Heart of America Quilt needs your help!

The Heart of America quilt is a 1/2 acre quilt in the form of a United States Flag that was started on September 13th 2001. Heart of America Quilt is an international memorial for 9/11. The white stripes are made up of squares of fabric from around the world. These panels are decorated with artwork and logos then adorned with signatures of unity to be presented in honor of those that lost their lives on 9/11 and during the war on terror.

Washington DC will be the location of the five year anniversary showing of the Heart of America Quilt. During this event we are dedicating a song, which I have the honor of singing, to those soldiers who have lost their lives in the war on terror. I am working with the President of Heart of America Quilt and its technical Advisor to create a DVD to be played on large screen while the song is sung. Heart of America Quilt knows what an honor it would be to have these heroes as part of the service and out of our respect to the family and loved ones, we would like to gather photos from those who loved them most to assure that we portray them in the most positive way we can. If you know someone who gave their life for our freedom, or a family member that might like to have their loved one included, please have them contact myself-- ShariHoAQ@hotmail.com or the Heart of America Quilt – admin@heartofamericaquilt.com . We would like to include as many as we can. For more information about the DC event please visit http://www.heartofamericaquilt.com/washingtondc.htm

All my best,

Hey everyone! This isn't a hoax. Shari is a personal friend of mine that is working with the Heart of America Quilt. Shari also sang for the "unveiling" of the Heart of America Quilt last September 11th on the USS Intrepid in NY. If you would copy and paste the message above to an email to help get the word out, that would be great! As I am kinda not good with computers, I'm wondering if someone can go to www.heartofamericaquilt.com and find a pic of the quilt and post it under this thread for me. It's really cool!

Yeah, I've lived in NY for most of my 16 years. Unfortunately, when this was unveiled, I was a wee one with no political interests, so I did not go. It looks amazing, though. Congrats on being selected for the singing!
