Petty Officer Wetmore – Navy Hero

We hear a lot about heroes, especially in a time of war. It is often an overused word, diluted by those that exaggerate all things. There are heroes to be found outside the area of direct combat, and I would argue there are more to be found in our neighborhoods and friends.

In a disposable society: where we dispose of everything from out-of-fashion clothes early to unwanted children, Aviation Ordnanceman First Class (AW) Wetmore his wife Tami and daughter Kendra deserve our respect, support, and
acknowledgement of doing great things.

Their daughter Juliana was born with
Treacher Collins syndrome. In summary, those born with this syndrome are born without a face. The written word does not do this justice, neither does my limited prose.

Take some time to follow the
links and learn more about the strength we can find in our Shipmates and their families.

Especially if you have kids of your own,

watch the video
. Look past Juliana’s obvious “challenges”, and watch her just be a kid. She acts just like my girls at that age, and that is how we should all look at her, just a girl. Made me think a lot.

As is always a good thing to do when we see everyday people rise to the challenges brought their way, think how you would react, how you would cope. I have found such reflection gives one plenty of things to add to the supper blessing.

BZ. Oh, for my little part, I will withhold my AO jokes for a day or two.

If you are interested in helping the Wetmore family, a savings account has been set up for donations at the VyStar Credit Union in Middleburg, Fla. Donations can be made to Juliana Wetmore at member number 2102465.

Such traditional tattoo images were made out of shark teeth and
try to identified the social status in their owner.
Yet another sales avenue is e - Bay, a shopping site where one can sell your designs.
It's amazing sometimes, but something that is apparently chin-up in a web advertising are the identical cookie-cutter websites each of the time. They are typically seen with those who've a
Celtic heritage, and some without any Celtic heritage make them as well.
Tattoos undoubtedly are a real method of reclaiming a culture that had been almost lost.
