"The anti-Cindy"

Via Chairman Alday:

(AP) The mother of a Marine killed in Iraq urged mourners Wednesday not to let their anger and sadness turn them against the U.S. fight in Iraq.

“Honor me in this way,” Kathy Dyer said during a memorial service for Lance Cpl. Christopher J. Dyer, 19, of the Cincinnati suburb of Evendale.

At the funeral at Tri-County Baptist Church, Kathy Dyer delivered what she believed would have been her son’s own message: “It has been with the greatest pride I have served … fighting to preserve freedom.”

She said he would want mourners to continue supporting the troops in the war against terrorism.

For every Cindy Sheehan willing to dishonor her son's sacrifice, there have got to be thousands of mothers who are rightfully proud of their sons for securing our way of life. Unfortunately they aren't as popular with the media.
