For the Families of our Fallen Heroes
September 27, 2015

Light a luminary on Gold Star Family Day.

Please pledge your support for this special day and encourage your community to light luminaries.

Our goal is to have as many communities as possible in each state to support the families of our Fallen Heroes. There is power in numbers and together we can show Gold Star Families that we are a grateful Nation.

"Greater love has no one than this: to lay down one's life for one's friends"
John 15:13 (NIV)

It could be argued that an even greater love does exist; that of a parent for their child. Tragically, in the last decade, almost 7,000 families have been forced to deal with the utterly devastating heartbreak that sometimes accompanies that love as their children laid down their lives for their country.

Most of us have not experienced this tragedy. Most of us never will. We can't relate personally or begin to imagine what that must be like. What we can do, however, is honor and recognize these families. We can thank them for the sacrifices they and their children have made on our behalf. We can let them know that, no matter what, we support and stand behind them as a country and that, if even just for a day, their burden is our burden too.
