As Memorial Day approaches, Lifetime and A & E Network have joined together to help our country's Gold Star families (those who have lost a soldier). They filmed Gold Star spouses telling their stories and for each video view, they will donate $1.00 to a charity to help these dear families. LeeSandra Thibodeau, one of our spouses that lost her husband last deployment, posted this link to her facebook page asking people to visit the site. Her story is very familiar to the one I'm asking you to watch. Both women were just days into their pregnancy when notified of their husband's passing. Simply beyond comprehension!
This video is extremely emotional, and may not be for everyone. I've only been able to get through the first half of Nicki's story because I instantly picture myself as the woman on the other side of the lens, praying I'll never have to tell the same story she does. How strong these men, women, and children are! May God cloak them in peace this Memorial Day and every day thereafter!
