Over 100 people showed up this afternoon for a rally in support of the troops at Courthouse Park in Sonora. They waved flags, sang patriotic songs, and expressed their strong support for President Bush€™s actions in Iraq. One demonstrator said, “this is the most beautiful thing in the world and this is the most beautiful country in the world, and I support the troops 150%!”
17-year-old Sonora High Student Nathan Vasher and some of his friends organized the rally. Vasher says the anti-war protests like those going on in San Francisco may be discouraging to military men and women serving in the Mid-East.
