I have pity for this woman.
I pity her for the fact that she lost her God-given son, whom she obviously loved like only a mother can do.
I also pity her for the emotional pain and suffering that she must be enduring - just like the thousands of other parents who have lost their children
in Iraq, but choose to grieve in private.
I pity her because she has oviously gone off the deep end, driven by grief and anger. I pity her because, whether she does so willingly or not, she
is being exploited by the anti-war movement and is being raised up by the media who have better things to report on.
I pity her because she already knows the answer to the question she wants to ask President Bush, and she already knows that she doesn't want to hear
that answer to that question. Therefore, why ask the question? It is obvious she is seeking an opportunity to embarrass and humiliate the President,
as a small form of satisfaction set against her loss. It is a undignified and petty reason, and I am sure that if her son were asked if he would like
to she her do that, his answer would surely differ.
I pity her because her entire family has distanced themselves from her, and has gone so far as to announce that fact to the media in general,
so that they may be left alone in their own grief. It seems obvious to me she had issues for some time, and that the announcement of divorce
proceeding by her husband only seems to cement that in place. When your entire family, including your husband, tells you to stop and then will no
longer associate with you, that is all I need to know.
While GWB may really be a weasel, and will duck this lady and take the low road, its probably the smart thing to do for all concerned. This lady
needs to go home, get into therapy, and apologize to her family. If the blood of thousands of US servicement aren't enough to change the mind of
GWB, I highly doubt the inane ramblings of a grief-stricken mon are going to have much more effect.
