and we used to post online, trying to get the word out to make people understand these were mostly innocent people and they had homes and family.

It's difficult to describe the feeling of desperation WE all had. So I cannot even imagine the desperation of those who were being held captive in OUR detention centers.

About five years ago, it was Christmas. I had been reading about the hunger strikers in Guantanamo. No one who had the authority would help them. I could imagine how desperate they were to try to kill themselves rather than live in that hell hole.

And I felt guilty to be with my family. It was hard to be happy when I knew that right here in our country our government was doing this to human beings.

Thank you for all you tried to do.
