Even though I've been here for many years, this is my first diary. My apologies if I'm screwing it up, or if the format is wrong.
What finally compelled me to write? The evil monsters at Westboro Baptist Church are planning on protesting a military funeral in Rancho Cucamonga, California, later this morning (Thursday, August 2nd) morning.
Here is the link to their hateful screed:
I will be honest: I did not know the soldier whom this funeral is for. He was a friend of a friend, but I have no connection to him, or his family, other than the fact that we are humans, and hopefully good people, which is more than I can say for the WBC protestors.
His family and friends are trying to organize a "human wall" to shield him from these hate-mongers. I promised that I would use what influence I have, if any, to help. If anyone is able to help out with this cause on incredibly short notice, it would be genuinely appreciated.
