San Francisco II

An uncle of a soldier killed in Iraq came bearing flowers to place in the boots with his nephew's name. He also came to speak at the press conference, telling of his opposition to the war, one of so many families who have publicly spoken out during the Eyes Wide Open Tour.

When he looked for the boots, he found that the name had been removed at the request of the mother. Since that was his sister, he called her on his cell phone and told her that he was there to speak and honor her son, his nephew.

She had been called by a Marine mother, who had given her false information about the Eyes Wide Open Memorial and our purpose. After talking with her a few minutes, she told us to put his name back on the boots.

last week we received 17 more new requests for the memorial, bringing the total of new requests to over 150.
