Cindy Sheehan, mother of Casey Sheehan, a soldier who died in Iraq, has cancelled her trip to Colorado. She was scheduled to speak at three events, including one at a church in Glenwood Springs. The church dis-invited her, and she then decided to cancel the remaining speaking engagements .

The day after the church called off her visit there, Sheehan canceled other visits to the state, citing “more pressing needs elsewhere in the country,” according to Karen Sjoberg, director of Grand Valley Peace and Justice, which had arranged for one of the visits.
