Pray. And if you feel so led, I have a sad, sorry suggestion.
Find a reporter of the largest local paper
And tell your tale of woe. Tie it to how
We fail to honor our military today, and
Discuss how in the future, their graves will
Be as tattered as these unless we honor them.

Discuss citizenship and what it means to be
An American. Tell the reporter that when
Citizens act this way, it is no wonder our
President fails to comprehend that we are
STILL a Christian nation. BE a bit
Inflammatory if you have to to get attention
Which will lead to action.

Because it works.

Although it may be law there is no guarantee that the Township trustee's
office will be of much help. When my wife and I visited the Murray-Welbaum
cemetery in Madison Township Montgomery County Ohio. We found that the
tombstones where laying on the ground and broken. Apparently years ago the
owners had the cemetery bulldozed so it would be more attractive for sale.
We and Gary Welbaum wrote numerous letters to Township and County offices
asking for assistance to attempt a restoration to no avail. I even offered
to buy the acreage of the cemetery. Even the fact that two Revolutionary
Soldiers are buried there did not seem to motivate any action. If any one
has suggestions about our frustration please let us know.
