That Day Is Today

W & W, August 16, 2005, of Cindy Sheehan:
losing a child is a unique trauma and the MSM & the Left's eagerness to use her is gross. When her news cycle has ended, will any of those currently exploiting her wholly understandable grief and rage be around to support her when she realizes she's lost not only her son but her whole family?
What decent people do when someone loses it in public is avert their eyes --not sell tickets.

Cindy Sheehan's diary, today:
I am going to take whatever I have left and go home. I am going to go home and be a mother to my surviving children and try to regain some of what I have lost.
From the reactions, the answer is no. Except I did find some respect for her in a strange place.
Kristinn Taylor, spokesman for, which has held pro-troop rallies and counter-protests of anti-war demonstrations, said dwindling crowds at Sheehan's Crawford protests since her initial vigil may have led to her decision. But he also said he hopes she will now be able to heal.
"Her politics have hurt a lot of people, including the troops and their families, but most of us who support the war on terror understand she is hurt very deeply," Taylor said today.
