There is a veterans group in Santa Barbara that started putting up a cross and candle for every death in Iraq and Afghanistan. The amazing thing is that they only do it on the weekends.
They put up this graveyard and take it down every weekend.
Volunteers sleep in the sand next to it and keeping watch throughout the night.
Every cross has the name, rank and D.O.B. and D.O.D. on it.
This is a very moving, very powerful, tribute to the many young volunteers, and many 30 to 40 year olds as well.
Even more amazing....the ACLU has filed a suit to have ALL military cross-shaped headstones removed!
They have another suit to end prayer from the military COMPLETELY……..and they are making great progress.
We need to NEVER forget that our freedom is not free…..it is paid for with the life’s blood of countless soldiers….but, it is also OUR RESPONSIBILITY to safeguard what they have fought to provide. The time is past when the we can be a “silent majority!” We must speak up and take action to insure that the United States stays a constitutional republic. American’s must stand up to keep it America!
