I spoke by phone today to Medea Benjamin, who is in Crawford to support Cindy Sheehan. I can't tell you how amazing it is to suddenly find myself connecting with, and helping out, women I so deeply admire and respect. Medea has been mythical to me (and not just because of her mythical name--she is someone whose bravery continually astounds me.) I can't believe she was on the other end of my phone line! I am working on a new CodePink campaign now (it should go public on Monday--I'll keep you posted. It's a truly beautiful idea; I'm honored to be part of it.)
For more on Cindy Sheehan, be sure to visit her Code Pink blog. Salon also continues to provide great coverage of the vigil; here is their latest piece.
