The madres de la Plaza de Mayo the mothers of the Plaza de Mayo through their persistence, their maternal instinct their unequivocal universal truth exposed the murderous campaign that the Argentine government had waged against its own people and they toppled the government.
What Cindy Sheehan is doing in Crawford, Texas is no less significant. Mrs. Sheehan is only the first. Others must follow if we hope to make sense of what a majority of Americans now consider to be senseless killings in Iraq.
The president may continue to ignore Cindy Sheehan. He may even have her arrested as has been rumored as a threat to national security. But there will be more Cindy Sheehans. And just as in Argentina truth will prevail.
