Thank You

Thank you for fighting for our freedoms.

Freedom where little girls can walk down the street without fear.

We read the names and we thank you.

Know that you died for us. For us to be kids. For us to grow up. To be free.

We place our hands over our hearts. We clap.

This Veterans Day, we thank you for the sacrifices you made to ensure that we can grow up without fear. To grow up happy and healthy. To grow up free.

Hey, I work with www.mochaclub.org, a non-profit that works in Africa. I saw that you were on the NaBloPoMo list, and we'd love for you to blog about our new campaign on Nov. 24th. The campaign is centered around this idea – at Mocha Club, we have always cared about building an accurate perception of both the challenges that Africans face, and the BEAUTY of Africa. We need bloggers to help get the word out. Please email our director at barrett[at]mochaclub[dot]org if you would be interested in hearing the details!
