Dear President Bush by Cindy Sheehan
Having lost her son, Cindy has dedicated herself to the mission of not just ending this war, but to addressing the underlying causes that lead us as individuals and as a society to accept violence and war as a solutions to our problems. Cindy Sheehan says another way is possible.
When she camped outside President Bush's Crawford, Texas, home last month to demand that the President come out and talk with her about the war, she not only succeeded in putting the war back into national debate, she started the Camp Casey antiwar movement. That President Bush never came out to meet her comments on our collective situation. Cindy is on a long, determined mission that's just getting started. In this pamphlet Cindy shares her journey from private grief and despair, to public action and nonviolent civil disobedience. Inspired by Martin Luther King , Jr., Henry David Thoreau, and Mahatma Ghandi, this pamphlet traces Cindy's arc from being the mother of a fallen solider, to the mother of a falling nation. The text is a transcript of a conversation between Cindy Sheehan and Greg Ruggiero.
