Preamble Then and Now…

We the people of the United States, in order to form a more perfect union, establish justice, insure domestic tranquility, provide for the common defense, promote the general welfare, and secure the blessings of liberty to ourselves and our posterity, do ordain and establish this Constitution for the United States of America.

That was then…This is NOW:

We the people of the former United States, have torn apart our once perfect union, have no justice, encourage domestic turmoil, failed to provide a common defense, forgotten what general welfare is (and it includes EDUCATION), and allowed the blessings of our liberty to be misused to the point where almost no prosperity remains. 

We have torn apart our once perfect union by allowing ourselves to become bigoted against one another for one excuse or another. If it is not due to race, it is due to regional bias, religion, sexual preference (or the fact that some will never agree to mind their own business from both sides of any issue). Americans, let people be who they are, marry who they want and address the coming problem…Here it is…

We have failed to establish justice because we have allowed those who were considered to be on the lunatic fringe when we were children to come into positions of power.  In doing so we have seen not only THIS administration but many in law enforcement personnel ignore the 4th Amendment.

Defense? The people have no defense.  I will support no candidate who does not pledge to pull our troops from the Middle East.

The general welfare…NO I AM NOT talking about social security here or any aid to the elderly disabled. THESE are the ones who truly need it…Yes, some people have been on welfare too long.  Part of “welfare” includes educating the youth. When teachers are forced to be social engineers, children will not get educated. It is time to change this.  It is not the job of the educator to mold my child into a government mouthpiece.  Period.  We must look to other models of education (such as Belgium’s) and remove the government (and especially the NEA) from making decisions about the curriculum for each state, as well as making decisions on educational policies for each state. There is no need for “national certification” because this is a power that should remain with the states.

To try to nationalize the curriculum is the same is trying to eradicate each state’s individual culture under the guise of expanding education and making it equal for all, when no matter how much they put into place, it never can be so. There are many here who know what it means to  secure the blessings of liberty to ourselves and our posterity. However the government does not want a populace that knows what this means.  Hasn’t anyone else figured this out yet?

Oh I forgot…They aren’t taught the meaning of those precious words in the Constitution any longer. THAT would encourage critical thinking.  My god we have so squandered this great blessing of ours so much that nobody can see what is happening? It is time for citizens to take back the country. Run for local offices and move up from there. It is also time for the PEOPLE to lay differences aside.  Our freedom remaining in tact is what is important right now. PERIOD!

Santa Anna’s army was defeated at the Battle of San Jacinto in 18 minutes with an army that was tired, worn and determined.

All this country needs is one sweeping election to defeat anyone who is trying to usurp our rights to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness.   We KNOW who they are yet we keep putting them all back in office, on our school boards and on our city councils–not to mention every other city, state or county post known to man.  Hint: BOTH major parties are loaded with these people.

This lady has been bent but she is not fully broken yet. We can still work together to keep this country together, but we have to stop letting the government keep us divided. They feed off of that. We have to learn to mind our own business instead of telling our neighbor how to live his/her life and stop telling other countries how to conduct their business–and to further the end of the latter, we shouldn’t be providing monetary aid to any country that abuses others via forced marriages at young ages, mutilation, and denial of basic human rights.  We should also limit humanitarian aid to such countries.  The last thing we should do to further our own end is to ban travel to these areas and close our embassies there. Most countries like this do not want the U.S. or any European country there anyway and if we would all agree to give them what they want by leaving them behind, they would eventually learn who their real enemies are.

Then again, so would we…All we have to do at this point is look in the mirror because we did this to ourselves as a nation.

Lies Involving Voting in TX

Many have seen this meme on Facebook. I can totally assure you that it is full of false information.

Many have seen this meme on Facebook. I can totally assure you that it is full of false information.

