Cindy Sheehan's book to be published on Wednesday.
A book by Cindy Sheehan, Not One More Mother's Child, is to be published on Wednesday. The paperback will contain some of her speeches, letters to politicians and a collection of her articles.
Mrs Sheehan will probably go down in history as the woman who gave voice to the millions of Americans who had always opposed this aggression, and who probably created quite a few new opponents of the war as well. For that reason the warmongers tried to smear her in a desperate attempt to divert attention from the searing image of a mother, grieving for her dead son. The smears failed and probably served to turn more people away from this war.
My feeling is that she will be remembered when all the drunken hand shandyists for war are dead and forgotten about.
