WEST CHESTER VICTORY RALLY – 6/27/09. GOING GREEN – AMERICAN SHEEPDOGS SHOW SUPPORT FOR BRAVE PROTESTORS IN IRAN WHO ARE BEING MURDERED AS THEY STAND UP AGAINST THE BRUTAL REGIME OF AHMADINEJAD
A huge turnout for our rally today. We wore green wristbands as a show of solidarity with the brave protestors in Iran who are being beaten, shot and taken away in the middle of the night because they dare to stand up against the brutal dictator and mullahs that are oppressing those who want freedom.
Military moms Evie (her hero son is an Army Combat medic recently home from Afghanistan), Mary (her hero son is a Marine Officer recently home from Iraq), and Mary Lou (her hero son is serving in Iraq right now) recite the Pledge of Allegiance. Our rallies bring out the best of America.
Youngster Scott shows his love for our troops as he salutes during the singing of the Star Spangled Banner.
Below, another Military Mom, Maureen (her hero son is a young Army officer, training overseas right now) stands with her friend Marion.
Above, “Uncle Bill” stands in support of his hero nephew who is serving in Iraq right now.
All of us wore green wristbands in the hope it will inspire other Americans to show similar support for the courageous people in Iran. For years American leadership has encouraged the people to rise up against the brutal Ahmadinejad regime, and when they finally do, they got a tardy and weak response from Obama who they were counting on for support. Most distressing is the way the barbarian regime is going after the Iranian women. Shooting them (like Neda). Our hearts are wrenched as we watch them being massacred. The press is unwilling to cover the killings, but we hope our little show of support will bring awareness to the atrocities being committed to those who seek freedom.
This young Army National Guard Private told me “Thanks for being here, your support means a lot”. His name is John and he graduated from Hendersen High School a year ago. His T-shirt says, “BOOTS DON’T MAKE A SOLDIER, A REAL SOLDIER MAKES THE BOOTS.” Hoorah! And “Thank you Private, for your service to our great country – you truly are one of our greatest patriots!”
Thanks to everyone who came out to support our Troops and those who fight for freedom. See you next week.
