Your site touched me deeply. I'm honored for you to have the Healing Hurting Hearts
Award -- for my father, who witnessed Pearl Harbor, and my son who served in the
Gulf -- for an ex-husband who still has his VietNam nightmares and for the father of
my children who served in Viet Nam and died in '96... bless you all in your healing


Thank You again Laura

Thank You, Debbie.And all at
Rolling Thunder

Brought together over 150,000 motorcyle riders to ask for the
governments help in finding and returning our POW-MIA's. This year
Rolling Thunder XI was held on May 24, 1998. For most of us, the ride
began in the early dawn hours, as we rode to different locations,
meeting up with more and more friends along the way, until we were all
gathered together at the Pentagon parking lot. The parking area was
full of bikes, thousands of people joined together for one common
goal, to get our message across to the government. At noon we began
to ride out, 3 & 4 abreast, and the roar of the thousands of bikes did
sound like thunder. We rode through Washington DC, to our final
destination, the Vietnam Veterans Memorial. The streets were lined
with over 350,000 people, from babies, to the very old, all clapping,
cheering, and some openly sobbing, reaching out, to touch our hands,
and our hearts, and to say "Thank You..For Remembering."
