So I just returned from a New Years Eve party at a friend’s house who is a way famous rock muscian. And there were movie stars and rock stars there, as well as normal people. And although I was a little shy, as I tend to be in these situations, it was okay, and famous people tend to be people, which is something that I need to remember. Because sitting at the table with a very good friend of mine, was this middle-aged woman, who was sort of out of place, but familiar, and I so wanted to go up to her, and tell her how much I admired her courage, her conviction, and how sorry I was for her loss, but I just couldn’t do it. I was just too shy. Charlee did, and I’m proud of her for that.
So when Cindy Sheehan left the party, I felt an opportunity had passed, and while it wouldn’t have mattered one way or the other to her, I’m sure, it will now, always matter to me.
So, from here, safely behind my desk:
Thanks Cindy. You are a hero. I’m sorry for your loss, and I’m grateful for your courage. I hope you have a great New Year. You deserve more.
