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!

Wake up America!  There’s a Black man in the White House.  He’s got the same job as the white guy and is due his respect for the office he holds.  I didn’t like Bush, but when I spoke of him, he was Mr. President.  Barack Obama is President Obama or Mr. President.  He’s not Barack or Obama. You show respect for the position, office, the anthem or the Pledge of Allegiance.

Jury Duty

I had jury duty on the biggest day in history, January 20, 2009!  I wanted to see Barack Obama take the Oath of Office for President of the United States. 

After getting a lecture on why doing your civic duty was important, we did get to see the historical event on C-Span.  Well we should have been inspired to be Americans.  Some “Americans” just don’t think that way.  Only half the room the stood for the national anthem. In forgien countries you could almost get beaten if not shot for not showing respect.  They sentence people to death for tainted milk in China.  Here in these United States we are free to not respect the national anthem even in a government building ~ Freedom!
