"we have the same pain"

It would be a monumental mistake for us to get into a fight with military families (both Blue and Gold Star) who still support Bush. As I said previously, this is precisely what Bush wants us to do.

Once again, Cindy Sheehan shows the way:

And there are other people who disagree with our position who have lost their children. I know with Karen here, and Melanie and Susan, we respect their rights to their opinions. At the end of the day…or at the beginning of this quest, we started in the same way — with our loved one coming home in a flag-draped coffin. And if there is any family who says that they believe their child died for a noble cause, I say that is your right, if that helps you get through the day, if that helps you in your pain. Because we might not have the same politics, but trust me, we have the same pain. And we do what we have to do to get through our pain, and we hope they respect us for that. We respect them in any way they have to do to get through their pain.
