Against Killing: The Mother’s Voice– East Coast Events

Carolyn Ho and Lt. Watada

When I first heard of Ehren’s decision to be the first American Army officer to refuse deployment to Iraq, I wondered: “What would it be like to be a stranger in one’s own country, to be vilified, hated, and demeaned?” … I have come to realize that my son, in a small part, embodies the hope of the nation — to end an illegal, immoral war that has brought death and destruction to over 650,000 Iraqis and Americans. 

— Carolyn Ho, mother of Lt. Ehren Watada

  2. Right on, branjor. I fixed the link to “Refusing to Kill” — what a great organization that looks to be, with many good links. This is a network of men refusing to kill, supporting the many imprisoned men who have refused to kill or serve in the military, and supporting the Global Women’s Strike. Check them out, everybody!

    Refusing to Kill.
