I'm late on this one, but I felt I had to re-blog it. If there's any chance that someone has not yet seen this post, I hope it touches your heart(s) as much as it did mine. This is truly amazing.
(Post is below my personal logos) MERRY CHRISTMAS!
CHRISTMAS AT ARLINGTON CEMETERY
Sometimes we wonder why the press doesn't take the time to enlighten the public about the Christmas tradition at Arlington National Cemetary
Rest easy, sleep well my brothers.
Know the line has held, your job is done.
Rest easy, sleep well.
Others have taken up where you fell, the line has held..
Peace, peace, and farewell...
Readers may be interested to know that these wreaths -- some 5,000 -- are donated by the Worcester Wreath Co. of Harrington, Maine. The owner, Merrill Worcester, not only provides the wreaths, but covers the trucking expense as well. He's done this since 1992. A wonderful guy.
Also, most years, groups of Maine school kids combine an educational trip to DC with this event to help out. Making this even more remarkable is the fact that Harrington is in one the poorest parts of the state.
Please share this with everyone on your address list. You hear too much about the bad things people do. Everyone should hear about this.
Courtesy of Cindy Jones, a fellow Active Rain member, this link takes you over to some photos she took this year when she was helping to place the wreaths.
Whether looking to buy or sell, we service the Greater Waterbury towns of Beacon Falls, Bethany, Cheshire, Naugatuck, Middlebury, Thomaston, Waterbury, Watertown and Wolcott
