This was something I thought of but trying to see if I can get every writer within the gothic subculture or other personalities involved who supported the people in uniform over in Iraq. I supported this new war from day one, and followed the story of Jessica Lynch -- though she asks for no more gifts but thought of the idea that comes in mind with this.
It was an errie calm when I was walking around Baltimore, Maryland, during the time when I learned of her capture. All the flags were at half mast, so with this idea -- I am planning to call the post office in Palestine see if they want in on it being they are in contact with the family. Some of the members from my community are possibly over there as I speak or have friends whose family are there now.
Being that I was in the Navy, I know a lot of the things I remembered when I was in basic about if one was to become a prisoner of war. Just give their name, rank and Social Security number. The uncles were both Vietnam era vets and they shared the stories of what it was like -- one talks about it while the other doesn't. So what I wrote in a letter to her is that once the physical wounds are healed, it would be the psychological ones that would be there. Where she would not want to sleep because of the nightmares.
I am thinking of the gothic community to contribute their wishes for the ones who are back home. The guidelines for the project is that the writers could write out their thoughts but keep them within reason because Jessica Lynch is a devote Christian. So for those who are protesting what is going on, What is the fucking problem? For each person who is protesting there are at least about 200 who supports what what goes on there, and for those who were POWs -- and they see them walking in the street, thank them.
I was just getting into my trip in Maryland when I learned of her disappearence, and when I learned of her rescue I was in Baltimore. It was from a local who followed the whole thing from day one -- I learned of this also from a link which was provided by The Trenchcoat Chronicles
