They Died for – US- Lorain Dude

May 30, 2010 at 12:06 am 3 comments

I went back to the church on the corner , it was where I was given my name. Only this time it was different. I didn’t have to get all dressed up , although after hearing what my Poo Bah and Nag Nog were saying, maybe I should have.

This weekend is very special apparently , everyone says thank you and remembers all the men and women who died serving this country .

We put out a call that ” we, the future need you ” and you the brave , who will now never grow old so that we may , answered that call

The church on the corner ( Christian Temple Disciples of Christ) also remembers that we are still at war and every day another mother and father loses their son or daughter, a wife her husband, a husband his wife, kids like me lose their daddies and mommies just so I can live free and proud of my home.

This year there were 5,477 ( and counting) flags put in the “garden of remembering” and there are thousands of family and friends who miss them, cry for them and millions who thank them for their sacrifice.

THANK YOU !!!! to all the people from all the wars who let me live and grow in freedom and keep my mummy safe.

ED: NOTE.. The Christian Temple Disciples of Christ will need help in gathering in the display flags on Tuesday and just a reminder the flags cost money so please if you can spare a few dollars I know the people at Christian Temple would be very appreciative.

    Well done!!

    Thank you and Lisa for doing this. My tribute was driving down to North Carolina to visit my sis-in-law and her hubby, who is about to be re-deployed to Iraq. So I spent the weekend with them and their almost-2-year-old.

    Pictures to come.
