Dear Sir or Madam:

Is it enough for Hollywood's anti-war leaders to suddenly go silent?

I think not.

In the last few months, no group of individuals has been more outspoken about the war than Hollywood celebrities. Mike Farrell, Susan Sarandon, Martin Sheen, Ed Asner, and dozens of other celebrities have used their status to question the war effort. However, since the war began, these same celebrities have largely faded from view - at precisely the time when America needs them the most!

With our sons and daughters shedding their blood for our freedoms, it's time for all Americans - including Hollywood leaders - to put aside their differences and stand united.

Fortunately, many citizens are doing just that. I have supported an effort by a grassroots organization called Grassfire.net to urge Hollywood to vocally support the troops. This group has placed a giant billboard perched over the Hollywood Walk Of Fame that says to Holly wood leaders, "America Needs You." Grassfire.net has also helped place "Support Our Troops" yard signs in over 5,000 communities across the country.

Why can't Hollywood do the same?

Historically, Hollywood has played a "larger than life" role in the battles of our past.
Many celebrated stars such as Jimmy Stewart and Clark Gable, served bravely, while others heroically entertained the troops through USO tours. We the fans of Hollywood urge them to once again use their incredible resources for purposes that unite America.

Hollywood, America needs you! It's not political anymore. It's personal, and America needs you to answer the call to duty.
