The waiting has been almost unbearable at times. Nov. 18, 2007 seems so long ago. I crossed the line at Fort Benning in protest of SOA/WHINSEC on that date. The trial was in Columbus on Jan. 28th, and the order to report finally arrived.
I am on my way to Seattle on Wed. April 2nd, and will report to SeaTac Detention Center on Thurs. April 3rd for a 30 day stay. I am so happy about entering into the final phase of this non-violent action. I know my reality will change, I think prison does that to you, but I will also feel good about what I set out to accomplish. To take a stand, to bring SOA/WHINSEC more in the open and to continue to try to make this school HISTORY. We can do it, and we will do it.
I am including my address in prison. I will enjoy hearing from anyone that wants to write. I will try to answer all the mail I receive. Until my release, I will say Happy Trails. My daughter, Tara, will update this blog while I am in prison.
Take care, all of you out there, and remember that we all can make a difference. Just don't stop trying. Pax Tecum.
