Weekend Graveside

Greetings fellow readers – received this email this morning and wanted to share these images with you.  Next time I’m in Santa Barbara, I am going to ensure to see this beach. ~Akindman

"Got this email from a friend and wondered if it was true, so emailed our daughter-in-law, who grew up in Santa Barbara, and here is her reply:
Yes, they do this…it is very moving, sad.  Chris"

Santa Barbara

This first picture and the last picture are taken at the beach in Santa Barbara right next to the pier.

There is a veterans group that started putting a cross and candle for every death in Iraq and Afghanistan.

The amazing this is that they only do it on the weekends.  They put up this graveyard and take it down every weekend.  

Guys sleep in the sand next to it and keep watch over it at night so nobody messes with it.
Every cross has the name, rank and D.O.B and D.O.D on it.

Very moving! Very powerful!  So many young volunteers!  So many 30 to 40 year olds as well.

Did you know that the ACLU has filed a suit to have all military cross-shaped headstones removed? That they filed another suit to end prayer from the military completely?  They’re making great progress.

The Navy Chaplains can no longer mention Jesus’ name in prayer thanks to the ACLU and our new administration.

Keep forwarding this email to others. I’m not breaking this one. I’m that you not break it either.
