning Point

9/11 Family Member: Crawford As a Turning Point

In Oct. 2004 I flew to San Francisco to do a speaking event with Lila Lipscomb (of FARENHEIT 9/11 and a fellow member of GSFP with Cindy). Cindy came to the event that night to meet us. If I recall correctly, Cindy had just begun getting more and more active in opposing the war that had killed her son Casey. Lila, of course, was and still is very active as well.

After the event I was talking with some friends and fellow members of Sept. 11th Families for Peaceful Tomorrows (http://www.peacefultomorrows.org) and it was apparent to us, in watching Cindy and Lila speak to the press and people who attended the event, that they and other military families who had paid the worst price from an unnecessary war would be the catalysts who would bring an end to the occupation of Iraq. They would be able to ultimately succeed where us 9/11 families who were against the war had not been able to succeed.
