Our Loss

David Michael Green

Cindy Sheehan announced her departure from the American public sphere last week, and the loss of her voice touched me deeply.

I am saddened for her personally, for few have sacrificed so much for their country, with so little to show for it. She gave her son, Casey, for George Bush's war in Iraq. Then she spent the next three years giving up her health, her marriage, the full-time parenting of her surviving children, and every ounce of her time and energy - all to prevent other mothers from suffering the same fate.
