RIP Alex - 6 years gone by
Many of my students and many of my readers of this blog know about Alex because I talk about him often. If you would like to read more about Alex and what a wonderful kid he was go here and this post too.
Alex served his country and gave his life. There are many Americans who just complain about everything and don't get involved with making our country a better place for all of us to live. One VERY EASY WAY you can serve your country is to VOTE! Today is the day for us here in Florida and in many states for us to go decide who we want to hire to run our states, our county and our cities. When we don't use our freedom Alex and all his friends from so many years past gave to us... we allow the crazies to take over.
So if you don't want to do it because you don't care about the future of our country, state, county and cities... Do it for kids like Alex who gave their life for this country. Many people have stepped up to protect this country for hundreds of years for your right to vote. The least you can do to honor their life is to vote today! PLEASE VOTE! And if you want to do more than vote and don't want to serve in the military you can always become a candidate because we need better people running for these offices.
dear Alex, You are with me often.. smiling. I'm so happy you're full of smiles in heaven. Your precious life was taken so young. Only 20yrs old on your second tour in Iraq. Honey, you are such a brave soul!! Rest in peace sweet child.... rest in peace until you are with your loved ones once more..... You are loved so much!
Until next time, Enjoy your moments ~ make them "sew" much fun, Cindy
