I attended the forum on Iraq with Sen. Lisa Murkowski and had the privilege of hearing many community members speak about the war. I found it inspiring, emotional and powerful that so many eloquent, passionate and caring people are calling for positive change for our country. In particular, I would like to state my unity with Veterans for Peace members in Juneau who, among others, bravely shared their wisdom with us. I hope that Sen. Murkowski was able to truly hear these public voices and our desires for liberty and justice. I also hope that she finds it in her heart to take a stance for peace and protecting all people's civil liberties and human rights.
