Your Memorial Day Photos

Posted by Ron Devito on May 31, 2011

Thank you so much for helping us celebrate America and our vets by sending us photos of your family or community celebrating Memorial Day weekend. We’ve posted below a handful of the many great photos sent to us.

John B went up a mountain to show his support: “Mount POW/MIA is a mountain that was dedicated in November of 1999 to any military personnel that have ever been determined as a Prisoner of War or been Missing In Action. This mountain can easily be seen from the Matanuska-Susitna Veterans Memorial…At the summit there is a POW/MIA flag, register, and plaque dedicated to James Wesley Widdis, Jr. Northwest of the summit, about 100 feet, if there is little or no snow, is a picnic table for picnicking pleasure.”

 

Andrew S: “My dog Guinness at Williamsburg, VA. He is ready to fight for our freedom.”

Bob K: “This pictures is from our Memorial Day services at the town park in Sardinia, NY.”

Carole A: “Attached photo is from Florida National Cemetery at Bushnell, Florida, Memorial Day Service.”

 

Catherine B: “Taken at our town’s Memorial day parade in Hudson, New Hampshire. Many of the young people of our very small community showed up and marched proudly with this piece of life changing history. These kids are Jr. ROTC, who proudly participate in many community events.”

David C at Rolling Thunder in Washington, DC.

Picture of Don B’s son Jeremy, who is currently serving in Iraq. Don says of this photo: “Freedom: Brought to you Courtesy of Brave Americans, Past, Present and Future, … GOD Willing.”

Elisha C used Memorial Day weekend to reflect on her service to our country: “My name is Elisha and I currently live in Omaha, NE. The photo I am sending is one I took today of my Air Force uniform hanging on the back of a chair, with a picture of an eagle with a flag hanging on the wall in the background. I have been in the military for almost six years now, and in just a month, I will be separated and no longer wearing this uniform. I am proud to have called myself an Airman in the USAF and am thankful for those who served before me, with me, and those who will serve after me.”

From Fred and Lois S

Karen A: “Snapshot of my littlest ones having fun with sparklers in their grandparents’ garden this Memorial Day. My son has been especially interested in the flag after we attended a minor league ball game this past week. Taking his ball cap off, watching the flag, and hearing the words to the Star-Spangled Banner opened the door to a great discussion about how our country remains free today.”

Kathleen O: “These photos were taken in Tradition, St. Lucie County, Florida. The display is called “Take Time to Honor”. Volunteers put up Crosses and Stars of David for every man and woman who gave their lives in service to the United States of America so that we would remain free.”

Lori H: “My daugther after greeting the soldiers at DFW airport.”

Monica C: “This is how our son Jaime has chosen to serve Memorial Day…….fighting for our freedom in Afghanistan. So very proud of him!”

Robert S: “From New Orleans at the NASA base. Working hard on this Memorial Day! Proud to be an American.”

Yvonne J: “Memorial Day Service, Quantico National Cemetery, Quantico, Virginia.”

It’s Impossible to Chase Someone Who Isn’t Running

Posted by Adrienne Ross on May 31, 2011

By Adrienne Ross – http://www.motivationtruth.com

“It’s physically impossible to chase someone who isn’t running.” This is my standard response to a student who comes barreling down the school hallway because so-and-so is chasing him. Today, I issued that same comment to a wildly running seventh grader, and I got the same look I always get, the lightbulb slowly coming on.

I had already intended to address the media’s obsession with Governor Palin’s “One Nation” bus tour, but no sooner had those words to the student come out of my mouth when a lightbulb came on for me.

It’s impossible to chase someone who isn’t running. I’ve uttered those words in reprimand to students for years. Have I been wrong all along? Well, if I believe the political talking heads, indeed I have. If I listen to the Bill O’Reillys, the Dick Morrises, the Charles Krauthammers of the world, Governor Palin isn’t running for President, for she doesn’t have what it takes. I reject that perspective, of course, as common sense Americans do. However, let’s just say, for the sake of argument, that they are correct and she’s not going to run. Why, then, is she being chased? Nay, why is the media literally stalking her as she and her family are enjoying the historical sites of this great country? They’re checking into hotels she’s staying at, they’re engaging in what are essentially high speed chases down the highways, and they’re lurking overhead in helicopters.

Governor Palin has repeatedly said this tour is not a campaign tour. She’s proving wrong those who claim that she’s simply looking for attention; she hasn’t even released her travel schedule. She’s not setting up a microphone and making prepared speeches to a plethora of gatherers. She’s simply taking in the richness of America’s history, and the media can’t get enough. So here’s a private citizen who’s on a family vacation, one might say, and media members are underfoot–and overhead. Yet their narrative is that she’s totally irrelevant, unable to lead this country, and has no intentions to run. Why don’t they go chase the other people then, the ones who are running? Why not stick microphones in their faces, ask them if they’re playing with their heads, and tweet incessantly about their next move?

