Are you there, W? Ava Lowrey, a 16-year-old in Alabama articulates her courage and objections to the war in Iraq in her professional-looking videos on PeaceTakesCourage.com. She has been threatened with rape and murder for speaking out. This video, WWJD, that focuses on the injuries of children in the region, ironically and sadly has been flagged for mature audiences.

See her YouTube Videos here, including the emotional WWJD, also above.

Ava recently celebrated her 16th birthday with a war protest at her state capitol.  She posts her videos on DailKos here.
