About the Author

Cindy Sheehan, mother of the late Specialist Casey Sheehan, U.S. Army, is cofounder of Gold Star Families for Peace, an organization devoted to families who have lost loved ones in Iraq.


I support Cindy Sheehan in everything she does, whether it's running for Congress, or the president of the U.S. She's a great American, not afraid to stand up for what she believes in." - Willie Nelson

"More than any other single person, [Cindy Sheehan] changed the discourse about the war. She put a middle-American face on the antiwar movement at a time when it was widely caricatured as a ragtag collection of hippies, Stalinists, and movie stars. She forced the media--and the country--to acknowledge that antiwar feeling was widespread and growing and included even red staters, even military families. By her simple demand that Bush meet with her and explain why her son died, she pointed out the president's evasions and befuddlement and arrogance--the ban on photographs of coffins, his seeming lack of concern for the deaths of soldiers, his basic refusal to engage. No matter that she sometimes seemed to be conducting her political education in public. She was a mother wrenched out of her ordinary life by tragedy--that is a very powerful and inspiring symbolic role." -Katha Pollitt, San Francisco Chronicle, August 23, 2007

"What Cindy has done for our country is just miraculous and a mighty blessing. A thaw is felt throughout the land. People have started to speak, and their voices are being heard." --Martin Sheen

"If anyone wonders why Cindy Sheehan has emerged as perhaps the single most galvanizing figure in the antiwar movement in America, they have but to hear her speak or better yet read her new book, Not One More Mother's Child. Reading her book, one quickly understands the magnetism, the electricity she has generated in the peace movement. She speaks with a clarity, directness, and authenticity that remind us of how hungry we are for such voices in American politics." --Lewis Klausner, C-SPAN Book TV

"There is a rhythm and tempo in her prose which recalls the great epic writers of Greece. She has a gift of candor and directness and epic simplicity. Cindy ... is a born writer." --Dario Fo, Winner of Nobel Prize for Literature

"(Cindy is) more informed than most U.S. Congress people." --Chris Matthews, on Hardball

"Cindy Sheehan is a witness in the great tradition of Rosa Parks, Fannie Lou Hamer, and Harriet Tubman." --Reverend Jesse Jackson, quoted in The Village Voice

"Cindy Sheehan is the eloquent heart of the peace movement. To understand why, and why she will prevail, read this book." --Lew Rockwell,

"Cindy's is the final tear for the overflow and you can't stop running water." --Joan Baez

"Cindy is every soldier's mother. If my mom was doing what Cindy Sheehan is doing, I would want someone like me to support her." --Sean O'Neill, Iraq Veterans Against the War

"It is time for true patriots to stand in solidarity with Cindy Sheehan." --The Capital Times, Madison, Wisconsin
