Imagine my surprise when I flipped on NewsNine WMUR TV Sunday morning to have to watch reporting on the antiwar protesters gathered in Concord, and hear that there were no counterprotesters on the scene because, well, it’s just not true. Sorry Newsnine, you really blew this one! Our friend Blue Star Mother Sue Peterson sent the following pics and notes:
Doug – Here are some of the pictures..as soon as I get the rest, I will send them to you. FYI – The one with us behind the flag – shows Denise holding the boots – they are the ones that she picked up from the sidewalk – the sidewalk was lined again with the boots and the soldier’s names attached. We had 4 Gold Star Moms with us yesterday….Jeb Bradley…Grant Bosse….and several Blue Star Moms and a few vets…It was a great time – and I am so thankful for those that were there….Blessings,Sue
This was the very last picture – so there were 8 people that had left…Also, the white tag that Lynn is holding is her son Matt Stanley’s name – she took it off the boots and threw them out in the snow.
We need to help educate the people of NH as to what these peace people do…they line them with shoes to represent the dead Iraqis – and when I asked "you mean those killed by Saddam," they could not answer me… they just want to make our soldiers look like baby killers.

Jeb Bradley joins in support of the troops and their mission
Grant Bosse, Sue Peterson, and the rest of the Moms & supporters walk so that it won’t be said that people didn’t support our troops in the face of the antiwar peaceniks…
They’re right… we must NEVER forget!
