Stitch for Senate Helmet #17:
Knitted for Senator Blanche Lincoln


For the sake of my peers, friends, and former students that are serving, I would like to create a helmet liner for Sen. Blanche Lincoln of Arkansas. Although she has consistently voted against the war and supports the troops, she could do more. I hope that this will be a tangible reminder that Iraq is sliding further and further into civil war and taking the lives of more than 3,200 service members- 54 with Arkansas ties, and 2 of those who were my former students. Furthermore, I want her to see the absurdity of my donating helmet liner to a US Senator and realize the absurdity of this war. It’s time to come home, boys. This knitting and message is dedicated to the Arkansans who have served and those who gave their all.