If I believe some of these so-called experts and these masters of the lamestream media who, according to their own imaginations, know everything about everything, Governor Palin is simply a passing fad, unfit for leadership, and certainly not running for President. It seems after fifteen years of teaching, it might be time for me to find something new to respond when one student is running down the hallway, saying, “He’s chasing me!” My traditional “It’s physically impossible to chase someone who isn’t running” has been flat-out debunked by those who, supposedly, know better than the rest of us.

New Afghanistan Development Dangerous to NATO

Posted by Ron Devito on May 31, 2011

Governor Palin today posted on Facebook:

After learning this afternoon of Afghan President Karzai’s ultimatum to NATO concerning airstrikes, we need to consider how dangerous this new development is. While it’s always devastating to hear about civilians killed in the fight against the Taliban, President Karzai surely knows that no one works harder to eliminate civilian casualties than NATO. His public ultimatum issued today to allies and supposed friends is dangerous. What President Karzai is saying is that if we don’t severely limit our air campaign he will take “unilateral action.” And he further says that if the airstrikes continue we will be seen as an “occupying” power. This is an indirect way of saying that American and NATO forces will be fair game, which is obviously an unacceptable situation that threatens our troops. His comments reflect the reality that there is a growing divide between NATO and the Karzai government. Let us be clear: we are in Afghanistan fighting for the Afghan people and for the security of our country and our allies. If President Karzai continues with these public ultimatums, we must consider our options about the immediate future of U.S. troops in his country. If he actually follows through on his claim that Afghan forces will take “unilateral action” against NATO forces who conduct such air raids to take out terrorists and terrorist positions, that should result in the immediate withdrawal of U.S. forces from Afghanistan and the suspension of U.S. aid. I still firmly support our mission in Afghanistan, but we must have the support of the host government. Our troops’ mission will be compromised and their safety endangered if the Afghan government threatens us.

The Call at Gettysburg

Posted by Ron Devito on May 31, 2011

When I first visited Gettysburg years ago, I was overwhelmed with the sense of sacrifice made to secure our union, but my most recent visit this morning was even more significant as subsequent visits allow reflection on the state of our union today. Striking to me is how ready and willing troops and civilians were in 1863 to lay their lives on the line. Are we as ready and willing to accept the call for sacrifice today in order to keep our union secure?

Hopefully the kids on school field trips whom we met this morning grasped the poignant irony at the site we toured together: that such a beautiful stretch of the Pennsylvania countryside should have been the site of the bloodiest battle in the Civil War. But perhaps it’s fitting that such a sacred place should be so beautiful now in order to commemorate the terrible sacrifices made to bring about, in the words of Lincoln’s famous address, “a new birth of freedom.”

But this “new birth of freedom” wasn’t fully realized by the generation that paid the price for it. Over 100 years after the battle, Martin Luther King, Jr. stood on the steps of the Lincoln Memorial and declared, “Now is the time to make justice a reality for all of God’s children.” It took the struggle for Civil Rights to truly complete what Lincoln called “the unfinished work” for which the heroes of Gettysburg “gave the last full measure of devotion.”

Today, when we speak of “fundamentally restoring all that is good in America”, we remember the debt of gratitude we owe to those who sacrificed to create and preserve our union. From the Civil War to the struggle for Civil Rights, generations of Americans have made great sacrifices necessary to pass on to us this great gift of freedom. It’s our duty to them to preserve it, cherish it, and pass it on to our children, so “that these dead shall not have died in vain…and that government of the people, by the people, for the people, shall not perish from the earth.”

When duty calls, are we willing to answer today? Please remember that freedom isn’t free – the price paid for our liberty has been great.

The reminders of the past costs are seen at Gettysburg. The way forward in protecting our unified body is encapsulated in Lincoln’s 2nd inaugural address: “…with firmness in the right as God gives us to see the right, let us strive on to finish the work we are in, to bind up the nation’s wounds.”

Media Will Have To Read 26,500 Palin Emails-An Awesome Penance And Sarah’s Best Laugh Yet

Posted by M.Joseph Sheppard At Palin4President2016 on May 31, 2011

The office of the Governor of Alaska has been told they must release the approximately 26,500 emails that originated from then Governor Palin’s office during her tenure.


This will be the ultimate-too date-penance for the lamestream media who will be called from sitting  in park fields waiting for her, on the off chance she shows up and talks to them, as they don’t have her current tour schedule.


One almost, well almost that is, feels sorry for the poor hacks who will have to read through such titbits as “it is really cold in Anchorage today” or “Todd, please pick up some milk on the way home” as well as, to outsiders, totally indecipherable messages about local Alaskan politics which have absolutely no bearing on current matters.


However, sift they must in their endless quest to find something, anything, to potentially embarrass Palin-which they won’t as whatever controversies they might dig up-should there be any-will be must ancient history. 


Surely too the public has had enough of the Palin PDS muckraking efforts and will disregard any “scandals”.This has been proven by the two latest anti-Palin books being complete flops no matter how hard the media tried to promote the “insiders tell-all”.


Palin must be chortling as she contemplates the scribblers pouring over her every word in 26,500 emails-actually I can’t think of a better penance.
