Phooey! Once again, it's just too far for us to jaunt right over to DC.
We've been to The Wall, as the names of two guys I knew since lst grade are on there. I traced their names on paper and I have it here at home. It is a greatly emotional experience to see all those names etched on The Wall. You can't help but realize their ultimate sacrifice as you stand there, alive, breathing, and with your husband or wife and your kids and feel almost guilty that all those names represent someone who gave up all that we have experienced in the 30-40 years since VietNam.
Nina, thank you so much for letting us know that Jimmy has been invited back to sing at The Wall. There is no better American I can think of with a bigger heart nor a more appreciative outlook than Jimmy. We're SO PROUD that he has been asked to come back again. What an honor for Jimmy! And, also, what a great privilege.
We wish Jimmy the best on his trip to DC. His being there will touch a lot more hearts not only when he sings, but when he gets a chance to talk about his unfailing respect for all American Vets of VietNam and all other wars that have cost thousands their lives.
God manages to put Jimmy in the right place at the right time, and we're so happy for him being able to do this. We know he will do it perfectly and straight from his heart.
