a total disgrace 

i signed a petition last night and received an email to forward to others informing them of the petition. i already emailed this to my friends and family, but i'm going to post it here so others can sign as well. here's the text of the email:

Dear friend,

I am increasingly concerned that while American casualties in Iraq increase daily, President Bush is turning a cold shoulder to the grieving families of slain American servicemen and women. As of November 17th, 422 American soldiers have been killed in Iraq, over 2,200 have been wounded and there are an average of 35 attacks on Americans every day, yet President Bush has not attended the funeral or memorial of a single American killed in action.

I just signed a petition calling on President Bush to honor our fallen soldiers and attend at least one funeral or memorial for our soldiers killed in Iraq. I hope you will sign it, too. I want our Commander-in-Chief to honor our American servicemen and women who pay the ultimate price in the service of their country.

It only took me a few seconds to sign the petition and I'm hoping you'll sign it, too. Click here to sign the petition.

P.S. Please forward this message to anyone that you know who might be interested.

Thank you.

shortly after i sent this message out last night, my father-in-law called to tell me that he signed. he said it was funny that i sent the message last night, because yesterday president bush visited families of british soldiers who were killed in iraq. why can't he do the same for the families of our dead soldiers?
