Up the Road

“Almost 4,000 U.S. Troops have died in the war in Iraq, and for what "noble" cause? Honor our fallen and demand answers and a safe return for the remaining U.S. Troops in Iraq. The holidays may be the toughest time of year for our troops on the front lines and the families and kids they've left behind.

Please consider making a donation to the USO to help get a care package to a G.I. in Iraq this Christmas.” d=571-- Ava Lowery

Ava Lowery is the teenage peace activist from Alabama behind the website,, and has received an amazing amount of attention. Ava's animations show the multidimensional tragedy of the Iraq war- losses of brave young soldiers to American families, and loss of innocent civilians in Iraq. Poignant and raw, Ava's youth and sincerity has attracted support from a broad base of both soldiers and activists.
