Bush has finally done something right! This most definitely must be a first time since he became President, and I am talking about the first time since the first election! Call me a cynic if you will, but hey, take a look at the photo below, even Mrs Bush looks surprised?
I just received this email from the wonderful people at Amnesty International:
"We are delighted to announce that President Bush signed the Violence Against Women Act yesterday afternoon. This law will provide approximately $3.9 billion over the next five years to help combat domestic violence in this country. A special thanks goes out to all of you. You helped to make this happen.
While the United States has made considerable strides toward combating abuse in the last decade, four women still die at the hands of their partners and 700 are raped or sexually assaulted each day. This renewed legislation now emphasizes early intervention, a critical component of saving lives.
Amnesty International recently joined with the National Organization for Women and Break the Cycle to deliver a petition with 100,000 signatures to key lawmakers in December as they negotiated the final version of the bill. More than 90,000 of these signatures came from all of you.
We encourage you to get more involved with Amnesty International's life-saving work. Visit our Web site today to find out how you can help free prisoners of conscience, abolish the death penalty, stop torture, and ensure that every person enjoys full human rights."
Together we can make a difference.
