Cindy Sheehan, In the Heart of Texas

Mostly, we are used to feeling but not seeing cowardly people skittering in the dark and manipulating our lives through fear and innuendo. Sometimes we see an evolved soul doing what needs to be done, regardless of the risk to herself. Our impulse is to look away and pretend nothing special is happening, because if that person can act, we might take ourselves to task for not doing the same.

Well, if you haven't, please meet Cindy Sheehan. Many on the right will accuse her of - frankly - any vile thing that fits through a narrow mind, but don't believe any of that, not a word of it. If you have children, believe in what you feel for them and ask youself as I do: shouldn't we all be sitting on that dirt road in Texas?

My darling, it is not only our right to disagree and speak up about it it is our moral obligation. Blessings upon your head for feeling as you do and saying so, especially since - as you say - it was "all candy and free college loans" and is still advertised that way to the young and the exceptionally vulnerable. I wish only the best for your son and for you, and as Cindy says, hope you never feel the pain she does.

In fact, I hope *no one* does.

I totally agree with Anoymous. When these men(boys) go off to boot camp and learn how to kill another human with a gun, what do they think they are going to be doing. It would be nice to think that all the ills of the world would be solved by drinking herbal tea and singing Kum By Ya, but that is not how it works. Talk about narrow minds.
