Sometimes You Have To Stand For Something
Today I had the honor and privilege of standing with the Patriot Guard. Big D and I traveled to Lubbock, TX in support of a cause that both of us care deeply about. I posted about this cause earlier in this post. I had explained then that there was no way that I could stand idly by and let these religious nutjobs demean a hero who had gave the ultimate sacrifice in defense of our country.
Big D and myself stood with the riders at the funeral home while others were at the church. There were about ten of the Westborough wackos at the church but left early and did not come to the funeral home. The memorial service is tomorrow and my step-daughter and me will be there to stand again. It has been said that you have to stand for something or you will fall for anything.
I was proud of the many people that drove by and honked, waved flags, or cheered encouragement and blessings. I am most proud of these riders. Many traveled long distances in a short time to devote their time and effort to the most important of causes; the sanctity and dignity of another human being.
As the patch on one riders vest proudly stated, ' A nation which forgets it's defenders will also be forgotten. '

For those West Texas Readers and Bloggers the Patriot Guard and supporters will meet at 9:00 a.m. at the Academy Parking Lot on 19th Street. Your support would be more than welcome.
I will be posting some pictures tomorrow when I get back at FuzzTexas. *** posted***
