Stitch for Senate Helmet #7:
Knitted for Senator Patrick Leahy
Senator Leahy opposes the war in Iraq and continues to question the truth behind the administration's claims about the war. He truly represents his constituents in Vermont, the majority of whom are opposed to this war. Vermont has sacrificed the highest number of soldiers, per capita, in Iraq for a cause that has nothing to do with the security and wellbeing of its citizens. I am participating in this project because it is one more way to express my opposition to this war in a tangible way. These helmet liners represent our soldiers who have sacrificed their lives for reasons only the current administration believes. Bring our troops home now!
