Remember This, Cindy Sheehan

Before Cindy Sheehan and her crew lose their grip on what's really going on, I am reposting the following comments. I originally wrote these words a few minutes before the march began on September 24th in Washington DC:

"It could be called a carnival of caring, a thought-provoking parade or a crowd of concern. It is, by any name, an event that will make September 24, 2004 a date that this population will remember for a long time.

I've met so many people from all over the Country!

Signs bearing slogans are circulating around the Washington Monument. And of course, the media is here, with tripods, lights and cameras in tow.

But in the midst of all of the color and conversation over 900 white crosses silently stand in the grass behind rows of empty boots.

And a multitude of people suddenly have one thing to say: "We're tired of our broken and bloody government and its terrible battle with the Middle East."

The boots and crosses are making an impact without saying anything at all.

So much animation, so much creative expression, so much strength of conviction and all of it is packing a powerful point."

This is really what I want people to remember. Still.
