This one-stoplight town of 700 residents near President Bush’s ranch braced for thousands of visitors today, most in a cross-country caravan for a pro-Bush rally and others to support Cindy Sheehan’s anti-war demonstration.
More than 3,000 people were expected at the school football stadium for a pro-Bush rally, the culmination of the “You don’t speak for me, Cindy!” tour that started last week in California.
It would be the largest counter protest since Sheehan started camping out off the road leading to Bush’s ranch Aug. 6, soon after his Texas vacation began. She vowed to remain unless he talked to her about the war with Iraq that claimed the life of her son Casey and more than 1,870 other U.S. soldiers.
Gregg Garvey is determined not to let the memory of those who made the ultimate sacrifice for this country in Iraq be forgotten. Gregg has been supportive of the troops in Iraq and confronted a member of the Crawford Peace House in a video on Channel 10 KWTX here at this site.
