Let's Talk Openly and Honestly About the War

Sunday's Johnson City Press contained an opinion piece from the editor entitled: War in Iraq has taken a toll in lives, patience. It is a good commentary. The editor takes a moment to praise the efforts of ConcernedTNCitizens and other groups who speak out to oppose this war:

Others, like a group that held a candlelight vigil in Johnson City on Wednesday, are encouraging people to speak out on the war.
Sandra Garrett of Concerned TN Citizens suggests local residents write letters to members of Congress, newspapers and blog sites. That’s a good idea. We should talk honestly and openly about this war. That would be a refreshing break from the partisan rhetoric that we hear from our politicians.
Here is how to contact your congressperson.
