Rose's - Heros

People who are those whom I admire and look up to as My Heroes! Everyday people who exhibit the highest degree of bravery and sacrifice,who have suffered grave injuries or death for the good of their fellow man. That includes those who did not face death or injury but who put themselves in place to do so if necessary. Also includes those civilians who have made great contributions to Mankind

Names and Faces

At the dedication of the Vietnam War Memorial in Washington, D.C. , The Wall, someone exclaimed, "The names! Oh, the names!" That glistening black wall bearing over 50,000 names was moving to the extreme.

In Dusty Rose's posted videos below it is the faces that move you to the extreme. "The faces! Oh, the faces!"

Sometimes I play the videos just to look at the faces. Some videos I turn off the sound and just gaze at the faces of these men who fought and many died. The pain, the grief, the loss! I did not know them, and yet I do know them. They are the sons and daughters of America - our sons and daughters - my sons and daughters.

The lower half of her August postings are also very moving, paying tribute to her many heroes. I watch them and "cry-baby", as she calls it. And as she does.

"The faces! Oh, the faces!"
