The NO MORE BROKEN HEARTS rally      

...was SPECTACULAR!  As was the weather!

THANKS TO ALL WHO: cut out hearts, wrote names and ages of the fallen on them, bought the cord, strung the hearts, spray painted our broken heart logo on signs, made the signs (with those smelly markers!), sanded wood stakes, staple-gunned 200 stakes to 200 signs (twice!), passed out flyers, emailed, faxed and phoned the press, email-blasted friends, met with the city, rehearsed the music, brought friends to the rally, donated water, donated pens, came early to pitch in, picked up a sign, joined the march, waved to passing cars, sent us photos, sound and videos, and stayed to clean up.  Whew!

We'll be posting press coverage of the rally here as it comes in.

Did I tell you about the hearts?  45+ volunteers cut out 3,000 red hearts and wrote the name and age of one U.S. fallen soldier on each heart (see photos).

If all the hearts were strung together they'd reach 1/2 mile.

How much longer will this string of hearts get?
ENOUGH.  Our hearts are breaking.

BRING THEM HOME NOW.
