If the government can lock you up indefinitely whenever it wishes the idea of freedom of expression and of loyal opposition becomes meaningless.-Nat Miranda, CA Thanks for always being there when we need you most. Thanks to you, none of us can disappear into captivity by those in authority. This is what makes democracy possible: the right to express ones views or support what we believe WITHOUT the fear of disappearing. Our families need never fear that one day we’ll not be there and they can’t find us.-Dolores Santa Monica, CA
