Dear Laura

Would you like to send the following Mother's Day message to Laura Bush?

Dear First Lady Laura Bush:

I'm sure that for Mothers Day you'll be celebrating the fact that you have two great daughters growing up and moving into the professional world.

But I'm writing to ask that you take a moment to reflect on the thousands of other American mothers who won't be celebrating Mothers Day this year. Instead, for those who have lost their sons and daughters in Iraq, this day will only be a reminder of grief and sorrow.

Now, your husband is rattling his saber against Iran and threatening a military attack. I beg of you -- please convince him that war should not be an option. The so-called Iranian "crisis" can be resolved through diplomacy and coalition-building -- not dropping bombs and sending in troops.

So, please have a word with your husband. Ask him if he would still attack Iran if your two daughters were in the military and scheduled to be in the first units sent in. If the answer to that question is no, then how can he ask other moms and dads to make a sacrifice that he's not willing to himself?



If so, click here.
