These people are too awesome. You’ll be glad you took the time to watch:
Erick Brockway explains:
A young wife says goodbye to her husband as he deploys overseas. In the back of her mind, like a nagging ghost she refuses to see, is the thought he may not return alive.
One day, a government vehicle pulls up in front of her home, and the uniformed servicemen and women come to the door with solemn expressions on their faces to deliver the news;
“The President and the Department of Defense regret to inform you…”
A life of worry becomes one of trepidation, angst, and then intense sorrow as one by one, family members hear the sad tidings.
Somehow they carry on, being visited by the Casualty Assistance Officers, visiting informational websites, and finally making funeral arrangements to say goodbye to their departed loved one/hero.
Then, the unthinkable. Some whacked-out supposedly “Christian” church is planning to protest at their loved one’s military funeral, with signs saying God supposedly killed their hero because “God hates fags“. When life seems to be at its lowest point for the survivors, a group of pseudo-Christians steps up to make bring more pain and make life worse.
In step the Patriot Guard Riders…
Click over and read the rest.
The same US Constitution which gives the hateful Westboro mob the right to protest at military funerals also gives the Patriot Guard Riders the same rights to freedom of assembly and freedom of speech – to counter those who would dishonour the men and women who sacrifice all to protect it.
Good on them.
