My Opinion on Cindy Sheehan

I do sympathies with Cindy Sheehan. I can only imagine the pain she is feeling right now. No parent should ever out live their child. But her son chose to be in the military and chose to go back to Iraq for a second time. Does this mean she shouldn’t have the right to greave,doesn’t have the right to protest? No, it doesn’t. But I wonder what her son would be thinking if he knew what she was doing. I wonder if he would be alright with her protests. I would say probably not. I think she should be honoring her son, honoring his choice to serve in the military. He knew the risk involved, yet he still choice that line of work. I think her son is a very brave man, along with all the other brave men that have served (and serve) our country. Do I think Bush should sit down and talk to her? Only if he is going to do the same for all the other parents that have lost their child in the Iraq war.

    Dada! The commenting works :):)

    I agree with you totally. My brother knew what he was going into when he joined up, yes my mom’s upset, but she’s also very proud of her son for being so brave. I feel symapthy towards the mother who lost her son, but it happens…it IS war, and the guys who join up know they’re going TO war.

    Oh my god. Someone who finally isn’t insane. Thank you, you have become a regular blog I read because you write what I always want to say. I agree with you totally on this. In fact, I recently wrote something similar (a little more angrily) that just about stated your thinking on the nose. I think it destroys any heroism or honor he earned with his death for his mother to do what she’s doing. I think it degrades his sacrifice totally and completely. And I have to say I’ve been mighty impressed with Bush’s grip on the situation. I think I shall link you now. ^_^
