This site who is dedicated to Charity, Spirituality, and Humanitarian Aid; this site is under attack by HACKERS. It is a sad discovery for me to realise that some people's values are that LOW. Our domaine name: changingthefaceofdeath was stolen from us as well as our email addresses, (we are now using www.angelstaff.org) $ 600.00 are demanded to get our name back!!! That is not all! some of our links have been infected with questionable material. I apologize for the inconvenience, my webmaster and I are working on this unbelievable, despicable and offending attack. A complaint has been filed. In PeacefulService, Nadia McCaffrey

Patrick McCaffrey & son (Nadia's son & grandson) Nadia at Jerrie's bedside

The life of a Gentle Hero, a True Patriot, an Angel of Peace has Ended !!! In Loving Memory of my Son Sergeant Patrick Ryan McCaffrey Senior. Born May 26 1970 at Stanford Hospital, Palo Alto, CA. Patrick was shot multiple times, in an Ambush Tuesday June 22 2004 at 11:45 am, near Balad, Iraq. Patrick inlisted after 9/11 with the 579th Engineer Batallion, from Petaluma. The 579th was part of LSA Anaconda. Patrick lived and died a true Patriot in devotion to his family, his friends, and his Country. I thank everyone for supporting our family in this time of grief. 


"From the moment of Patrick's death, my life has been dedicated to Peace and Justice. I have been speaking against the corruption, the immorality and evil of this war of greed, taking the lifes of so many. I am working to bring our troops and our national guardsmen home.  Working to halt the killing of innocents civilians and children of Iraq. I am working to expose the truth"  Nadia McCaffrey


 
"To announce that there must be no criticism of the president, or that we are to stand by the president right or wrong, is not only unpatriotic and servile, but is morally treasonable to the American public." Theodore Roosevelt "Roosevelt in the Kansas City Star" (149) May 7 1918

The U.S. military prohibits news media from photographing the coffins of dead American soldiers returned from Iraq and Afghanistan. Nadia McCaffrey refused to go along with that policy and invited the press to view her son Patrick’s coffin at the Sacramento International Airport in 2004. She said, “My son left for Iraq with a big smile on his face, and he was waving at us to cheer us up. Now, why should I hide him when he comes home? I’m proud of him. I love him, and I wanted the world to witness this.”

Nadia McCaffrey told Democracy Now! that she joined Cindy Sheehan in Crawford to show her opposition to Bush’s policies. She said, "I had to be here. I had to support Cindy and I had to support the mothers. I came because what she started is very important. I think it’s going to make history. This is the first time when we have some attention."

What is a Hero?           

A man that gives himself at all times without questions

A man that takes the heavy load when no one else can

A man that makes everyone around him feel special and important

A man everyone is proud to have known

A man that loves his family and thinks of them always

A man that run to the aid of a fallen soldier

A man that is loved and respected by all that he meets

A man that is stronger than life itself

A man that no one will ever forget

A True Hero is Sergeant Patrick McCaffrey

We must be the change we wish to see in the world. MK Gandhi.

When the Power of Love overcomes the Love of Power the World will know Peace. Jimi Hendrix. (1942-1970)

Do we have a life Mission?

Is it about Caring, about Compassion?
Or unconditional Love, selfless service...
Are we respecting the rights of the Dying?
What can we accomplish with unconditional Love for one another,
withTolerance...and Joy? Are we forgiving with each other?
Can we answer this questions without hesitation?

Learning with true understanding of others,
letting go of fear, and discovering self-confidence is very important.

Before Birth, Being born, Living a full Life, Dying, and Life After Death.
These stages are very much a part of the same Journey. When we come to understand the real purpose of Living, we can face Death not only without Fear but in Acceptance, Peace and even Serenity. This is what I have come to fully comprehend after I, myself experienced many Close encounters with Death.

Among this encounters are 3 NDE’s, (Near-Death Experiences): first at age 7, then 17 and 54 years old. (My NDEs) Death is not a black hole, the "end of everything”. It is a true Spiritual Experience for which we should prepare ourselves.

For the past seventeen years, I have been a volunteer and I have trained others to become volunteers at the bedside of those who are facing Death. This has given me a true understanding of the real needs of people during this ultimate transformation and transition.

The process is simple and comes from the Heart . Unconditional Love, Compassion and Patience, along with total Understanding of the Process, are the ultimate ingredients of this last journey. Death is often met with fear and confusion yet it is as significant as birth itself.

This is because death is the Celebration of a life lived and by meeting it on your own terms you define the value of all that you have lived and done. Our “Angelstaff” of volunteers is always ready to provide bereavement, support and resources to those who ask for assistance. We are a non-religious, non-denominational (interfaith) Service Organization. We respect each and everyone’s Beliefs regardless of Religion, Culture, Race, Age or Gender.

We respect all Life.
