Cindy Sheehan!

Cindy Sheehan, and others, are planning to fast until September 21st.  I wonder if a person can live that long fasting.  I think of Gandhi.  I suppose it is possible, and I feel concern.  She wants to know why we aren't all fasting until the troops come home.  I hear my stomach growling.  I know I will fuel soon.  I hear her plea, and, on this one, I am not able to agree.  I will continue to eat, and, somehow, on this one, I'm not feeling badly and I'm not sure why.  I think there is a place to ingest, and a way to speak.  She has lost her son.  Mine are still alive, and perhaps that is the difference.  I am trying to figure out the best ways I can be here for them, and, for me, in this moment, fasting does not appear to be the answer.  Perhaps, I am weak.  My cog, in this moment, is weak.  I don't have the energy I once had, though my feet are finally getting closer to normal.  Perhaps we each fight our battles our own way.  I admire Cindy Sheehan, and I can't join her in this fast.
