Our local ABC TV affiliate, WHSV TV 3, had this disturbing news today
Controversial Group To Protest Local Soldier's Memorial
This is the exact reason that my husband Tony and I joined the Patriot Guard Riders several years ago.
The Patriot Guard Riders came about precisely Because of the Westboro Baptist 'church' Hate group.
An excerpt from the Patriot Guard Riders Mission Statement:
Our main mission is to attend the funeral services of fallen American heroes as invited guests of the family. Each mission we undertake has two basic objectives:
Show our sincere respect for our fallen heroes, their families, and their communities.
Shield the mourning family and their friends from interruptions created by any protestor or group of protestors.
We accomplish the latter through strictly legal and non-violent means.

and, for a documentary about them
While I pray, for the sake of Brian Anderson's family, that the Westboro Hate Group doesn't show up tomorrow? I also know that the Patriot Guard Riders and the local Broadway community will be standing to shield the family from Westboro's message of hatred and venom, if they do show up.
