TheMother'sDay Project http://mothersdayproject.wordpress.com
started by Anne http://threadingwater.wordpress.com ,
Remembers all the women who lost their lives in the course of the Iraq War.
The project involves 2 totes, one with 79 names of these women, and the second, 79 more plus one more woman that died after this project began.
Volunteers (of which I am proud to be one of) will stitch each name on a piece of muslin, ( I just finished stitching Denise's name) Anne will then make the totes wth all the names on them. When this is complete, the totes will be passed among the volunteers that took part, each will have the tote for a week or two, then pass it on to another volunteer.


Before I started to stitch her name I went to http://icasualties.org/oif/female.aspx , and read about Denise, and many others listed there. I felt saddened at unnessesary countless loss of lives.


It is my fervent wish that one day, as the song states "THE WORLD WILL LIVE AS ONE".
