…and more tears, and anguish

August 4, 2005

Fourteen more military folk killed in Iraq today, plus an interpreter, plus a freelance writer in Basra — not to mention the unnumbered Iraqi innocents, women and small children. The day ends as it began for me, in grief and in determination to take action in whatever way I can. I am inspired by the example of Cindy Sheehan , mother of the late Casey Sheehan, killed in action a year ago April (thanks to truthout for delivering her messages). Her anguish is for her son, and also and incredibly, for her country. I don’t know if I could be so generous.
