Cindy Sheehan Fast Diaries Part IV
The hunger seems to have subsided; now I just feel exhausted all the time. I've been drinking plenty of water.
Apparently some of the right-wingers
don't believe that we are serious about this.Provided we do not withdraw our troops before then, on Columbus Day we will conduct a roll call of your corps. If by that time any or all of you are still among us, we will know that you have furtively and cynically violated the terms of your solemn pledge, since no one has ever survived a genuine hunger strike for more than seventy days.
Well, that last bit made me a little nervous, because I'm supposed to hold out for about 61 days, which seems to be cutting it pretty close. But I can tell you that Diane Wilson and Dick Gregory are going to stick with the fast until the troops come home. Diane looks like she can last awhile, if you know what I mean, but Dick doesn't look like he has any meat on his bones. I'm worried he won't even make it to September.
Sean left for Hollywood yesterday; good riddance! I couldn't resist asking him if he had to be there for his next film. Of course he made me pay for it by reciting a list of the restaurants he'd be eating at in the next few days and the specialties of the house.
