The USS New York

October 13, 2009

Finally, some of what we lost returns, The USS New York, LPD-21, will parade into New York Harbor on Monday, November 2nd of 2009 for what will undoubtedly be the Commissioning event of the century. No other ship in world history carries the sentiment and import this ship possesses. In her bow is 7.5 tons of World Trade Center Steel, on her decks are the best and brightest crew this nation can produce and in our hearts, the hopes and dreams of a nation that will not be kept down. Please join us for the Feel Good America event of our generation, we all knew where we were when they fell, you want to be here when they return!

A Soldier's Funeral

October 12, 2009

Spc. James M. Kiehl was killed in action after his convoy was ambushed in Iraq on March 23, 2003. He was assigned to the 507th Maintenance Company, in Fort Bliss, Texas.

This is an email I sent to my church choir when I returned from James’s funeral in early April. I have received countless emails and phone calls about this, how emotionally powerful it is to read, and how it has circulated the Internet. It’s amazing how small our world is sometimes and just how much one person’s life, James’s, can touch so many others.
