Peace of the Action: Open Letters from Bob McIlvaine, father of Bobby McIlvaine and Jon Gold
As many of you may already know, Cindy Sheehan and Jon Gold are in Washington protesting the wars in Afghanistan and Iraq. They, along with many other anti-war activists, are camping out at the Washington Monument.
It surely is not easy to “keep the flame of protest’ when the media and special interest groups fight us at every juncture. But, as Cindy and I both know all too well, life is precious and we have lost too, too many young lives already.
Cindy and Jon, I cannot be with you, but I am truly there in spirit. May God keep you safe.
Father of Bobby McIlvaine
On Monday morning, we are setting up Camp OUT NOW on the lawn of the Washington Memorial. I have chosen to partake in this because for 9 years we have tried to use the “system” to bring truth and accountability for the 9/11 attacks, and the “system” does not work.
I don’t know if you’ve noticed or not, but 9/11 is not being allowed in the courts. So I don’t know what option is left. Part of 9/11 Truth is being anti-war. That’s part of the reason we do what we do… or at least I’ve always thought it to be the case. That we are trying to end the “9/11 wars” by exposing the truth. I can’t think of a better place for 9/11 Truth to be than an event designed to end the wars. Knowledge is, after all, power. So… I will be using my knowledge of 9/11 to help end these hideous and illegal wars. We have too much blood on our hands to do nothing.
I hope that you will tell your friends and family to support what it is we are trying to do. 9/11 Truth will be represented at Camp OUT NOW. Cindy has already told me I will be speaking. Please come if you can, but more importantly, don’t let people forget we are out there. Please.
Thank you for your time.
