Thank you, Cindy Sheehan.
Thank you for Questioning Authority, when your son Casey was sacrificed to no purpose in Iraq. Thank you for Camp Casey in Crawford, Texas. Thank you for every scrap of media attention you were able to get from the war-drumming media establishment. Thank you for not quitting.
Thank you for your quixotic run to unseat Congresswoman Nancy Pelosi in 2008.
Thank you for traveling across the country speaking in every little venue you could find. Including the stops in Louisville, talking one-on-one to mere handfuls of the like-minded, who have even less of a voice than you. Or perhaps they had simply not yet drawn strength from your willing example.
Thank you for holding Barack Obama accountable, when the Democratic Establishment was hyping their public mantra Hope, Change, and Give Him a Chance, while pursuing their real agenda of keeping the military-industrial types on target to bankrupt the nation and destroy it as a force for good in the world. Which is the real agenda of the Republican Neo-Cons, too.
Thank you for making peace a priority.
And thank you for two recent posts on your website.
Thank you for writing An Open Letter to War Loving (Democratic/Republican) Frauds, which does two things. First, it tells it like it is. Second, it tells me that you are still very active and haven't given up.
But the thing that gives me more reason to cheer is your other, seemingly less relevant post, One Wedding and Unlimited Funerals, about the upcoming ROYAL WEDDING (Pomp and Circumstance, anyone?). It got me thinking: but that will have to be the next post.
Anyway, if the Lord of All Worlds has declared a blessing on the peacemakers, He will not likely forget the peace-seekers. Blessings to you, Cindy.
