American Widow Project

honest to goodnessI have comitted myself to looking for positive and honest things to talk about on Footsteps to balance a lot of the negative rants I go on.  Because, although I feel a need to write what I’m concerned about, the real Emily Grace isn’t as negative as she comes across in this blog.  There is a lot of heartache going on in our world, but it still is a wonderful place.  I have found something amazing to prove it. 

It is called the American Widow Project, and I’ll let this video explain what it is:

This inspires me.  This says that there are still amazing people–amazing women, in this case–who have somehow found a way to use their own tragedy and heartbreak to help others.  The American Widow Project put together the documentary that Bob Woodruff talked about in the news clip.  What did they do with it?  As their website explains…

The Film– The 75 minute the documentary gives a candid look into the stories, struggles and perseverance of 6 military widows. Everything is covered from meeting the love of their life to the knock on the door, life as a single parent, and decorating a headstone. The film is being distributed FREE of charge to all military widows and widowers as a key to the healing process.

Here is the trailer for their documentary:

May we all learn from these amazing women.
Blessings,
Emily Grace
