This does a heart good.

I think this is one of the most touching video’s I’ve seen in a long L-O-N-G time.

    I think this is a great video. I cannot nor will I ever understand how these people are so brainwashed into believing that soldiers dying are our punishment for homosexuality. The way it should be is it is to damn bad that soldiers have to die for these idiots and their distorted beliefs.

    How wonderful that these Marines show up to protect the families of fallen soldiers! I’d really like to see those picketers get bitch-slapped, but then they’d probably file an assault charge! They haven’t any excuse to terrorize and demean the families who are already struggling to deal with the death of their loved one. And thank you to everyone who posted the message to “THE IDIOTS” on their fb pages!

    I am most disturbed by the fact that some of the people holding those hate signs are children. But really glad to see folks come together to block that filth out and honor the dead and the military.

    When our son-in-law was KIA on Feb 19, 2007 the funeral home that was handleing the ceremony got a FAX from these wacos saying they were going to show up. We also had hundreds of Patriot Guard Riders show up.

    They first met us when Buddy’s remains arrived at our airport and (along with police escort) escorted us to the funeral home. On the day of the funeral they lined the drive into the funeral home. Then they rode in the funeral procession and when our limo pulled up at the grave yard there were too many PGRs holding flags along the route inside the cemetary to count. It truly was a sight to behold.

    We will be forever grateful to t he South Carolina Patriot Gard Riders for the way they honored Sgt. Buddy James Hughie and his family. In fact if we are Facebook friends you may notice postings from Randy “Steam” Stevens. He is the leader of the SCPGRs and we have become good friends over these last four years.

    The scumbag, wacos never did show up… that Iam aware of.

    I love that these guys not only show up everywhere, but that it didn’t take an act of Congress or a corporate sponsor or anything else to get it going. That they just banded together, hundreds – maybe thousands – of people, getting together to do what’s right, simply because it’s right.

    I rest easy knowing that someday, some how, those Westboro people will get their comeuppance. Karma isn’t an easy thing to circumvent.

    I do have to say, though, that it really ticks me off that everybody and their brother knows who Westboro Baptist “Church” is, but how many people are as familiar with the Patriot Guard? Shame on the press for that one.

    I am very touched by what they do for the family of the fallen soldiers. That is true compassion. I cannot imagine that people can go that far in their hateful thoughts and actions. I am convinced those people do not have all their marbles in the right place. Thanks for sharing this with us, Joy. It does indeed do the heart good.

    This was so moving. I loved it, and I’m glad I saw it. I’m even more glad that we have wonderful human beings like this.
