Sign on-line petition to stand in unity with those in D.C.
"A Gathering of Eagles" will take place on Saturday, March 17, 2007, in Washington, D.C. at the Vietnam Veterans Memorial -- "The Wall." Thousands are planning to attend and surround The Wall to protect it from anti-war protesters who threaten to vandalize it. Many thousands more would like to attend ... but for one reason or another are unable to do so.
Update: See "A Gathering of Eagles" video here.
Join those in D.C. in spirit by signing this online petition. It is now circulating the internet and was passed on to me by a U.S. Marine Corps veteran who plans to make the journey and join his veteran brothers at The Wall.
Here is the wording on the petition. Click to go to the site to sign.
Be a part of the wave ... join "A Gathering of Eagles"!
To: The Gathering of Eagles Participants
We, the undersigned, will (IN SPIRIT) be in Washington, DC, on March 17th. We can not attend but we want everyone at the "Gathering Of Eagles" to know that we are united with them as they ring the memorials to protect these hallowed monuments from defacement and dishonor.
We believe that our troops, current and prior, are true heroes and we will be honoring them all that day with our thoughts, our prayers and our actions. On that day, we intend to recognize and reflect on the sacrifice of our fallen heroes. We also pledge to pray for the safety of those who are able to attend. We thank them for representing all of us who love and respect our great country.
May God richly bless America and all those who truly appreciate her.
