Those Other Christians

One woman enrages war rally with her heartfelt message: 'I love my country but . . .'

Monday, April 7, 2003 - Page A2

WHEELING, W. VA. -- If Jessica Lynch is the bravest woman in America, the second-bravest may well be Angelica Amaya.

Or, as some will say -- for various reasons, including ones of her own personal safety -- the most foolish.

Certainly the several hundred people gathered Saturday morning at the Veterans Amphitheatre in a Valley Rally for America think she is dead wrong and ignorant.

Or, as one angry veteran puts it, standing less than an arm's length away from her, "She's sick -- mentally disturbed."

Yet Angelica Amaya stands her ground, tears rolling down her cheeks and her entire body shaking in the cold wind that pounds in off the Ohio River.

"I'm scared," the 33-year-old office worker admits.

"But I have to do this."
