My Terrible Common Bond With Cindy Sheehan

Posted: Updated:

I came to Crawford with Cindy Sheehan because we have a terrible common bond: I, too, have lost a child. I feel Cindy's pain as my personal pain, and George Bush has absolutely no understanding of what that pain is like. If he did, he would never send other people's children off to die in an unnecessary war. If he did, he would understand that Cindy has sparked this nation's conscience and must be listened to. It is time for us, the mothers of this great nation, to show our fierce love for our children by joining Cindy's call to stop the killing and bring our troops home.
