This 4th of July, we should all take some time to remember the men and women shaping and protecting our Country… from the Founders and Patriots who formed our Nation Under God, to our Heroes today who have made the ultimate sacrifice, in order to give us the freedom and abundance we enjoy today. God bless them and their families.
God Bless America.
The following is from an e-mail sent to me by a dear friend. Grab a box of Kleenex and watch the video below:
Killed in action the week before, the body of Staff Sergeant First Class John C. Beale was returned to Falcon Field in Peachtree City, Georgia, just south of Atlanta, on June 11, 2009. The Henry County Police Department escorted the procession to the funeral home in McDonough, Georgia. A simple notice in local papers indicated the road route to be taken and the approximate time.
Nowadays one can be led to believe that America no longer respects honor and no longer honors sacrifice outside the military. Be it known that there are many places in this land where people still recognize the courage and impact of total self-sacrifice. Georgia remains one of those graceful places. The link below is a short travelogue of that day’s remarkable and painful journey. But only watch this if you wish to have some of your faith in people restored.

Happy Independence day, Y’all! Have loads of fun…please be safe…and don’t forget what we’re celebrating today. There are folks who want to kill us for it or take it away from us EVERY DAY!
