When we invaded Iraq I stopped using my gas dryer to dry clothes. We live in a neighborhood where people have aspirations and big houses and my clothes lines are pretty much a protest that shows where my heart lies. Every soldier and member of the military overseas has my heartfelt support and thanks for doing a hard and dangerous job but I know that one reason we're over there is that they are fighting to give big oil companies and the US Government power over huge oil reserves underneath that country. I figure anything I can do to reduce the amount of energy I use might get that war over a little sooner and every day as I hang out towels and shirts and pants I think maybe that is one small bit of getting the military home sooner.
The soldier in Iraq who bought a DVD to learn about keeping chickens wrote " I received my video and I'm so impressed with it, there was a lot of useful information that I can't wait to put to good use when I get back home. As far as the bumper sticker is concerned you send it to my wife for me, I know that she would be happy to put it on her car."
I'm sending his wife a bumper sticker. I wish I could do more.
