What a great way to end the day, seeing this pardon. Having attended Mannings trial and seeing how fragile Chelsea was..this brought tears to my eyes. This is a great thing Obama is doing. The American taxpayers should be grateful to Manning for exposing the criminal behavior of some military through the released movie “Collateral Damage” that went viral on the Internet. Chelsea risked her life giving documents to WikiLeaks in order that we would know what was going on behind the scenes. The message, when our government sent Manning to prison, was that it’s ok to be a whistleblower on a company… but not the government.
Thank you to everyone who helped make this event such a fantastic success. Catherine Calderon for getting all the food and making sauce for the spaghetti along with a cake. And Maggie for making a vegetarian spaghetti sauce. Doug for bringing buns and Anne Courtright who brought a tray of cookies. Nita Bakes for another wonderful tray of goodies and for handling all the guests at the door and also for the gifts she brought, James Raymond Smith and Patrick Pulis for all the moving and organizing throughout the day and making sure the music room was set up for us, We thank all the people who brought items for the silent auction (Nita, Catherine, Kate, Marsha & Steve) and especially Bella Chacon’s mom who made a special trip to bring a gift basket to help us raise money and to all the guests and musicians who played for our first gig in the music house (Dave David Gouge, Maggie May Johnny Watson, Traemon McCabe Amberdawn M McCabe, Cat Connor, Michael Comora, Fred & Bernie, Phil Holland, Steve Lujan and George Samaras who joined us later.

We raised $520 for the radio station which will launch at the end of this month. We’re working with an engineer who is bringing everything we need to get up and running by the end of this month. My dream has been fulfilled when we finished the night at the music house and all the musicians came together to create a vibe like no other! (more…)
