It's Mother's Day at Camp Casey. Surrounded by about 30 mothers, Cindy had been reading their letters to Laura Bush. Tears were streaming down her face. At that moment, a call came in from the hospital that Cindy's mother had just had a stroke.

She immediately left the camp and has flown off to be with her mother, who is in intensive care. The other mothers continued to share their letters and marched the hour from camp down to the entrance to Bush's ranch to deliver the letters.

Before she left, Cindy asked that everyone continue to keep the pressure on Bush to talk to the mothers and answer their questions.
