―     John Milton, Paradise Lost

The night before the burial of her husband 2nd Lt. James Cathey of the United States Marine Corps, killed in Iraq, Katherine Cathey refused to leave the casket, asking to sleep next to his body for the last time. The Marines made a bed for her, tucking in the sheets below the flag. Before she fell asleep, she opened her laptop computer and played songs that reminded her of “Cat” (as he was called), and one of the Marines asked if she wanted them to continue standing watch as she slept.
“I think it would be kind of nice if you kept doing it” she said.
“I think that’s what he would have wanted”…

TMC ask everyone to keep Lt. James Cathey and Katherine Cathey in their prayers…

……that whenever any form of government becomes destructive to these ends, it is
the right of the people to alter or abolish it, and to institute new
government, laying its foundation on such principles, and organizing its powers
in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their safety and
happiness.    -Thomas Jefferson, Third President of the United States of America
