Default Most Awesome Validation of what Quilters do!!

I received this in an e-mail, and I had to share. Please watch it.
Not sure how to post a link, but if the link doesn't work, just go to youtube and search for 2012 Miami Quilts of valor. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uzT4bKmLJvg

I also am in tears. Thank-you for sharing this with us here. I made a couple of blocks and sent them in for this project. We are so lucky to have these kind of people in our country. God does bless us here in the USA.

I have to admit when I went to the video and saw that it was 11:28 long, I thought to myself "I don't have 11 and 1/2 minutes to watch a video" Well that was the best 11 min 28 sec cry I have ever had! I am so proud of the men and women that have fought for our freedom and I pray to God everyday that they can all come home and be with their families and loved ones and that there doesn't have to be anymore injuries and deaths. God bless all those Quilts of Valor quilters, there is a special place in heaven for each of you, that is for sure!!!

The quilt group at our church has done American Hero Quilts for wounded soldiers at Madigan Hospital in Steilacoom, Wa. But we have never had the privilege of actually giving them out personally. What a blessing! Thanks for sharing.
