    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.

    Never argue with an idiot. They'll drag you down the their level and beat you with experience.

    It was a wonderful video, I have given to quilts of Valor. It felt like I got to see my quilts being given, even though it was'nt. Lots of tears here to be sure. Thanks so very much from a very humble heart. We are to be proud of all our vets.

    Your link worked great. What a tearjerker this was. So many young people have sacrificed for our freedom. I wonder how many people realize how young our vets are.

    Wow. That was awsome. I am still choked up. Am so proud of our quilters, but not as proud as I am of our soldiers. All of them. My grandson served in Iraq and came home physicaly fine, but mentally was deeply wounded. He is now leading a productive life, has a wife, daughter and son but I know how hard he worked to get back to "normal". God Bless America and all of those who serve or have served her so bravely.

    Thank you for sharing this video. It made me cry and wish all of America would do more for our Vets. They give so much and receive so little thanks in return.

    I cried through the whole thing. Such young men that have lost so much for the benefit of our country. I did not see one veteran who was not smiling. The quilts of valor is a wonderful program.

    Thank you for posting this. My husband is Navy so I have a soft spot for military, especially wounded military. We were so blessed that he was never injured in the line of duty, but he seems to be in the minority. God bless our military personnel. Thank you all for your service.
