am hopeful and optimistic I see the power of the people in Michele She explains why she is fasting in her selfless
way She tells about the Guard members and Veterans who stopped by to "thank her" she tells me about her children
safety.... , and why putting her life on the line is what we are "asking of the national guard"

The campaign to keep the Oregon National Guard from
going to Iraq or Afghanistan is alive and well. The campaign had a spirited hearing on the two measures, HB 2556-1 and
HR 4, before the House Rules Committee on March 11. The Chair of the Rules Committee told us that the bills wouldn't get out
of his committee to a floor vote unless we can tell him that we have enough votes (31) for the measures to pass the house.
We have good bipartisan support but we are not up to 31.
In the wee hours of morning on Sunday, February 8th, an Oregon
