I find this not only amazing, but it also touches my heart. (HT to Marli for sending me this) WC
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.
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.
To all our troops and their families, know that we love you, appreciate you and pray for you. Merry Christmas.
Update: While cruising the net tonight I also found this guy who is sending Christmas trees to the troops. Unfortunately, they’re done for 2007 but they are accepting donos for 2008. I love this stuff!
