Nora's first media interview

On Saturday late afternoon, Nora and Lisa went by Metro to downtown Washing DC to an anti-war march. Nora gave her first interview, with a woman reporter for ABC radio. Nora spoke into the reporter's mic: "I came here to tell the President -- because this is where he lives -- that he needs to stop the war so that the soldiers can come home to their families."
