Sorry for the late report!
A rainy day for a Rally – but our sheepdogs are resilient and showed great cheer in the pouring rain. Several new faces joined us, and I salute your tenacity. This was a fabulous day all around.
In the photo below, the gentleman in the car displays the dogtags of his son currently serving in Iraq.
So many great things happened today – my favorite was a man named John Regan, who was stopped at the light about 3 cars back, and got out of his car, and walked in the rain to shake our hands on the sidewalk. And he showed us pictures of his HERO son (also named John) who is in Iraq fighting for us. This man was so appreciative, his eyes were filled with tears. In fact, he took his time, and when the light turned green – he stayed with us to talk a little more, he wears his son’s spare dogtags around his neck, he just kept saying, “Thanks for being here – you don’t know what this means to see all you people supporting my son, he’s behind a 50-calibur machine gun in Iraq right now.” And the traffice was behind him and you know what – nobody fussed about it. I think they knew what was going on.
Thank You, John Regan.
