Cindy with Gold Star and Blue Star families

At today's press conference, Cindy was surrounded by Blue Star and Gold Star families who said, "Cindy opened up the dialogue and gave others the courage to speak out against the war." Cindy also reached out to other Gold Star and Blue Star families who support the war, saying, "We may not have the same politics, but we have the same pain."

A representative from the American Friends Service Committee spoke about their "Eyes Wide Open" campaign, which highlights the cost of war by displaying a pair of empty boots for each fallen soldier. The exhibit has now traveled to Crawford so the AFSC rep could present three Gold Star moms with their late sons' boots, which they immediately placed at the foot of their gravemarkers.
