Do you know who the Gold Star Mothers are? Up until today, I had not heard of them. I've been very blessed in life, not to be in their position.
Gold Star Mothers are women whose sons and daughters died while serving in the armed forces. These are mothers who have paid the ultimate price...mothers whose children made the ultimate sacrifice for our country.
Today, May 1, 2011, in Manchester, NH, the Gold Star Mothers Memorial Statue was dedicated to these women.
Mayor Ted Gatsas declared May 1 to be Gold Star Mothers day in Manchester.
Governor John Lynch declared May 1 to be Gold Star Mothers Day in New Hampshire.
I think EVERY DAY should be Gold Star Mothers Day in all our hearts.
Throughout the presentation today speakers asked that we spread the word and let others know about the Gold Star Mothers Memorial. They can use all the support they can get.

So, how did I come to be at this ceremony today?
That's a whole other post, and I'll save that for tomorrow...
