A Warrior's Mother

There is a link here to a wonderful Video PLEASE TAKE THE TIME TO VISIT IT AND WATCH YOU WILL LOVE IT. SARGE CHARLIE, MISS BEE, LINDA, MICHELE, SHANNON AND SANDEE.... MAKE SURE YOU WATCH THIS!!!!

"Tis the star-spangled banner, oh! long may it wave,
O'er the land of the free, and the home of the brave."


..what a great lady is this Kaziah. Unable to have children of her own due to ovarian cancer she has 'adopted' the fallen sons of others and preserves their memories in art for the parents of the fallen.

YOU will regret it if you don't view this clip and after having done so I'm betting my last dollar that you will forward it on to many of your friends and relatives.

Absolutely a wonderful lady and a wonderful story.

If I could get it to play I would watch it. I've tried 5 times now. Just get a square where the video should show. I can watch any of the other videos though. Weird. I'll try later. :)

I rebooted and finally got to watch it. What a great lady and artist to do this for the fallen. How wonderful.

How come we don't hear about her in the news? Only the bad stuff, never good stuff like this. I hope God always blesses this dear woman. Thanks for sharing a wonderful video Callie Ann. You are the greatest my friend. :)

That my friend was awesome... We need to find out where you could donate for her frames, oil and canvas... What an awesome gift she has and is giving; made my heart warm...

Amazing Gracie said...

Yeah, a tissue alert is needed for this. What a remarkable woman! Watching the look in the dad's eyes when he sees his son's portrait is what finally got me. Wow.

Michele said...

This was absolutely stunning. Incredible. Definitely a box of kleenex is in order. Wonderful post Callie. Thanks for sharing.

Sarge Charlie said...

Gracie was right, tissue alert was required, but sometimes it feels good to cry, I loved this......

Linda said...

I've got to agree with everyone else - a tissue was definitely needed but in a good way instead of a sad one.

What an awesome woman to do that and to bring these men and women "back to life" for their families.

I can only imagine the number of smiles she has given to people who have suffered one of the worst losses possible.

Thank you for sharing this!!
