Happy Memorial Day to America and our troops…..

I was reading an article somewhere the other day, or listening to either Rush or Sean, on the radio and I heard something that I hadn’t thought of before. It was mentioned, that too many Americans think of Memorial day as the unofficial start of the summer season, instead of a day to honor our troops, both present and past, both fallen and still standing. These men and women who served this nation honorably are being taken for granted by our government, and their honor has been turned into something else. They’re honor and service has been turned into something that is NOT honorable and NOT desireable for anyone.

The media in this country is a sad excuse for reporting the truth, because they will NOT do what they are supposed to do, if it doesn’t fit they’re agenda. And they’re agenda right now is to force the rest of us to love their messiah Barack Obama as the first black president of the United States, and according to them, and the left in this country, if you oppose the man, then you are nothing more than a traitor and needs to be shut up. Well, that is very untrue, and the ones that are wrong, are the left in this country.

What we need from our government is the security to keep this nation safe from all enemies, and to close our borders so that our enemies cannot come in, and to do what is needed to keep the citizens of this nation prosperous. NONE OF THESE THINGS are being done by our representatives now. It seems that none of them in Washington D.C., are there to keep America safe and to follow the Constitution. And, my friends, because of this the nation is at peril. And the longer we keep the nation in peril like this, the more of a chance of losing our freedoms, our nation and our Constitution, we will have.
America is a great nation and deserves the sacrifice to keep her and her citizens safe from any and all enemies. And now we have a few, even though Barack Obama and the left in our government do not want to admit to that. Because of this, our enemies are out there, laughing at us because they perceive us as weak and vulnerable to anything that they would wish to push in our direction. The sooner that Obama and our government realizes this, the sooner we can get back to feeling like a sovereign nation again. And for the survival of this nation, that is imperative.

And to the memories of those who served, this is completely wrong. After all, no matter what Obama or the left in this country thinks, our military has given us the might and the strength to become the greatest nation this world has ever seen, and what the left and some of the republicans are doing now, is to destroy what these brave men and woman fought for, and some gave they’re all in order to make sure that the rest of us have those freedoms.



From a blog that I see a lot because of Blog Explosion, called Avert your Eyes, the lady had a wonderful post about Memorial day, that had a poem on it called Freedom is not Free. I had to repost it here because it is something that I think too many people here in the United States, especially our representatives in Washington have forgotten. Her post called The Greatest Casualty is Being Forgotten is great. And so true. The greatest casualty is being forgotten. Here is the poem:

Freedom Is Not Free

I watched the flag pass by one day.
It fluttered in the breeze.
A young Marine saluted it,
And then he stood at ease.
I looked at him in uniform
So young, so tall, so proud,
He’d stand out in a crowd.
I thought how many men like him
had fallen through the years.
How many had died on foreign soil?
How many mothers’ tears?
How many pilots’ planes shot down?
How many died at sea?
How many foxholes were soldiers’ graves?
No, freedom is not free.

I heard the sound of Taps one night,
when everything was still
I listened to the bugler play
And felt a sudden chill.
I wondered just how many times
That Taps had meant “Amen”
When a flag had draped a coffin
Of brother or a friend.
I thought of all the children,
Of mothers and the wives,
Of fathers, sons and husbands
with interrupted lives.

I thought about a graveyard
At the bottom of the sea
Of unmarked graves in Arlington…
No, freedom is not free.

    Oh, what a great poem! It sent a chill down my spine. And the title of the post on Avert Your Eyes, “The Greatest Casualty Is Being Forgotten”, made me want to cry. It’s so true! It makes me feel puny in comparison to those brave young men who gave the fullest measure to secure peace and freedom for an ordinary person like me. While I’m griping about leaking radiators and working 10 hour days I’ll remember all those fine young men in their graves and I’ll feel ashamed for not appreciating the GOOD life their sacrifice gave to me.

    Rest in peace, heroes.

    reply from Robert: That is sort of what it did to me. Was so moving that I had to post it for my Memorial day post. Thanks for the great comment.

    I agree with you. Our country is great because of our military. As BO weakens the military, our country will be weakened.

    I gave a tribute to the members of our family who have served in our military.


    Thanks for your post.

    reply from Robert:Thank you for your comments. It really means a lot when I find out I have new readers. It makes what I am trying to do here more meaningful, and less frustrating.