First off, if anyone is going to engage in creative writing involving the State of Texas, they need to do their homework to make sure they do not get caught with their pants down.  The Wendy Davis supporters who came up with this just got caught in their first flat-out lie and there will be many more to follow, I’m sure. I am going to give you a link to verify what I am about to tell you so I’ll post that first:

http://votetexas.gov/register-to-vote/need-id

If you look at provisions 6 & 7 NOWHERE is it mentioned that both marriage certificates and divorce documents must be presented in order to vote. The story about the judge is also false. These requirements were posted well before the election and she knew what they meant–if she bothered to read them like a responsible judge who keeps abreast of changes in law would.  It only took her 15 seconds to sign the affidavit–30 if she read the thing.  For her to say she almost “didn’t get to vote” was a fabrication on her part.

The biggest mistake these Democratic workers make when they come here to try to “turn this state blue” is that they truly believe that Texans do not keep up with politics and the news. Well here is the shocker, WE DO!  And contrary to what they report, many of us are quite well-educated and know how to think critically.

That being said I am going to make a prediction based on what I do know about the people of my state. Wendy Davis won’t win for TWO simple facts alone. She is NO Ann Richards and to a lot of us, Ann Richards was the last true old-school Democrat. We don’t care for Progressives.   The other reason she will not win is that the continuing barrage of lies being printed about my state via operatives of the Democratic Party hurt her more than help her. If they knew how to keep the rhetoric honest, she might have a snowball’s chance in hell of at least getting 28% of the vote. Kinky Friedman would have a better shot than she does, I think.

Red State…Blue State…How about “NONSENSE”?

Is there some reason why all Americans, who bleed red the last time I checked, let their politicians guide their every thought as of late? I’ve heard people in red states bash blue ones and vice-versa and have started blocking all of them when they do it on Facebook.   It is rubbish. It is another form of bigotry that has been labelled as regional bias. Why can’t people agree to disagree and let people live as they want to? I’ve heard one side say they want religion outlawed. That is stupidity. Even if it is outlawed people will practice their faith regardless and they will teach it to their children so you can scrap that idea now.

The other says they don’t want to allow same-sex marriage.  Then don’t do it.  If you don’t want an abortion–don’t have one. For those in the blue states who bitch about those who own guns…If you don’t want a gun, don’t buy one.  We as a nation have allowed ourselves to become somewhat “bullying” of  others who live in states below the 36th parallel. Well get over that garbage. We are all Americans. Again WE ALL BLEED RED.  We have enough enemies outside of this country that the last thing we need to do is to allow this country to implode from within but the real difference lies in who reads what laws are passed and who doesn’t as well as who is willing to give up some freedom just to have their medical bills paid or whatever.

I for one am NOT willing to give up the rights granted by the Constitution and I find it appalling that our military would not be able to keep bullets in their weapons in this country while the police in many areas are being given small arsenals.  Perhaps the government doesn’t want our soldiers to uphold and defend the Constitution of the United states and protect a bigots right to be a stupid ass bigot.  I’m sure this makes the Westboro Baptist Church very happy any way–not to mention some extremists in other countries.

I will also be the first to point out that voting for someone or against someone based on race, gender, etc…Is still based on the “–ism” words. Think about it.  Read what they stand for and if it is not something you would want your children and grandchildren to live under, either change your latitude or fire  your politicians in the elections.  GET OUT AND VOTE!

Other than that, leave each other alone. The political climate created by the politicians started all this crap and the anger SHOULD be directed at them. We are merely caught in the middle.

And while you are at it, this is something you MAY want to take into consideration being that it seems to predict what is going on…Yes, it’s George Carlin, it is funny and yes there is some bad language in it. However, he was right and Americans didn’t want to see it because they all live in their own little bubble.  We need to  stop this left vs. right crap and actually READ the laws put into place.  We certainly do not need to let this bias from some make this nation escalate into chaos. If they don’t want to work with us, then We the People need to VOTE to put a stop to this nonsense.

