Thank you, Cindy

Photo shows Cindy Sheehan, peace activist and mother of a soldier killed in Iraq, speaking on Capitol Hill in Washington.
Sheehan, who galvanized the anti-war movement with her month-long protest outside President Bush's ranch, says she is quitting as the public face of the movement.
She is obviously suffering from burnout from the battle she has waged over the past couple of years. We owe her a debt of gratitude. She deserves time to rest and recuperate.
