Well, there is a lot to be said about the brave American troops that provide safety to our families each and every single day. I am not sure one can understand the sacrifices they make to fight for our nation. However, I encourage you all to check out THIS website and try.
A local Maryland hero was killed in action in late February, leaving behind his pregnant wife and 2 year old son. His beautiful wife has shown a tremendous amount of courage in the months since her husbands passing and is on a current mission to remember ALL the American troops lost during the wars on terrorism.
The mission is simple. She is holding a 5k race in memory of her fallen husband. En route to the race, she will be displaying American Flags...ONE flag for each member of our services who has died at war. Not only will the 5 THOUSAND flags on display help show just HOW many lives have been lost BUT the proceeds will be donated to help her children and other military families in need. SO, help her on her mission by supporting her cause...PLEASE? Only 5 bucks for each flag. And while I know money is tight for everyone these days, if you just give up ONE drink at the bar or ONE pack of cigarettes, you can help support our troops.
Just remember...while you are sitting at home spending time with your spouse, children, or just with yourself- someone is dying in the line of duty...they were fighting for YOU. Please visit www.bubbasbellyrun.com for more information.