This Has GOT To STOP! How Can Anyone Do This Crap?!

Usually I can look at something and keep my cool, but when I hear about child pornography rings and animal cruelty–those are two hot button subjects that IMMEDIATELY pull my trigger and set me off!

Please sign this petition:  http://www.thepetitionsite.com/takeaction/863/365/434/?cid=FB_TAF

This is one sick individual who should never see light outside of a jail cell for her many acts of cruelty against defenseless animals and she has the gall to call this shit “art”?!  Hello! What the hell kind of crack was the judge smoking to let this slide being that in TEXAS this shit IS illegal?

People, these are the sick individuals that graduate to SERIAL KILLING!  Read about Charles Eng, Ted Bundy, Ed Gein, Wayne Gacy and countless others. They started with puppies, kittens, and other defenseless animals.  THIS HAS GOT TO STOP in America. We should NEVER, EVER tolerate this under the guise of “art” or any other bullshit they try to use to make their sickening behavior more “justifiable” to the public.

I am not kidding when I stress that people who are this sick are in the same league as child pornographers.  NONE of them should ever be out among society.  Neither we, our children, our grandchildren,  and/or our pets are safe with sick people like this on the loose!

I have an immense love for animals.  I’ve had dogs, cats, gerbils, hamsters and such from the time I was a kid. I even once had a white mouse named “Brutus”.  I cannot even bring myself to apologize for the heated anger or vernacular in this post because I am so worked up right now.. Let’s get together with others who can help us stop this crap dead in its tracks, please! Thank you.

Okay…It Just Got Nasty in America…REALLY NASTY.

WARNING: THIS IS A RANT AND I AM RAISING HELL TOWARD THE END OF THIS POST AGAINST THOSE WHO HATE ANY STATE BELOW THE  36TH  PARALLEL. THERE IS SOME VERNACULAR IN HERE…NOT REAL BAD BUT ENOUGH FOR ME TO WARN YOU IN ADVANCE.

Here is my take on what I see going on in this country and since I’m out here, and the politicians are up on their mental Mt. Olympus reading, “Profiles in Courage” which may or may not have been written by JFK, here is what I hear and see going on. Most of America is fed up of both parties representing their own egos (along with other interests) and not the people of this country.

These employees, whose paychecks are signed by the money they rob from us and the blood of our sons and daughters, continue to vote or pass what they THINK is best for America despite what America wants. This goes beyond doing what is “right” or “wrong”. In the mind of America, Washington D.C. is failing dismally at doing it’s job. They know they are paid to represent THE PEOPLE…Not their special interests…Not the bankers…Not Soros…Not the UN…

They are paid to represent the people of the United States of America and no matter which senator is in what party, if he/she is NOT doing THAT, he/she should be sent a resounding message by voting for a different candidate–and I still say the Libertarians and other 3rd parties are going to have a field day at election time over this.

I have dealt with one former FB friend in particular who calls everyone who doesn’t swallow the Dem Party platform hook-line-and sinker a “right-winger”.   She wants her agenda and only her agenda to be law.   The reality is, both parties are the problem in this country.

Americans are a lot more concerned with the money going out of their paychecks than they are with who marries who OR who gets an abortion. These are facts. This is what people out here are saying and it’s not just in “Red States” as she tries to allege. It’s everywhere.

I’m going to address something else that is going to help decide the next election.  Regional bias.  This intense hatred of any and all states that are considered to be “RED” by the media and the “Blue States”  is generally any state below the 36th parallel.  It is time for the media and the states above it to get it through their collective heads that the Civil War has been over for a very long time.  These divides have nothing to do with race or that war.  They have everything  to do with ideology.

Most governing bodies have learned that if you tamper with the average working person’s paycheck and they have the ability to do so, they will vote you out in the next election. Period.  This isn’t about gay marriage–which most aren’t too concerned with anymore. Let people marry who they want and mind your own business on that issue.  Now that this has been dealt with both major parties need to shut up and drive on. It’s about the economy.

