Cindy Sheehan's book:
Peace Mom: A Mother's Journey through Heartache to Activism

"Writing this book is the second most difficult thing I have ever done, next to burying Casey."
"On April 4, 2004, Cindy Sheehan learned that Casey, the eldest of her four children, had been killed in Iraq, where he was serving in the United States Army. After struggling through crippling grief for three weeks, she came to an epiphany: 'I will spend my life trying to make Casey's sacrifice count for peace and love, not killing and hate.' "

How it started: Cindy Sheehan: one mother's stand
"The president says he feels compassion for me, but the best way to show that compassion is by meeting with me and the other mothers and families who are here. Our sons made the ultimate sacrifice and we want answers. All we're asking is that he sacrifice an hour out of his five-week vacation to talk to us, before the next mother loses her son in Iraq.."
