Kaziah the Goatwoman

Kaziah Hancock is a kind woman... and a goat farmer. But more than goat tending, she has a gift (as you will see in this video courtesy of KARE 11) that has touched more than 200 families who have paid the ultimate sacrifice of losing their loves ones for our nation's freedom. In her words, she has "sent them home."

Hancock calls her paintings "Project Compassion," and can be found at http://www.kaziahthegoatwoman.com/.

On her site, in the gallery section, is a short passage that reads:

It is the soldier, not the reporter, who has given us freedom of the press.

It is the soldier, not the poet, who has given us freedom of
speech.

It is the soldier, not the campus organizer, who has given us the
freedom to demonstrate.

It is the soldier who salutes the flag, who serves beneath the flag,
and whose coffin is draped by the flag, who allows the protester to burn the
flag.

(Father Denis O'Brien of the United States Marine Corp.)
