Something to Ponder
JFK'S Secretary of State, Dean Rusk, was in France in the early 60's when DeGaule decided to pull out of NATO. DeGaule said he wanted all US military out of France as soon as possible.
Rusk responded "does that include those who are buried here?
DeGuale did not respond.
You could have heard a pin drop
When in England , at a fairly large conference, Colin Powell was asked by the Archbishop of Canterbury if our plans for Iraq were just an example of empire building by George Bush.
He answered by saying, 'Over the years, the United States has sent many of its fine young men and women into great peril to fight for freedom beyond our borders. The only amount of land we have ever asked for in return is enough to bury those that did not return.'
You could have heard a pin drop.
There was a conference in France where a number of international engineers were taking part, including French and American. During a break, one of the French engineers came back into the room saying 'Have you heard the latest dumb stunt Bush has done? He has sent an aircraft carrier to Indonesia to help the tsunami victims. What does he intended to do, bomb them?'
A Boeing engineer stood up and replied quietly: 'Our carriers have three hospitals on board that can treat several hundred people; they are nuclear powered and can supply emergency electrical power to shore facilities; they have three cafeterias with the capacity to feed 3,000 people three meals a day, they can produce several thousand gallons of fresh water from sea water each day, and they carry half a dozen helicopters for use in transporting victims and injured to and from their flight deck. We have eleven such ships; how many does France have?'
You could have heard a pin drop.
A U.S. Navy Admiral was attending a naval conference that included Admirals from the U.S. , English, Canadian, Australian and French Navies. At a cocktail reception, he found himself standing with a large group of Officers that included personnel from most of those countries. Everyone was chatting away in English as they sipped their drinks but a French admiral suddenly complained that, whereas Europeans learn many languages, Americans learn only English. He then asked, 'Why is it that we always have to speak English in these conferences rather than speaking French?'
Without hesitating, the American Admiral replied, 'Maybe it's because the Brit's, Canadians, Aussie's and Americans arranged it so you wouldn't have to speak German.'
You could have heard a pin drop.
AND THIS STORY FITS RIGHT IN WITH THE ABOVE...
Robert Whiting, an elderly gentleman of 83, arrived in Paris by plane.. At French Customs, he took a few minutes to locate his passport in his carry on.
"You have been to France before, monsieur?" the customs officer asked sarcastically.
Mr. Whiting admitted that he had been to France previously.
"Then you should know enough to have your passport ready."
The American said, 'The last time I was here, I didn't have to show it."
"Impossible. Americans always have to show your passports on arrival in France !"
The American senior gave the Frenchman a long hard look. Then he quietly explained, ''Well, when I came ashore at Omaha Beach on D-Day in 1944 to help liberate this country, I couldn't find a single Frenchmen to show a passport to."
You could have heard a pin drop.
If you are proud to be an American, pass this on! If not, delete it.
I am proud to be of this land, AMERICA
As we express our gratitude, we must never forget that the highest appreciation is not to utter words, but to live by them.

Life is very important and Living a healthy one or as close to it is also. As well as those who pass through the portal of our hearts. Some stay and some go..
We only have one, so many of us have gotten another chance to get it right. That is truly a Blessing from God.
I think that is why so many of us have joined SP. We want to be the best we can no matter what it takes.
When you are blessed with so much Inspiration, Motivation and Support, you eyes get brighter and you heart gets a lift and you finally know...."I AM NOT ALONE"
There is others who know my story and live it or lived it. FINALLY SOMEBODY HAS WALKED IN THE SAME SHOES.
Somebody who truly understands what hurts and the pain of feeling like an outsider..
So I received this email and wanted to share it with all of you.
Little did we know that when we joined SP we found an extended family with so much Compassion and Loving hearts. All we had to do is take that step and open ourselves up.
Wishing you all a Happy and Safe Holiday!!!
Many Hugs and good wishes to you all.
Here is the email... "Life is Important"
One day a woman's husband died, and on that clear, cold morning, in
the warmth of their bedroom, the wife was struck with the pain of
learning that sometimes there isn't "anymore."
No more hugs,no more special moments to celebrate together,no more
phone calls just to chat, no more "just one minute."
Sometimes, what we care about the most
gets all used up and goes away, never to return before we can say
good-bye, say "I love you."
So while we have it, it's best we love it, care for it, fix it when
it's broken and heal it when it's sick.
This is true for marriage ...
and old cars, and children with bad report cards, and dogs with bad
hips, family and aging parents and grandparents.
We keep them because they are worth it ......
because we are worth it.
Some things we keep -- like a best friend who moved away or a
sister-in-law after divorce.
There are just some things that make us happy, no matter what.
Life is important. We only have one.
We only have one mom, one dad,
one unique brother or sister or friend.
I received this from someone who thought I was a 'keeper'! Then I sent
it to the people I think of in the same way.
Now it's your turn to send this to all those people who are "keepers"
in your life, including the person who sent it, if you feel that way.
Suppose one morning you never wake up.
Do all your friends know you love them?
I was thinking....I could die today, tomorrow or next week, and I
wondered if I had any wounds needing to be healed, friendships that
needed rekindling or three words needing to be said.
Let every one of your friends and family know you love them.. Even if
you think they don't love you back, you would be amazed at what those
three little words and a smile can do.
And just in case GOD calls me home . . .
Live today to the fullest because tomorrow is not promised.

If 4 out of 5 people SUFFER from diarrhea.....does that mean that one out of five enjoys it?
Why do croutons come in airtight packages? Aren't they just stale bread to begin with?
If people from Poland are called Poles, then why aren't people from Holland called Holes?
If it's true that we are here to help others, then what exactly are the others here for? *~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*
If Fed Ex and UPS were to merge, would they call it Fed UP? ?
What hair color do they put on the driver's licenses of bald men?
I thought about how mothers feed their babies with tiny little spoons and forks, so I wondered what do Chinese mothers use. Toothpicks?
Why do they put pictures of criminals up in the Post Office? What are we supposed to do, write to them? Why don't they just put their pictures on the postage stamps so the mailmen can look for them while they deliver the mail (or better yet, just keep them after they take their picture???)?
Is it true that you never really learn to swear until you learn to drive?
As income tax time approaches, did you ever notice: When you put the two words 'The' and 'IRS' together, it spells
YOU, make it a great day!
Lord, please keep Your arm around my shoulders and Your hand over my mouth. Amen