Universal Health care is not a bad idea. What is disputed is how it was implemented with THIS legislation as opposed to how other countries such as Spain and Belgium implemented theirs.  Even European countries and Canada said this bill was a travesty, and they should know. They have had socialized medicine for years. I guess people who blindly follow their politicians they worship like sheep didn’t realize that even some of the authors of it are saying it is a train-wreck now because it will kill jobs. That is ONE thing I do agree with the right-wing on–the fact that jobs are being lost and hours cut to part-time over it.

There are those in the Democratic Party who are bigoted against any person living in a Red State. That is what I have encountered here.  That type of hatred and bigotry is what is turning people to third parties. The people are do this are no different than the “haters” they condemn. It is regional bias and it is as evil as racism and misogyny.  This is why Red States don’t tend to listen to what Blue States have to say at all, and this is a fact.  I also think that the hatred for Blue states from the Red ones is no different.  It is also turning people to any candidate that will support putting money back into American paychecks–even if it means repealing the ACA in a few years.  No Democrat will win any hearts and minds by tolerating this type of bias among their own members and neither will the GOP.  They need to police themselves a bit.

If they want to keep Universal Health Care, the government is going to have to look at Spain and Belgium and try to implement something similar in time because the American people as a whole do NOT like parting with rent money, grocery money, gas money and other things that are needed. This isn’t about “the rich paying their fair share” either.

If you really want to know what angers me at both parties right now, it is that they think they are above the law and continually exempt themselves from it. It is time for THIS:

“Congress shall make no law that applies to the citizens of the United States that does not apply equally to the Senators and/or Representatives; and, Congress shall make no law that applies to the Senators and/or Representatives that does not apply equally to the citizens of the United States.”

This would be the 28th Amendment to the Constitution should it be ratified and I will support any candidate that will uphold it.

I only look for support for this to come from the people who are fed up with the status-quo and some Libertarians.

What are the other states going to do if some of the states that are hotly opposed to this particular law implement the right to nullification? Yes, states do have the right to say, “We aren’t going to enforce this.” like it or not.

Now I am going to vent like hell. Buckle up. I am about to get really ugly and nasty here. Here is the reality of the situation in this state and why we don’t trust either party for the most part:

Cost of living should be a factor in deciding subsidies and I can assure you, there are families making $35K a year living in tents around here. I’m paying to live in an RV and had to leave a 3 BR house.  I was paying $495 for the house until my check got hit. I’m paying $600 for the RV and of that, the rent space is $400. This is what is really pissing people off. Elderly people ARE living in storage rooms and this was just another hit to those of us who have to live out here.  My take home pay right now is around $400 a week. $600 rent, $433 car payment, money for gasoline,  $250 for medical expenses even WITH the insurance and my expenses are now outweighing income.

Food banks are keeping busy right now. To save propane, I eat in a soup kitchen. This is reality, but these people are wonderful. They are going through the same thing. Legally, I am considered to be homeless even though I have a paycheck. To others who are affected in this respect, Obamacare is going to be a HUGE issue even though it is the greed from this oil boom out here that is causing the housing problem. This state is in trouble–big time if it doesn’t put in rent controls. The Democrats won’t do it because they are on the board of Realtors . The GOP won’t do it because they own most of the property in question. Now everyone knows why TX is getting mad at BOTH major parties and the problem is spreading to other areas where the new shale bed was discovered.

