As you awaken this Sunday, you may notice that you forgot to turn back your clocks last night. Yes, this is the day on which we all literally turn-back the hands of time, which is just what the families and friends of those killed by illegal aliens wish they could do, if only to gaze upon the face of their loved ones, just once more.
On November 3, 2011, Rep. Steve King (R-IA) announced his sponsorship of a resolution to honor those Americans killed by illegal aliens. The Congressman joined with citizen advocacy groups the FIRE Coalition and the Immigration Tea Party Coalition in support of National Remembrance Day, to be held the first Sunday of every November.
For those lost, there are no wreath-laying ceremonies, no twenty-one gun salutes, nor will there even be a moment of silence at today’s football games.
Those who are left behind truly suffer in silence.
What follows is a short list of ideas on how you can honor the fallen:
• Fly your American flag at half-staff in front of your home or business
• Gather with neighbors, family, and friends in the town square, in front of city hall, or in a park for a candlelight vigil
• If you know a family who has lost someone at the hands of an illegal alien, reach out to them and let them know they are not alone
• If you attend church services, say a prayer for the victims as well as for their grieving families and ask your fellow parishioners to do the same
• Place a candle in a window at dusk
Please take a few moments today to remember our fellow citizens and legal immigrants who were stolen from us.
