I had no idea this was being done. I thought you might want to see it.
A high school alumni sent this in -- and you may have gotten it from someone in your email box as well. However, I agree with the author's closing -- we hear far too much about evil deeds in the world -- I believe if we spent as much time talking about the good deeds, the world would be a much better place.
Readers may be interested to know that these wreaths -- some 5,000 -- are donated by the Worcester Wreath Co. of Harrington, Maine. The owner, Merrill Worcester, not only provides the wreaths, but covers the trucking expense as well. He's done this since 1992. A wonderful guy.
Also, most years, groups of Maine school kids combine an educational trip to DC with this event to help out. Making this even more remarkable is the fact that Harrington is in one of the poorest parts of the state (and Maine is far from being a wealthy state). Please share this with others -- you hear too much about the bad things people do. Everyone should hear about this.
Rest easy, sleep well my brothers.
Know the line has held, your job is done.
Rest easy, sleep well.
Others have taken up where you fell,
the line has held.
Peace, peace, and farewell...
Thanks for reading...
