OAKLAND, Calif., Oct. 6 - Peace mom Cindy Sheehan (shown hugging a supporter, right), after wrapping up her tour of the country, returned home Wednesday to northern California where she plans to continue her protest of the Iraq war.
The mother who staged a 26-day vigil in front of President Bush's Texas ranch this summer received a hero's welcome from a hometown crowd attending a fundraiser for anti-war groups.
"I'll be a grieving mom until I die because of the lies that took my son," said Sheehan, making her first public appearance in the liberal San Francisco Bay area since the August vigil. "I plan on keeping this up until the troops are brought home."
Sheehan's 24-year-old son, Army Spc. Casey Sheehan, died in April 2004 in Iraq.
She has spent much of the time since speaking out against the war. After the monthlong vigil in Texas, she traveled the U.S. and also met with politicians, including Sen. John McCain, R-Arizona, and Sen. Elizabeth Dole, R-North Carolina.
Last week, she was arrested with more than 350 other people after a protest outside the White House.
