Go Where You Wanna Go!

Thursday, June 02, 2011

You have brains in your head.
You have feet in your shoes.
You can steer yourself in any direction you choose.
You're on your own.
And you know what you know.
You are the guy who'll decide where to go.
~Dr. Seuss

Memorial Day - 2011

Monday, May 30, 2011

As we stop to honor those who have made the ultimate sacrifice so that we might be free, let us also remember those who have placed themselves in harms way and are currently defending our freedom.

Yesterday was the 100th anniversary of the Indianapolis 500 but it wasn't the 100th race because the race was suspended during World War II. Professional Baseball stopped playing during World War II, giving rise to "A League of Their Own", the All American Girls Professional Baseball league. During World War II, everyone at home was affected by the war, with rationing of war supplies and foodstuffs and women taking jobs formerly held by the men who were fighting (ie: Rosie the Riveter)

Beginning in Viet Nam and continuing through Somalia, Granada, Gulf War I and the Current Conflict, there is a war going on but at home life goes on.

For just a few minutes this afternoon, or just for a minute, stop and say a word for our fallen service-people and those currently defending our freedom.

  


God Bless the American Serviceman

Sunday, May 29, 2011

Any dangerous spot is tenable if brave men are willing to make it so.
- John Fitzgerald Kennedy

Two men have been wiling to give their life for you, Jesus Christ and the American soldier. One die for your soul, the other for your freedom.

Before the start of the Indianapolis 500 and the Coca Cola World 600, there is amoment of silence in remembrance of those who made the ultimate sacrifice so that we could enjoy our freedom and the holiday. Never, never forget!

    Yea, bless the men and women of the U.S. military because without them we would not be here this day, I believe.

    Bless you, sir. My father served in the Pacific during World War II. While he told me many stories, there was a lot he did not want to talk about. All I know is that Memorial Day was not just for BBQ's and picnics. We always started the day very respectfully and paid homage to those friends and fellow servicemen lost during the conflict and in the time since.

Now that my father has passed on to his just reward, I will continue the tradition. Thank you for the reminder of what this holiday really means. God bless.
