Valor and Honor

Daily Draw: Tarot of the Sephiroth ~ Hanged Man

Total immersion and the symbology surround him with the Fool, Death, and Moon. The red, white, and blue are what jump out at me.

Military service is awash in these four majors, hurry up and wait, followed by chaos, back to hurry up and wait. All accomplished to someone else's tune.
Our active and retired military, often hidden in plain sight after prior wars, are now being shown the respect due them, at least by quilters.

Quilts of Valor   Quilts of Honor   Quilts Presented Already

Quilts of Valor, and Quilts of Honor are working in a concrete way to give all veterans a permanent hug. 200,00 thousand quilts have been given, 1000 this month alone. Know an active or retired veteran?  You only need ask.

  3. I knew of the group that sews quilts for injured soldiers, but not these who give them to veterans - great idea!

I welcome your thoughts. Good bad or indifferent; opinions are the lifeblood of conversation and I always learn something from a new point of view. Thank you for visiting, Sharyn
