Thanks for sharing that uplifting piece of news! I agree with the rest of you that it is great to see someone standing up for what they believe, despite the counter-cultural stance.

Timothy - hmmm...I, too, am worried when the government tries to step in and silence people. That's no longer a democracy in my eyes. And you're right - even if we don't agree with someone's statements, they shouldn't be silenced. If nothing else, because the next one to be silenced could be someone we may agree with!

I saw that. Go Ravens!

Interestingly enough, he is on the same team as Brendon Ayanbadejo, the Ravens player who was vocal in his support of the redefinition of marriage, AKA same sex marriage or gay marriage. A Maryland delegate to the House of Delegates in Annapolis actually called Ravens' Owner Steve Bisciotti and asked him to stop Ayanbadejo from voicing his opinion on the subject. Now, I don't agree with Ayanbadejo, but I was saddened that a member of the government was asking an employer to take action against a citizen for exercising his First Amendment Right of Free Speech and Petitioning the Government.

Hopefully Delegate Burns won't try to silence Birk.

Has anyone seen this mentioned on the MSM? Probably only Fox ran with it.Too bad. It's just not their cup of tea.

Attitude is everything, pick a good one!

Nice! It's good to see a man act like a real man. The media doesn't often showcase examples of this.

All in good time...and with the help of my friends.

Today: I pray to shift the way I approach life, to move deliberately and consciously, to become attentive.

SparkPeople editor Stepfanie says:
At some point you realize that life is just that: life. Ups, downs, good, bad, it's all just life. It all balances out, and letting every little bump in the road sideline you is no way to live.
