Saying Goodbye to Cindy Sheehan

While I'm not sorry to see the hind end of the "peace mom," there are a few lessons to be learned from Cindy. I write about them over at FamilySecurityMatters.org today.

Good post at FSM.

[Metaphor alert!]

Maybe we see a few shreds of wisdom on her part, now that she realizes that she is "yesterday's news".

If she tries to go "back home", if burned bridges are blocking her way, will she admit that she lit those bridges "afire" or will she continue to blame someone else?

After her grief & publicity-intoxication "bender", this may be the beginning of the hangover. Will she go through a self-critical remorse phase as part of her "drying out".

It is easy to despise someone like her for the Aid and Comfort she gave the enemy, but in some ways she is just like Rosie O'Donnell, a deeply unhappy, lost person that needs prayers. After losing a child, one can probably never be totally happy again, but sometimes people can come to "grips" with the reality and the reason "why things are".

There are plenty of 9/11 widows/widowers, moms, dads, siblings,...that suffer in the same way, yet they don't make a spectacle of their grief. And they don't blame their own homeland and President for their loss.

It wil be interesting to see what her "next phase" is.

Sorry for the overuse of metaphors/cliches - this is just how it came out.
