Peace Takes Courage

Go here. Check this out.

It's a website called "Peace Takes Courage"... It's very, how do I say,... well it is all about things that I also agree with and believe in = specifically - bring-our-troops-home and bush-is-a-liar-and-an-idiot...

I'm surprised I haven't read something about this website before, actually.  (Especially since Peace Takes Courage did an ad for YearlyKos...)  But I found it via a little article in this week's Rolling Stone. 

Anyway, the scoop is - this site and the political animations on it were created by a 15 year old girl named Ava.  According to the website: "Ava is a 15 year old student and peace activist from Alabama. In Mid-March 2005,  she created her first animation. Since then she has made over 70 animations, many of them about the war in Iraq."

And for my Rhode Island contingent - she even interviewed Carl Sheeler, who is an antiwar Democratic Candidate for U.S. Senator in Rhode Island...

So....there is still hope for the youth of our nation? This is good news.

I take it you don't read my C&J posts.....I met Ava and her mom at YKos and they're both smart as hell. Her mom ain't half bad on the eyes either. And despite the novelty factor of a 15-year-old doing these animations, I think Ava's got a lot of potential to change things in Alabama.

LOL. I thought that would get your attention...

I usually do ready your C&J posts... Except during exams and other big deadline when LJ goes by the wayside... I musta missed it...

Ava Lowery Is First Rate
When we hear from the youth what their biggest wants and worries are we hear the future question... "What should America be like in ten and twenty years from now?"

I think we need a serious course correction. That takes progressive leadership and active involvement. When a youth 15 years on this planet sees it so clearly, we need to do something now.

Get involved. Make a difference. She has. We can.

For those interested in participating in the televising of the revolution...
I'm just passing this along...

Letter to YearlyKos attendees,

I am producing an hour-long documentary for Link TV on the historic YearlyKos 2006 Conference.  In addition to airing the show this fall on Link TV national satellite channel, we will stream many new clips at LinkTV/YearlyKos and distribute the program on DVD.

We are seeking additional footage of the YearlyKos conference - panels and parties that we missed or any memorable or illuminating moments.  We're also interested in blog entries that are unique, funny or especially striking visually, including innovative video blogs. Please send links to any blogs that you would recommend.

If you have footage or resources, we would greatly appreciate receiving email links, DVDs or videos (mini-DV or VHS) by mid-July if possible. Label anything you send clearly, and DON'T SEND YOUR VIDEO MASTERS UNLESS WE ASK IN ADVANCE. All contributors will receive on-air credit and have their websites identified as cross promotion.

Please email comments, resources, ideas or links to Dbrown@linktv.org.  Check out the video coverage already posted at LinkTV/YearlyKos.  Thanks!
David L. Brown
Producer, Link Media
