18. Read it and weep.
Edited on Mon May-28-07 01:35 PM by Totally Committed
I have also tried to work within a peace movement that often puts personal egos above peace and human life. This group wont work with that group; he wont attend an event if she is going to be there; and why does Cindy Sheehan get all the attention anyway? It is hard to work for peace when the very movement that is named after it has so many divisions....

...This is my resignation letter as the face of the American anti-war movement. This is not my Checkers moment, because I will never give up trying to help people in the world who are harmed by the empire of the good old US of A, but I am finished working in, or outside of this system. This system forcefully resists being helped and eats up the people who try to help it. I am getting out before it totally consumes me or anymore people that I love and the rest of my resources.

Good-bye America you are not the country that I love and I finally realized no matter how much I sacrifice, I cant make you be that country unless you want it.

Its up to you now.


Thanks Cindy, for everything. I understand completely where you are coming from, and retreating to. May the wind be always at your back.
