|Mother of a Fallen Soldier -
Help Ginny GO BIG!
Click above to see her video.
"As a mother, I am devastated by the loss of my son. As an educator, I know there
are measures we can take to ensure another mother will not needlessly suffer the
"Lt. Robert Bartlett Fletcher, or "Bart" as he was affectionately known, returned
from service in Iraq only to be killed here on American soil. He was 24 years
old, a University of Florida graduate, a proud soldier in the U.S. Army, a great
friend and an inspirational leader. Last fall, on an apartment balcony near Fort
Hood, a distressed soldier shot Bart in the face and then shot himself in the head.
Bart's story is not as unique as we would like to think. The Army reports that
soldier suicides are up 22% from 2007 to 2008. On May 11, 2009, an
American soldier opened fire at a U.S. military base in Baghdad, killing five
and wounding three. Bart's mother, Ginny, wants to end the cycle of violence by
seeing that every military family receives the specialized emotional training
they need to cope with the unique stress of deployment and demands of a
soldier's life. Bart's motto was
'GO BIG or go home,'
and now, so is Ginny's."

Kindermusik Our Time (16 mos.-3 yrs.)
"Tracey Kretzer is what makes
our Kindermusik class so great! Her enthusiasm, skillful presentation,
and positive way of interacting with the kids are why I continue to
enroll my son in new sessions, and why he loves going to class! She is
knowledgeable about teaching and how to be a role model, and
effectively educates us parents as well!"
