1. Terrific letter, thank you. Now, my own loony two cents.
Cindy Sheehan may be too young to remember Peace Pilgrim. She was someone about whom I knew too little during the '60's, but with whom I was impressed. Peace Pilgrim deliberately was not "associated" with any organization, including the Quakers (I believe her original faith) and ended up divorced when her husband chose military service.

I can't know Cindy's pain, but like many other DU'ers, I care & I'm grateful. I like to think that if Cindy undertook a walk from coast to coast, staying only at the homes of DU'ers, she would see for herself that in spite of occasional attacks, she's appreciated & supported. If she included all the other Americans who support her, I think she'd be shocked.

Young folks in particular frequently have black & white opinions & that's how it should be. Education is a great first step, but wisdom comes with pain & suffering & sacrifices, which ironically usually result from our mistakes & stupid choices & questionable associations. C'est la vie :hippie:
