The mother of a fallen U.S. soldier who started a quiet roadside peace vigil near President Bush's ranch last weekend is drawing supporters from across the nation. Dozens of people have joined her and others have sent flowers and food. One activist called her "the Rosa Parks of the anti-war movement." Cindy Sheehan, 48, of Vacaville, Calif., says she was surprised at the response. "Before my son was killed, I used to think that one person could not make a difference," she said Wednesday under a tent where she has slept since Saturday. "But one person that is surrounded and supported by millions of people can be heard."In the process of running this story, they're completely ignoring all of the information that has come out about her. They mention the previous meeting with Bush, but none of the comments that she made at the time or the comments of others who were at that meeting. There's no mention of the radical left-wing anti-war group that she "founded," or the article she had published in June in which she said "the biggest threat to our safety, humanity, and our way of life in America are George and his cronies." No mention of how she arrived in Crawford on a bus emblazoned with "Impeachment Tour." Nope, just another average American bereaved mother...
