But they also need you to spread the word about Spirit of America. The have several excellent programs, such as the Iraq School Partners, Vests for Afghanistan Police Forces, and establishing an agricultural co-op.
These are vital projects for these blighted areas. As a Marine stationed in Iraq said,
It has been a while since we last spoke, but we have been extremely
busy here in the violence ridden Al Anbar province. We have lost a significant number of Marines and friends. We have not been able to assist the people because those that want the country to remain in turmoil, keep blowing us up and killing those who are trying to get this country back on its feet. I don’t know how long it will be, or even if, before we will be able to assist the people who are in need
of our help. That poem hits home more than most people know. The insurgents want the populace afraid to make decisions. They also want them ignorant, and without choices. Unfortunately, democracy cannot be theorized, it has to be implemented. In this case, implementation is by our commitment to the world that we will not leave this undone this time. I hope, with all of my heart, that people appreciate the
sacrifices that these heroes are giving for their family, friends, countrymen, and the entire free world. They have/are giving their lives so that others may live in freedom. That is no small task and is hardly ever appreciated.
Help Spirit of America in any way you can.
