Rio Grande and Valencia County Blue Star Mothers Show Their SupportPosted: March 21, 2014
The Wall That Heals Transported to Ft. Marcy Park in Santa Fe
“Thank you” to all who came out on such a short notice to show your support. What a great experience, although a cold one, we had together. There were 13 of us that braved the bone chilling wind and the freezing temperatures above I-25 on the Algodones Overpass Tuesday to show our support as the Wall That Heals was escorted to Santa Fe. With banners and window flags on our cars, we waved our big American flags for about an hour as it took longer than expected for the semi-truck carrying the Wall and its entourage to reach our location. None of us seemed to mind, though. We proudly waved our flags with frozen fingers and noses hearing lots of support from passing motorists until we finally spotted the flashing lights of the State Police clearing the way for the Wall. It was a touching sight to see it traveling surrounded by American Legion and Patriot Guard Riders.
