Some Important Stuff

Ok, I know I teased you all this morning with tawdry keywords and promises of more to come, and I will deliver. You know I always deliver, but I need to get serious for just a minute or two first. While I was off having a blast and getting covered in shaving cream and chocolate, there were men and women sucking it up in the desert and getting shot at. And I know there are arguments on both sides about why they are over there, and whether or not they should be and how long they should stay and, and, and. AND. And that’s all beside the point. The point is they are there, and they are going to be there for a bit yet, and they probably would like to be home, and that’s just probably not going to happen very soon, and almost definitely not before Christmas.

Adoration of the Magi by Don Lorenzo Monaco (1...Image via Wikipedia That’s why I am so pleased to tell you how YOU can do something to help make sure our soldiers know we are thinking about them. You can support a business that is donating a card for every service member overseas: one hundred and eighty thousand cards. That’s a hefty donation. They are giving the cards to Soldiers’ Angel’s for distribution, and if you aren’t familiar with Soldiers’ Angel’s, their motto is “May no soldier go unloved”. That’s a great sentiment, no matter what your political leanings, right?

Wanna know what you can do to help? Use for Business Christmas cards or for your personal ones. You need them anyway, and this way, you can do something for those who are doing something for you. It’s a pretty fair trade, don’t you think?
