More families rise to share grief

Many of us have wondered how the Crawford protest would fare without Casey Sheehan's presence. Three days ago, Sheehan left to be with her mother in Los Angeles. More families of Iraq war dead have risen to share their stories.

Carlos Guerra's column today encouraged me about the resolve of the protesters. His gripping interview with Juan Torres is a stark reminder of the suffering that the families of our fallen soldiers endure.

Here is John Torres' memorial page at Fallen Heroes Memorial.

Pictures from week two, including a sorrowful photo of Juan Torres with Cindy Sheehan are archived at Cryptome.

Finally today, from my email, I wanted to share a link to Deena Berg's report from Wednesday's vigil.
