There's something else this charity raises money for you should know about - The Gold Star Moms Programs. The charity brings U.S. military mothers who have lost sons and daughters in the War On Terror back to the area in Iraq or Afghanistan where their child was killed to reconnect with their sacrifice and hopefully bring some healing to their loss.
Sometimes I get discouraged when I watch the news and hear the idiotic stuff some of our citizens say and believe. It makes me want to not fight for them. But then I remember the letters, the packages, the banners and posters from American adults and children I've never even met, and I smile. THAT is worth fighting for.
