Keeping Your Dignity

Perhaps Cindy Sheehan could learn something from this gentleman (and I use that word purposely):

Jeff Hubbard, the retired California police officer who lost two sons in Iraq, spoke to reporters for the first time since the death of his son U.S. Army Cpl. Nathan Hubbard, who was killed last week in a Blackhawk helicopter crash.

Despite his family's devastating loss, Hubbard told reporters that his support for the country's campaign to combat global terror is undiminished. "We just want people to support the nation in what it's doing to make the world a better place," he said.

It's a good thing that people like the Hubbard family still exist in our society.

I wonder -- will Mo Dowd and the rest accept that he has unchallengeable moral authority on the war -- and therefore shut up and quit opposing victory in Iraq? After all, he's lost two sons, which I believe trumps Sheehan's moral authority by one.

Or do they really believe that the only family members of dead soldiers with moral authority are those who disgrace their hero and oppose the war?

I'll assume your question was rhetorical.

I heard him speak as well. What a sacrifice and what ultimate bravery he demonstrated. Sadly we are becoming a nation of cowards.
