Cindy Sheehan (SHEE'-han) says she's never claimed to speak for all families of the soldiers killed in Iraq, but she says she's not the only one who needs answers about why Americans are dying.
Speaking to supporters today, she said she was overwhelmed by a
huge banner featuring her son's face when she returned to the anti-war protest camp yesterday. She had left the protest outside President Bush's Texas ranch to see her ailing mother in California.
Sheehan says wants to know "the noble cause our children die for." She has no quarrel with Americans who feel their loved ones died for a good reason, but she wants to make her son's death "stand for peace."
Families of some other Iraq war dead have criticized Sheehan's protest. They've launched a counterprotest and call the tour "You don't speak for me, Cindy."
