The Bracelet Is A Token Of What She Means To Me

I ordered this bracelet in honor of my fiancée. We went all through high school together. We dated steady all through school. I graduated in 1969, and she in 1970. After one year of college, I had to go into the military due to the draft lottery was initiated. Vietnam scared her so very much and she thought I would never return. It just tore us apart. I never forgot about her. After I got back into the states, I could not find her. Her parents had moved as well. We had been neighbors as well.

After 34 years, I found her!!! was how we got together. I had been checking there for over 8 years before she showed up on it. I sent her a note and after four days, she called me back. Long story short she never forgot me either. She never had gotten rid of anything I had ever given her, included that diamond engagement ring. I am moving from Illinois to the Kansas City area May 5, 2006 and getting married that day. Miracles do still occur... My feet have not touched the ground since reuniting with her. This bracelet is just a token of what she means to me. I thank God for bringing us back together.

Because It Shows That Women Can Do A Man's Job

My brother is a police officer here in Chicago, and I pray for him every day...but then again I pray for those from 9-11. I am also proud of him and every other police officer out there risking their lives every day so we can have a safe neighborhood and country. Sept. 11, 2001 was the worst day America has had for many decades. I want to show my respects for those who risked their lives in New York by wearing my bracelet. I picked P.O. Moira Smith because she was the only female Police Officer from NY that died that day. And being a female my self I have even greater respects for woman because it just goes to show that women can also do a mans job... even if it does mean risking our lives for our country.
