I'm at the Texas Tea & Coffee House in McGregor. I came here while Robert is taking a test at Dell. Several minutes ago a group of ladies took their place a couple of tables behind me. I paid them no attention. I just got out of my seat to empty my bladder (in the restroom.) On the way back I noticed one of the ladies at the table is none other than than the world's most famous war protester, Cindy Sheehan.
I want to go up to her and tell her I'm sorry for the loss of her son. Sad thing is, she probably has people say that all the time to her from both ends of the political spectrum. Some are sorry for her loss because they believe it a horrible war. Some are sorry for her loss because they believe it a just war. As I'm listening to her speak to her friends about average everyday things, I wonder if anyone shares her pain for any other reason than to further their politial position.
I sure hope so.
