Update 12/17/12: Happy Birthday Bradley!
Today is Bradley Manning’s 25th birthday, and his third birthday in prison without trial. Please write him a letter of support as he prepares for his upcoming court martial in March, here are just a few of the wonderful messages of support we’ve received so far!
I will be offering my support to you far beyond your temporary unjust restriction from the not so free USA. However I will always think of your bravery and if there is anything I can do to make your days brighter I will. Art food music?
Happy B-Day Bradley
Thank you. You are an inspiration to millions worldwide.
Greetings from cold Finland
I sincerely wish you all the best.
I wish I could do more for you than to write you an email wishing you a happy birthday (better than a Facebook ‘happy birthday : P )
I am 100% in your corner and support everything you have done. There are millions upon millions of people that support you.
Happy birthday again.
Happy Birthday Bradley Manning,
Well, at least as happy it can be considering where you are. I am one of your millions of supporters and admirers around the world, a world which desperately needs to know what is going on in it. We thank you for letting us know some of the things those in power hide from the rest of us. Stay brave and steadfast. One day (soon I hope) you will be free. One day (soon I hope) the world will be free and you will be universally praised as a maker of that freedom.
I am an American living overseas and just wanted to take this time to thank you personally for the courage and moral values that you have shown to have. You are an amazing young man and every mother would be proud to have you as her son. These difficult years behind bars are honing your character and God only knows the strength and determination that this will add to you when you are released and can begin again in a new direction. I hope that you will have a special birthday despite the gloom and that there will be seeds of happiness in it. As of today I will add you to my prayers.
Happy Birthday Bradley!
I know you haven´t been going through happy days, but I wish you the most happy birthday ever. You have plenty to be happy about, Bradley, because you are a true leader, you are what America should be all about. Your brave actions in carrying out your oath to support and defend the Constitution is enviable, by any standard. I spent eight years on active duty and two years in the reserve (1960 to 70) and you make my proud to be called a vet, very proud. Many guys have obtained medals in illegal and immoral wars (not their fault) – most for supporting actions in defiance of our Constitution and breaking national and international laws, while you have directly supported our Constitution and laws. I don´t know what I´d have done in your situation – I can only dream about it, while you actually did it.
I am truly sorry for what you´re going through, but I thank you from the bottom of my heart for making that decision. Thank you.
Hi Bradley, My best wishes on your 25th birthday. I’m a WWII Navy vet who appreciates you as a person of high principle and would be proud to have you as a grandson.
