One mother shows us exemplary remembrance – it wasn’t for her own son.
During the 2012 Sea2Sea Challenge, at the Remembrance Ceremony held at Fort Leavenworth, Kansas, there were quite a few mothers in attendance at the whose sons gave the ultimate sacrifice for our country.
The names of those from Kansas were read in this ceremony. One mother heard all the names and then corrected our riders. Informing us that we had missed two names of soldiers from Kansas who had died for our freedoms.
She knew their names. She knew they had been missed. She remembered.
They will not be forgotten.
The “Remembrance of the Fallen” Ceremony is held on a daily basis by the Sea2Sea riders. During this time, names of soldiers who have died since 9/11 are read by those in attendance. It is a very moving ritual that Sea2Sea has discovered brings more meaning to their cross-country quest of creating awareness for troops, veterans and their families.
