    Reading of the Fallen an opportunity for Community Service

    Reading of the Fallen

    The Whatcom County group of Washington Open Carry are sponsoring an Event on 11 NOV 2012 in Bellingham from Noon to four pm. We are attempting to "normalize" the Open Carry of firearms in our Fair City. This is a link to our efforts. http://forum.opencarry.org/forums/sh...-of-the-Fallen

    There will be a "Reading of the Fallen" on 11 NOV 2012 . We would like to have as many Armed Citizens as possible to participate in, what could be a historic event.
    "Firearms stand next in importance to the Constitution itself. They are the people's liberty teeth (and) keystone... the rifle and the pistol are equally indispensable... more than 99% of them by their silence indicate that they are in safe and sane hands. The very atmosphere of firearms everywhere restrains evil interference .When firearms go, all goes, we need them every hour." -- George Washington

    1,050,000 names? That seems low - especially considering the Civil War itself had somewhere arounf 750,000 in-uniform deaths.

    But regardless - I'm going to look into whether or not one is scheduled here, or needs to be set up.

    stay safe.

    Relax. Breathe - both directions.

    And if it was not about my use of the word "here" - no, I am not yet among the fallen. At least not that group - we will not discuss angels or morals that may not be upright.

    stay safe.

    I believe the reading is state specific. So our list will concentrate on fallen Washington state soldiers.
