Posting a Diary Entry

Daily Kos welcomes blog articles from readers, known as diaries. The Intro section to a diary should be about three paragraphs long, and is required. The body section is optional, as is the poll, which can have 1 to 15 choices. Descriptive tags are also required to help others find your diary by subject; please don't use "cute" tags.

When you're ready, scroll down below the tags and click Save & Preview. You can edit your diary after it's published by clicking Edit Diary. Polls cannot be edited once they are published.

If this is your first time creating a Diary since the Ajax upgrade, before you enter any text below, please press Ctrl-F5 and then hold down the Shift Key and press your browser's Reload button to refresh its cache with the new script files.

ATTENTION: READ THE RULES.

  1. One diary daily maximum.
  2. Substantive diaries only. If you don't have at least three solid, original paragraphs, you should probably post a comment in an Open Thread.
  3. No repetitive diaries. Take a moment to ensure your topic hasn't been blogged (you can search for Stories and Diaries that already cover this topic), though fresh original analysis is always welcome.
  4. Use the "Body" textbox if your diary entry is longer than three paragraphs.
  5. Any images in your posts must be hosted by an approved image hosting service (one of: imageshack.us, photobucket.com, flickr.com, smugmug.com, allyoucanupload.com, picturetrail.com, mac.com, webshots.com, editgrid.com).
  6. Copying and pasting entire copyrighted works is prohibited. If you do quote something, keep it brief, always provide a link to the original source, and use the <blockquote> tags to clearly identify the quoted material. Violating this rule is grounds for immediate banning.
  7. Be civil. Do not "call out" other users by name in diary titles. Do not use profanity in diary titles. Don't write diaries whose main purpose is to deliberately inflame.

Please begin with an informative title:

Once upon a time, the war in Iraq and the safety of our troops was on the forefront of everyone's minds. I can't believe it's been three years since my wife and I created this Dove car magnet to send a message of peace and the desire to bring our troops safely home.

Intro

You must enter an Intro for your Diary Entry between 300 and 1150 characters long (that's approximately 50-175 words without any html or formatting markup).

Peace Dove

Hundreds of people put the doves on their cars and we were able to send much of the proceeds to charities supporting Iraq veterans and their families.

Due to financial difficulties, I had to close the website where you could order the doves. Currently I still have about 500 magnets and they aren't doing the troops any good from my garage.

If these magnets can be of any use to you or your peace organization, please contact me and I will donate the remaining Peace Doves to you (all I ask is that you pay the shipping cost which is $4.80 priority mail for requests of 10 to 40 magnets).

Drop me an email if you are interested in receiving anywhere from 10-500 doves. MikeyIwrites@gmail.com

And here's to the day of celebration (hopefully soon) when this message if no longer necessary.
