I am in from my hiatus at the request of another blogger. Jenn at Serving the Queens lost a family member last weekend. Sgt. Matthew Blaskowski came home from Iraq today. He died serving our country. A picture of him and Jenn's heartbreaking words are found here. What Jenn asked me to do; what she asked many of us to do, is invite people to leave comments on a tribute she is creating for his parents, Terry & Cheryl Blaskowski. She would like everyone to go to his page and post their words of support. The funeral is Thursday and she would like to present them with a card containing these comments at that time.
This is not about how you feel about the war. This is not about the place to take a stand. This is about a man who signed a piece of paper to serve his country, our country, no matter what, and the family that lost him. This is our chance to stand together and show them our love, our God, our support for their son, who is a hero for doing what so few would.
So please, go to this page and leave a comment. You do not have to have a blog of your own to leave a comment.
And if you feel lead, and I hope that you do, share the link to Matt's page on your own blog, or by email. I want Mr. and Mrs. Blaskowski to be blown away by the people that want to honor their son and the sacrifice he made for us all.
