"2555 days have passed since we lost you, my sweet Christopher. I watch old videos in order to hear you talk, laugh, and watch that beautiful smile. But, videos do not allow me to feel your hugs, nor your presence. After 7 yrs, you would think the pain would ease...it has not. A Mother's love continues forever. I love you!"

"I never want to forget the sacrifices of so many young men and women. I am so proud it makes me cry. I understand in theory only that war is a part of human nature but so is love and caring. I wish I could take the families pain away but I can't. I am committed to loving ALL people, myself and our environment. I am committed to working on my happiness everyday because so many have died for my freedom to live my life. Thank you is not enough but it is all I have.
