Camp Casey 1
The first Camp Casey affects me more emotionally than Camp Casey 2. The giant tent and platform stage and speakers at Casey 2 calls to mind an planned, organized event. And certainly with the number of people here, organization is vital.
But it is the camped-in-a-ditch determination of Casey 1 that radiates with the raw grit of Cindy Sheehan's stand. The heavy, sweaty paw of summer knocks you out here on the wide open high plain. There is no comfort for a lone soul here except in the companionship of others. And they too have to suffer to stay with you. Unbelievable.
