This would make an interesting story,someone from the Inlander should run and interview him while he´s in the area,just my opinion.Very good idea this guy had
So running and putting little pieces of cloth on the ground (aka littering) does exactly what for our Servicemen except BRING THEM HOME?
I get tired of these flag waivers who do the "feel good" things that really have no meaning.
I´ll tell you exactly what Mike´s run does for our servicemen. It honors their lives. It lets their families know that we value their loved one´s sacrifice .... that we value them.
There certainly is meaning to what you call a "feel good" thing. It is a statement of gratitude and respect for their service. I would hope that, regardless of our opinions of the war, we all can take time to think of them and their families with respect and gratitude.
It´s sad that you are not able to understand that.
It´s disappointing to see that your question hasn´t been responded to civilly by some. I guess it shows how deeply this issue affects people. Your apparent frustration seems to have sparked the same in others.
It´s understandable that you would like to see our fellow country men & women home where they´ll be safe and hopefully get the time and support they need to heal from all they´ve seen and experienced. Try extending that level of concern to those who didn´t get the chance to come home, to the loved ones they left behind. Mike´s sole intention is to honor those men and women; to pay tribute IN HIS OWN WAY. As Ms. Rice points out, you can get your questions answered by taking the time to visit the website or by calling Project America Run directly. I´ve committed my time and energy for the benefit of others many times in my life, but an effort of this magnitude I can only see as heroic--the stuff I wish more humans were made of.
