Through the Eyes of a PGR

Through the Eyes of a Patriot Guard Rider

"These Eyes, Our Eyes

These Eyes, our Eyes - have looked into the Eyes of a Parent, who had recently lost a son or daughter in “The War on Terrorism” In their eyes, Those Eyes we have seen the present and the past! In Those Eyes we have seen despair, regret, sorrow, tears, confusion, hate, sadness, mistrust! But in the same eyes Those Eyes, we have also seen love, faith, joy, hope, laughter, more love and most of all, pride and honor in the son or daughter who gave their life knowing that they were on the right side, the side that provides the freedom that we enjoy here in this great country each day.

These Eyes, our Eyes - have looked into the Eyes of a Wife or Husband whose loved one paid the ultimate price fighting “The War on Terrorism”. In Those Eyes we have also seen the same despair, regret, sorrow, tears, confusion, hate, sadness and mistrust! But in the same eyes Those Eyes, we have also seen love, faith, joy, hope, laughter, more love, understanding and again most of all pride and honor knowing that their loved one was doing what He or She wanted to do and who He or She believed in what they were doing was right for all of US.

But - These Eyes, our Eyes - have also looked into each other’s eyes, Those Eyes the eyes of our fellow Patriot Guard Riders. In these eyes, Our Eyes, we have seen, tears, compassion, regret, sympathy, but we have also found a sense of once again belonging to a group, of camaraderie, loyalty, of love and caring for each other, of hope and respect, and of new found friendships with each other. And we have seen friendships grow with the members of the families of the Fallen who know that we care and we’re there for them anytime, any place for whatever reason. These eyes, Our Eyes, the Eyes of a Patriot Guard Rider have seen more in the past 2 years then most people see in a life time but then, we wouldn’t have it any other way!

With Love and Respect for All, I Remain,

This speaks for me too. I wonder why it was deleted from PatriotGuard.org.
