The day has finally come: Chelsea Manning is being released! Since May 2010 Chelsea has been in prison for exposing the costs and inhumanity of war. She risked everything to do what she felt was right. Share your inspiration and commitment with Chelsea below. We will make sure she receives it. At these moments of victory, it is important to let the inspiration refuel our own commitments.
Long May You Run . . .
No one could possibly imagine what you have suffered in your young life. I hope that you will be able to work through all the issues, and reclaim your life, and go on to have the happy life that you deserve. May God bless and guide you.
Breathe in free air, Chelsea. I am so happy you can look out beyond the horizon. Enjoy. I've always got your back.
I hope this finds you well as you inhale truth and exhale freedom! I am forever grateful and indebted to your service as well as your sacrifice for the citizens of this country and beyond. Through all that you have endured, you are a shero to people all around the world. I have proudly worked for you during your trial and beyond through Courage to Resist and CODEPINK which included organizing several marches, protests and events including a Trans 101 teach-in with you in mind in DC and on military bases. I look forward to meeting you now that you are free at last. WELCOME HOME CHELSEA!
You are a true patriot and a noble human being as you the interests of the country and humanity at heart. Thank you for your sacrifices and hope you enjoy your freedom.
Dear Chelsea: I watched in horror at what my government did to you for telling the truth. It just corroborates for me that the gangsters who have stolen the reigns of power in this country are pure evil. We must all learn from your courage to stand up and say: No More!!! Not on my watch, not with my tax dollars, and not in my name! Thank you; a million times thank you!
Chelsea, thank-you so much for speaking out, not compromising, acting with courage, persevering, and for doing what was right. You deserve your freedom!!!
Dear Chelsea, that video you released of the helicopter killing journalists and those who came to their rescue, that video showed why we should have never invaded Iraq and the criminality that followed. I'm sorry for all you suffered and thank Obama for freeing you. I wish he had showed as much mercy for Leonard Peltier.
Dearest Chelsea, you are stronger than you think, wiser than you know, braver than you believe and coming to know this will bring your new life much-deserved peace, joy and love. Countless people worldwide are rooting for you and holding you in their hearts.
Chelsea, dear, thank you for your actions in exposing the truth. You have a way of doing what is right for you and for our country. A fellow transwoman wishes you well.
You are an Actual Hero. Never should that word be in the same sentence as a president or a member of the federal bureau of injustice.
This is the day so many of us around the world have been anticipating for so long. Finally, justice. Now relax, nourish yourself well, breathe the fresh air, look at the stars, the blue sky, the trees and plants; maybe cuddle up with an animal or human and feel the love flowing towards you and surrounding you. You're our hero, our inspiration, our pride. Much love and many blessings to you, Chelsea. Onward!
We must work to ensure that our entire country recognizes the value of your revelations.
Dear Chelsea, I am so excited and relieved that you have been released from prison. I wish you much peace and happiness in the coming days as you spend time with your loved ones and consider what the next phase of your life will bring. You are in my thoughts and prayers on this wonderful day.
I'm sorry for how the US Military TORTURED you. I'm sorry Neocon Obama didn't step in to save you! You are an American Hero,
You are an American hero of peace and justice. I love you so much and I am so grateful that you found the courage to speak out against an illegal war. Blessings to you and yours, my dear. Melina
Chelsea, You touched the lives of all those who campaigned/fought/prayed for you with something honest and truthful, at a huge cost. As a teacher, I refuse to be part of anything that hurts or harms any of the young people in my classroom and I will continue to speak against any prejudice, lies or indoctrination I am asked to teach even though it keeps loosing me jobs! I will pray that you are filled with peace and that you feel the love that surrounds you and that it heals your hurt places. Michelle
