Confront Controversy

Tuesday, June 01, 2010

All problems become smaller if you don't dodge them, but confront them. Touch a thistle timidly, and it pricks you; grasp it boldly and its spines crumble.

- William S. Halsey, WWII U.S. Admiral

    Thanks for the thoughts on fear. We all have fear going on in our lives.
Confronting is not always easy, but we must do it.

    Yes, facing your fears is the only way to overcome them. Avoidance just makes them appear stronger.

Great quote, thanks!

Thank a Vet and God Bless the USA!

Monday, May 31, 2010

Memorial Day, formerly known as Decoration Day, originated in 1865 as a way to honor fallen Civil War soldiers. It was first observed in 1866 and every year thereafter. Each year the headstones at Arlington National Cemetary each receive an American Flag. Our thoughts and prayers go to all families grieving a fallen soldier this Memorial Day weekend.


And I am proud to be an American,
where at least I know I'm free.
And I won't forget the men who died,
who gave that right to me.

Lee Greenwood

    This is a wise way to enjoy our journey. Stop and smell the roses is another way to look at it too. All too often we strive for the finish line, missing out on all the blessings along the way!
