Cindy Sheehan (HuffPost): Day 6
Day 6 began early yesterday morning when people in cars drove by our camp a few times and blasted on their horns. I just assume they were blaring their approval of us.

Before we get to the less than negative things that are happening out at Camp Casey and in the world at large, over 700 people showed up at the Camp yesterday. There were more people, flowers, cards, mail, interviews, laughter, heartache, camaraderie, excitement, and just sheer work.

We had the first birthday party last night at our little event. Alicia from Austin turned 17 and they came to Crawford to celebrate with a cake. Alicia said that she wanted to be out here for her birthday. So many great people from so many parts of the country and our world are here.

Yesterday was kind of a blur to me. From running around from interview to interview, to getting a visit from Viggo Mortensen, it was a whirlwind of activity. I have discovered that the White House press corps is always looking for something to do and someone to cover. We have been happy to oblige them. We had a press conference today with Gold Star Families for Peace and Military Families Speak Out members. It was very effective when people who actually have skin in the game ask the president to be held accountable for the words he has actually said.

1. "...people who actually HAVE SKIN IN THE GAME ..."
That phrase really hits me in the gut. It is powerful.

Somehow, this combination of words should be catapulted out there.

4. So Jack Rabbit - I clicked on the KU line and up pops that
jack rabbit. I grew up in Kansas - Rice and Barton county. Have not lived there since 1969 but have noticed while visiting family that the jack rabbit population seemed greatly diminished. Gone are the nights when you would see 5-10 jack rabbits in your headlights in a one mile length of road.

What a nice surprise and it provided me a sweet reflective moment of my youth in another part of the country.

5. Actually, I've never been to Kansas
I've been to Nebraska. My mother was born on a farm near Plattsmouth.
