Here's Someone to Honor for Strength and Perseverence.

Marine Corps Moms: A tale of two widows

Just amazing story here from Marine Corps Moms.

Kathy Trent, a Jersey Girl whose husband died at the WTC on September 11, 2001. She collected over five million from the Federal Victim Compensation Fund and from family and friends. She's now down to her last half million,

and then there is:
Amanda Ries, whose husband was killed last year in Iraq battling the same forces that were responsible for the death of Trant's husband. <....>Mandy should have been welcoming her husband home. Instead, she set aside her grief to help with the dinner, helping to coordinate a heroes welcome for those who made it back. A few weeks later, she arranged a get-together at a local pizza parlor
Which one do you think deserves our gratefulness and honor?
