Their life's blood. For me to carry across the finish line. So I will walk on 07/20/2013. If they can lay down their lives for me then I can walk for them.

And if I don't make the finish line, then hopefully my children or grandchildren will cross the finish line with me in heart and blood. No I did not ask, But I am glad that it was given!!!!!!
