As I read this post on Amy Galvez's blog "Through The Eyes of a Gold Star Mom" I
felt that it needed to be shared. Amy Galvez is a Gold Star Mother. A Gold Star Mother is a mother who has lost a son or daughter in the service of our country. Like my dear friend Diane her Blue Star turned to Gold. Diane had the honor of meeting President & Mrs. Bush this past

My Tribute to President George W. Bush

As the days count down to President Bush leaving office, a barrage of
emotions have come over me that I did not expect. I knew it would be hard for me
to see President Bush go, but these feelings caught me off guard. You see, the

family with three kids, then ages 12, 15 and 18. Life was hectic but nothing too
out of the ordinary. President Bush instilled confidence in me. I felt like he
had good insight and understanding and could get the job done. After 9/11 he
demonstrated an ability and strength of character that made me believe he was
the right man
at the right time, and that America would be well served by him. I
admired his determination and steadfastness to do what had to be done. I knew
that President Bush was driven by his depth of character, his core values and
beliefs, and his desire to always do what was best for America.
