HONOR OUR DEAD, BY TAKING CARE OF THE LIVING.

=( … as Ronald Regan said best: “They were not afraid to stand up for their country or, no matter how difficult and slow the journey might be, to give to others that last, best hope of a better future.
We cannot and will not dishonor them now and the sacrifices they’ve made by failing to remain as faithful to the cause of freedom and the pursuit of peace as they have been.
I will not ask you to pray for the dead, because they’re safe in God’s loving arms and beyond need of our prayers. I would like to ask you all—wherever you may be in this blessed land—to pray for these wounded young men and to pray for the bereaved families of those who gave their lives for our freedom.
God bless you, and God bless America.
On Monday, Feb. 14, 2011…Valentine’s day..a day of love… ‘greater love has no man than this, that a man lays down his life for his friends.’ John 15:13

On Monday, February 14th join us in an outreach movement to send a message to the White House:
(from the Wounded Warrior site): Visit the White House’s Facebook page and leave a comment, demanding that they direct implementation of this support NOW! To leave a comment, you’ll have to click the button to “like” the White House. If you’re not a fan, you can always “unlike” it after leaving your comment.
Suggested post: Mr. President, last May, you signed legislation directing the Department of Veterans Affairs to provide comprehensive support to wounded warriors’ family-caregivers. Under that law, families should be getting those needed services by now, but VA help seems still a year away. Mr. President, please cut through the red tape and direct implementation NOW! The families have already sacrificed so much!
Promises, but still no help, for those caring for wounded vets
