"… An eagle knows when a storm is approaching long before it breaks. The eagle will fly to some high spot and wait for the winds to come. When the storm hits, it sets its wings so that the wind will pick it up and lift it above the storm. While the storm rages below, the eagle is soaring above it." ~An unknown author~
Bring your flags! Join us as we walk around the State House in support of the Eagles in DC.
At home for every man or woman who defends and ensures our liberty and protects the shores of America are the mothers who nurtured them into adulthood. We are mostly the silent majority who just encourage and support our military sons and daughters. We are extended by mothers whose blue stars turned gold when their son or daughter gave the ultimate sacrifice for the freedoms ALL Americans enjoy. We are the Blue and Gold Star Mothers of NH. Together we support our troops as they head towards Victory in the battles they encounter to protect the people and the borders of America.
On Saturday, March 15th, from 10:30am to 12:30pm we will assemble in front of the LOB with veterans, past, present and future who have served in the armed forces of these United States of America in support of the Americans Standing Up: CAll to Arms is to stand in solidarity with our armed forces in harm’s way today.
In the words of Lt. Col. Steve Russell, USA retired, we should make no apologies. “What shall we say? What more can we give to our nation than the type of sacrifice we have already given? What words can we the soldiers use to convince Americans at home that the biggest mistakes being made in this war are on the home front, not the battlefront? What will be the value of temporary civilian comforts and the illusion of national safety when a giant shadow of Islamic terrorism is casting itself onto our shores? What will be the meaning of the rhetoric and the political debate when we sift through the rubble of a workplace, a shopping mall or public transit—digging out American bodies targeted for no other reason than because of our way of life and who we are as a people? It is a scene that every soldier who has witnessed it abroad will fight with all his might to keep away—but we never thought that our own people would betray our efforts.”
We the Blue and Gold Star Mothers say YES to supporting our troops to Victory.
