I once gave Cindy Sheehan a copy of The Gandhi Reader when she came here to Phoenix to speak and to protest and I was deeply disheartened when she left the democratic party with good reason due to the incessant double speak of the democrats.
I didn’t know then that she would become the leader of a nonviolent (civil disobedience) antiwar movement well into the presidency of an elected democrat who would continue many of the primary foreign policies of the Bush administration, but I thank God she has, especially in this era of don’t rock the boat in foreign policy politics.
Cindy gives those of us who claimed to be opposed to war during the Bush administration an opportunity to look in the mirror and see if we really are.
I am, and that’s why I still “Support Cindy” as the signs used to read.
