TGIF ~ Remember the Military/Veterans

Regardless of your feelings about the military and/or war, the people in uniform deserve a prayer, positive thought, moment of silence and/or respect. They are in constant situations that can put them in harms way-even at home. Remember government civilians are in the same boat. There was a civilian killed at Ft. Hood along with those soldiers, just like at the Pentagon on 9/11.

Understand there are hateful people in America, and I’m not talking

about the shooter! I cannot repeat the garbage people wrote on Facebook and Twitter….BUT this is America and the people in uniform are fighting to preserve your right to be free and write garbage if you like!

Remember the families-children who don’t have a mother or  father during this coming holiday season. Remember their mental health. Don’t ignore problems. Be thankful it’s not you!


My Daughter Was Raped

My daughter was raped

Classically victims have the drug slipped into their drinks at bars, clubs or parties in order to reduce resistance to sexual advances. Once the individual is incapacitated, she is sexually assaulted. Left in a helpless or unconscious state, she can’t escape, resist or call for help.

Incest in the Family

Click link to read article:

In March 2004 a 58 year old man was charged with killing nine children in the family. The children were his by various females, which is where the story becomes bizarre. According to the, Marcus Wesson is a Seven Day Adventist. The Mercury News stated in the article that Wesson attended Seventh – day Adventist church services over the years.  Information was obtained from officials at the Central California Conference of Seventh-day Adventists.  It seems that only part of the family were formally members of any congregation. It seems Marcus Wesson abused religion by practicing incest, polygamy, physical, mental, sexual abuse and now murder.

A Dog’s Purpose (from a 6-year-old)

Another gem from the email:

Being a veterinarian, I had been  called to examine a ten-year-old Irish Wolfhound named Belker. The dog’s  owners, Ron, his wife Lisa, and their little boy Shane, were all very attached  to Belker, and they were hoping for a miracle.

I examined Belker and  found he was dying of cancer. I told the family we couldn’t do anything for  Belker, and offered to perform the euthanasia procedure for the old dog in  their home.

As we made arrangements, Ron and Lisa told me they thought  it would be good for six-year-old Shane to observe the procedure. They felt as  though Shane might learn something from the experience.

The next day, I  felt the familiar catch in my throat as Belker ‘s family surrounded him. Shane  seemed so calm, petting the old dog for the last time, that I wondered if he  understood what was going on. Within a few minutes, Belker slipped peacefully  away.

The little boy seemed to accept Belker’s transition without any  difficulty or confusion. We sat together for a while after Belker’s Death,  wondering aloud about the sad fact that animal lives are shorter than human  lives. Shane, who had been listening quietly, piped up, ‘I know  why.’

Startled, we all turned to him. What came out of his mouth next  stunned me. I’d never heard a more comforting explanation.

He said,  ‘People are born so that they can learn how to live a good Life — like loving  everybody all the time and being nice, right?’ The Six-year-old continued,  ‘Well, dogs already know how to do that, so they don’t have to stay as  long.’

Live simply.
Love generously.
Care  deeply.
Speak kindly.

Remember, if a dog was the teacher you  would learn things like:
When loved ones come home, always run to greet  them.
Never pass up the opportunity to go for a joyride.
Allow  the experience of fresh air and the wind in your face to be pure  Ecstasy.
Take naps.
Stretch before rising.
Run, romp, and  play daily.
Thrive on attention and let people touch you.
Avoid  biting when a simple growl will do.
On warm days, stop to lie on your  back on the grass.
On hot days, drink lots of water and lie under a  shady tree.
When you’re happy, dance around and wag your entire  body.
Delight in the simple joy of a long walk.
Be loyal.
Never  pretend to be something you’re not.
If what you want lies buried, dig  until you find it.
When someone is having a bad day, be silent, sit  close by, and nuzzle them gently.

4 Year Old Shoots Babysitter

An angry four-year-old shot his babysitter after he accidentally stepped on the child’s foot, US police have said.  That’s so sad.  If you step on someone’s foot by accident, you could get shot.  Worse the shooter could be a 4 year old!  What happened to childhood and playing with TOYS?  Do some parents thinks guns are toys?  The 4 year old knew how to shot.  Who taught him?  Can he even spell gun?!!
