– This is an open letter to those heroes who recently gave their lives in Benghazi, Libya:


To:  Chris Stevens, the U.S. Ambassador to Libya, Tyrone Woods and Glen Doherty, former Navy SEAL commandos working as diplomatic security officers and Sean Smith, a computer expert;

You are True Men of Honor and Gentlemen of the Highest Order.  True American Heroes… in every sense of the term.

It seems so shallow… to merely say “thank you” for giving your lives… in the defense of our beloved republic and all of us, whom reside within.

So, to each of you I say… “You are the Patron Saints of Freedom.  You stood guard at the Gates of Liberty.  You paid the ultimate price, to ensure our peace and tranquility.  It is a result of your courage and bravery… that affords us all the ability… to lay our heads on our pillows at night… close our eyes… and, peacefully slip off to sleep beneath the blanket of security you provide… and, awake in the morning… to the breath of freedom.”

Blessed are you all, my brothers… for you truly are your brother’s keeper!

We love you all… and, we will see you soon.


To:  The Parents, Children and Siblings of  Sean, Glen, Tyrone and Chris;

Thank you for giving birth to and raising such fine young gentlemen of honor.  Your values of upbringing are so clearly visible and evident in their self-lessness of actions.  Thank you for giving us your sons.

Now, know this with all of your hearts… Your sons now stand guard at the right hand of Our Lord Thy God, by day… and, stand guard at the Gates of Heaven, by night.  No enemy shall ever prosper nor gain entry within… and, they proudly await your arrival.  To you they proclaim.. “Rejoice, for the next meeting will be permanant… without end.”


To:  Our Lord Thy God;

Thank you for creating such beautiful souls and Thank you for blessing us with their presence.  Keep guard over their families here on earth and protect them beneath the canopy of your never-ending love.  Amen.
