Cindy Sheehan's Goodbye Letter

Found on her kos diary entitled "Good Riddance Attention Whore."

Excerpted in part:

The first conclusion is that I was the darling of the so-called left as long as I limited my protests to George Bush and the Republican Party. Of course, I was slandered and libeled by the right as a "tool" of the Democratic Party. This label was to marginalize me and my message. How could a woman have an original thought, or be working outside of our "two-party" system?

However, when I started to hold the Democratic Party to the same standards that I held the Republican Party, support for my cause started to erode and the "left" started labeling me with the same slurs that the right used. I guess no one paid attention to me when I said that the issue of peace and people dying for no reason is not a matter of "right or left", but "right and wrong."

I think this excerpt pretty much tells the story. I hope she finds true peace & is finally able to work through the death of her son. Unfortunately, she also has so much after his death, being a willing foil for the anti-US crowd, that she would need to confront & atone.
