"I GIVE A SHEET" Pro-Bush and Troops Rally held Friday August 19, 2005

Sheets with signatures of support for the President were delivered to a White House staffer

Pro-Bush and Troops "I give a sheet" rally held in Crawford at the Community Center was attended by an estimated 150 Bush supporters from Central Texas, Georgia and Oklahoma. White bed sheets were signed by approximately 3700 people with notes of encouragement to President Bush. Supporters then marched down Prairie Chapel Road and delivered the folded sheets tied with yellow ribbons to White House representative Bill Burck Friday, August 19, 2005.
 
The rally and delivery of the handwritten messages, as you can see, was covered by national media but not widly reported. The photographers in the photo are Jason Reed with Reuters and Matt Otero with the Associated Press. Reed did move photos from the event, but AP did not. There were at least 30 reporters that covered the rally.

Dedicated Camp Reality volunteers lined Prairie Chapel Road with BUSH COUNTRY, IM4W and SUPPORT OUR TROOPS signs which were donated by grassfire.org. They began at Pro-Bush Camp Reality and wound their way for several miles up the road and across from the long row of crosses set up as a make shift memorial to fallen soldiers at Cindy Sheehan's Camp Casey I.

Earl Johnson was on the 51st floor of the first tower hit of the World Trade Center on 9-11 and escaped down the stairs before the tower fell. Many New York fire fighters passed him going up the stairwell to rescue those trapped inside. They never made it back down. Earl took the opportunity to share his heroic story with a Junior High class and the High School juniors and seniors while in Crawford. He and his wife now live in Washington state.

Sign banter and flower ceremony
Sunday was still very busy with a new group of Bush supporters visiting Camp Reality. One of the mother's that lost her son in ithe war stayed with us again Sunday. There was heavy sign banter throughout the day with each side responding to the others messages on the other sides signs.
 
Al Sharpton and Martin Sheen visited Cindy's Camp Casey 2. Sharpton rolled his vehicle's  window down and gave us the peace sign as he drove past Camp Reality. Sunday afternoon, Cindy followers attached roses to the white crosses in a ceremony that lasted well over a hour with each participant walking down Prairie Chapel Road individually.
