OPEN LETTER TO CINDY SHEEHAN:
Residing in the same town as you once resided and knowing your family, I must ask you, "Whatever are you thinking?"
Your son was the one who encouraged my youngest son to enlist. You were very proud of Casey and what he was doing then and he believed very much in what he was doing.
After Casey was killed, my eldest was one of the local airmen who brought him home, facing hostile fire to do so, so you would not not have to wait.
My daughter comforted you and your family. You two spent hours and hours engaged in heartfelt grief. At that time, you were very, very supportive of the President, of our soldiers and of what was occurring in Iraq.
Cindy, you've changed since the Kerry campaign contacted you in early July of last summer. You're not the same grieving mom, especially after you started traveling on the road to support John Kerry's campaign.
You've turned into a political puppet for those who are exploiting you and its not pretty nor does it do anything for Casey's memory. You're not the same, quiet compassionate woman we saw at church or downtown, when you proudly sat as the entire town showed up on Memorial Day to honor Casey and Mike Williams.
How can you justify berating the President for honoring the soldiers who died while protecting America and following the directives of the Congress and the Senate? How can you consistently state that you don't want your son's name to be acknowledged by him and on the same hand, turn around and use the name of Joe Williams' Mike, as an example for your cause despite the many requests of the family for you not to do so? How could you print Mike's name in your anti-war advertisement in the newspaper even after seeing the grief and effort his mother went through to go to Crawford to personally remove it from your cross. You knew it caused them pain.
Mike died honorably and his father, a Vietnam vet is very proud of him. He believed in what he was doing, just like Casey. How could you bring so much pain to the Williams family and so much pain to a nation because of your own anger?
Cindy, how can you do this to your kids who don't know how to explain your actions to anyone here in town? They went through a lot last summer and still are.
The hours, days and weeks following Casey's death were emotionally gut wrenching as many of us with children, husbands, wives, friends and other loved ones in the military comforted you while living with the fears for our own loved ones over there. Everyone went above and beyond because we all believed and still believe in how very right, honorable and courageous our loved ones are in their mission to keep America safe.
We all went through considerable anguish when Casey died and I suspect none moreso than you. But how can you justify your anguish and place it on a higher level than that of Joe Williams?
The treatment you've returned to everyone is inexcusable. Placing Mike Williams' name on a cross despite the family's objections was unforgiveable and the reaction of Mike's mother when she saw it was heartbreaking.
What you are doing to neighbors, to friends, Casey's battle buddies and to a nation of people who are having to relieve the ugly pain of the late 60s and the 70s is unfair.
This is about you, Cindy. Not about anyone else. When you turn your back on your neighbors, your friends, your family and act in this manner, it only evidences that there is no consideration toward anyone or anything else.
Finally, and most disturbing, how can you support a group that supported John Kerry, who on April 7th, on National Public Radio stated that Al Sadr had a "legitimate voice" and that the Coalition (including your son) should not have closed down his newspaper after he called for the deaths of U.S. troops.
You know better than anyone else, Casey was killed in Sadr City by the Al Sadr militants. How can you join ranks with those who support the terrorist who called for the death of your son?
Its beyond me, Cindy, and something I suspect, someday in the future, you'll look back on and with considerable pain.
We don't want that for you. I believe you need to sit down and think about it long and hard. You are bringing so much pain to this nation and its people.
When the spotlight leaves her, she will commit suicide. Watch.
If you haven't already, you need to send that to some of the MSM editorial page editors
No, No, No, I don't want Cindy Sheehan to leave yet. I want her to help us destroy the entire Democrat "traitor/treason" Party at the ballot box!!!!
Great letter! Send it so CS can see it!
Once the realization that she's being used like Charmin sets in on her, I believe you're right.
If you want a Google GMail account, FReepmail me.
They're going fast!
She loves herself too much for that.
Absolutely right. Surely you've seen the jovial pics of "grieving" Mother Sheehan enjoying every minute of her time in the limelight. Casey's coffin has become her soapbox, nothing more.
Thanks to your children for their service to this country, and thank you for supporting our troops.
This is a very well written letter with excellent points and sincere compassion. Please consider sharing it with the MSM. Thank you for sharing it with us.
Thank you for this.
Kerry stabbing troops in the back, as usual.
I concur. Once she wakes up and realizes how she has been used she will either have a mental breakdown or kill herself. Where will her left wing moonbats friends be then? I only hope her friends and neighbors are big enough people to look over this period in her life and will help her. Otherwise she will live a very lonely,depressing life going forward. She has already thrown away her marriage. It would be ashame to lose your son, your husband, and everything else that is familiar and comforting just to impress a couple of people who come along and keep telling you how "important" you are.
Whats the source? Ive never seen a source link like this
I was in Crawford and saw the scum that the "bitch in the ditch" has around her.
Good bye Sindy.
I cannot help but think her son is looking down at her shaking his head and rolling his eyes. I bet her behavior is the last thing her brave son wanted.
