Dear Karl Rove
by Cindy Sheehan
weekend, you said that I was a clown and the antiwar movement was
"non-existent." I wonder if the hundreds of thousands of people
who showed up to protest this war and George's failed policies know
that they don't exist. It is so incredible to me that you think
that you can wish us away by saying we aren't real. Well, Karl and
Co., we are real, we do exist, and we are not going away until this
illegal and immoral occupation of Iraq is over.
may be a clown, Karl, but you preside over a malevolent three-ring
circus: the Bush administration.
rally was overwhelming and powerful. Washington, DC, was filled
with energetic and proud Americans who came from all over to raise
their voices in unison against the criminals who run our government
and their disastrous policies that are making our nation more vulnerable
to all kinds of attacks (natural and Bush-made disasters).
people told me, “thank you for coming.” I told them, "thank you!
" At the Camp Casey reunion after the rally, I was so overcome with
emotion and gratitude. All of us in the Camp Casey movement are
so proud and thrilled that Americans showed up in such great numbers.
much happened! I am exhausted but very content. I am again filled
with a sense of hope that we will get our country back and bring
our troops home. I was also thrilled at the number of young people
who came out. That is another great sign.
I noted at the White House, the peacemakers are light and the warmakers
are dark. And darkness can never overcome the light. As long as
there is one tiny flame, the darkness cannot win. Indeed, the darkness
has already lost because our beacons of peace and truth are shining
for the entire world to see. And it is a very pretty sight, Karl.
