This summer, between August 15th and the 30th, we will be hosting a Camp Casey Reunion in Placitas New Mexico about 25 miles north of Albuquerque. A special group of people will converge in a magical spot bordering wilderness with woods,mountains and incredible views at about 6000 feet in a celebration of peace, remembrance, and fellowship. The people who joined Cindy Sheehan outside George W. Bush's ranch in Crawford, TX, both in 2005 and 2006 are some of the finest people on the planet. They care about peace, they care about a better government, and they care about the condition and life of our planet.
This will be an event unprecedented, as people sleep in tents under the stars, listen to and play music, celebrate respect for the living. We don't stop caring when someone is born. We do not want them to die in prison, we do not want them to die in war, we do not want them to die of hunger, and we do not want them to die cold and homeless on the street.
We want a nation we can be proud of again. A nation that cares more for our people than using the majority of our tax dollars to develop weapons of war and mass destruction.
We are opposed to spoiling our natural resources in the search for fossil fuels, we are opposed to fracking, we are opposed to offshore drilling, and we are opposed to heavy taxation on renewable energy sources like wind, solar, and thermal. Like the ancient Native American proverb goes:
"Treat the Earth well, it was not given to you by your parents. It was loaned to you by your children. We do not inherit the Earth from our ancestors, we borrow it from our children.
A first draft of a website was created by Robert Rouse, and it will be simplified and updated soon. Lela McNutt, Carol Ezell, Melissa Garner and Dennis Kyne are planning to come. If anyone would like to come earlier to help with setting things up,that would be great. Hope that you can make it.
