    A very worthwhile read

    No matter what you think of the war in Iraq or when troops should be pulled out, Cindy Sheehan's words are worth reading. She comes from the perspective of someone who has lost a child in the war and so raises the question of under what circumstances we should risk the lives of our citizens in a very personal, moving, thought provoking way. This pamphlet focuses a lot on the importance of nonviolent action as a way of protesting unjust policies, as advocated by Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., and also on questions that have come up about what the Bush administration knew before going to war (like the Downing Street Memo). I liked the interview format, too. It's short but riveting.