And then we have to sit and listen to this bullshit about how “Red States are to blame for yada, yada, yada” and it is getting really old to those of us who voted for people like Ann Richards…REALLY old. To those of us who experience that type of bigotry (and we are of several races), it is no different than the hatred exhibited by the WBC, the KKK or anyone else of that ilk. We are not “right-wing”. We are not “left-wing”. We are Texans. We are also Americans. If you want our respect, those who have bashed this state should give it some. We are not Rick Perry.  In fact, a lot of us didn’t vote for him.  Personally, I’d love to resurrect Ann Richards because she took no shit off of the Democratic Party OR the GOP.  Neither did Mark White.  If Mark White would run, I’d vote for him in a heartbeat. By the way haters, he is a Democrat…

Hate me all you like…Hate my state…Say all the bad things about the people here that you want, but for all the arrows you shoot in our direction and/or at any other southern state, “red state” or whatever else you label them by, it will only turn on you later. If you hate this state that much, vote to kick it out of the union.  We have our own infrastructure and power grid.  You’d be doing us a favor, being that 85% of the military comes from here and would probably move back here to help rebuild us as an independent nation if you really don’t want us in the union.   Oh I forgot…You need the oil from the shale that put hard-working Americans like yours truly into an RV park…Happy now?  Yeah, that big oil money you haters keep bitching about is what helps get tax money to cover all the programs you so love keeping around.  You can’t have it both ways. Either you want us to be in the union, or you don’t. If you don’t, then write to your congressman/woman to kick us out.  By the way, if you do that, you don’t have to bitch about that faction that wants to secede anymore too.  Oh, I forgot! You don’t want to have nothing to bitch about! It’s what keeps you haters going!

There…I’m through bitching.  Happy now?  I have to go anyway.  The smell of that package I just got via my grandson reminds me a lot of the haters’ bullshit I read on Facebook.  Then again, those haters are like used diapers.

Oh by the way, if you DO decide to kick this state out of the union, will it be ejected along with the original lands it came into the union with being that the people of Texas never voted on being annexed in the first place? If you’re not sure about where those lands are, Google it.

Good News…

The biopsy was normal. No cancer.  I still don’t know why I kept hemorrhaging. I’m on medication now–progesterone. I will know after my doctor’s appointment today what is going to be done about this freaking huge cyst on my right ovary.  I still strongly urge anyone who is advised to have the biopsy to simply do it.

I had already discussed with my family what course I would take if cancer was involved. Surgery yes–chemotherapy no.  I know people who died more quickly from the chemotherapy than the disease itself–but it is not the rate toward the demise that made me say no–it was their suffering.  Besides, I prefer to let nature take it’s course.   I feel that radiation therapy is like “fighting fire with fire”–and in the case of this, had it come to fruition, it makes no sense to me.

I told my sons if I’m meant to live I’ll live. If meant to die, then chemo or radiation won’t change the outcome anyway.  That is just my view. Realistically, it isn’t that I have a death wish. I just feel that such invasive and painful treatments would be more of a burden to my family.

Now that I got that out in the open, I will update you when I get finished at the doctor’s office tomorrow. I am looking forward to two days with my grandson soon.  Life is good, no matter what hand I am dealt. I always manage and that is what counts.

 

The New Mob…

Note: Most who know me know that politicians are the last people on Earth I would ever put my trust into. That is where this is coming from…

A mobster walks in to your business. “We can give you protection but you’ll need to pay us a certain fee for this protection.” “I don’t need or want what you have to offer. I can protect myself.”  you tell him. “You might want to reconsider that. Things can happen, yanno?”he says.

“I’ll take my chances.” you say to him.

Within two weeks he comes into your store, holds you at gun point and takes a third of your earnings for that day and tells you, “There is nothing you can do about this. You’ll pay it one way or another and we are coming once a pay period to collect. This is our neighborhood and we OWN the police.”

Then you are left struggling. “How can I pay the bills? The car payment? The vendors?” Your significant other is in tears and says, we should leave this place… What do you do? Leave or try to change it?

Think about this seriously for one moment.  It is your business and family being extorted…YES, EXTORTED. Now let us change-up the scenario a bit…

Let us look at our government officials.  They have taken upon themselves to pass into effect an extortion bill without the consent of the governed. By this I mean the Affordable Care Act.  The only ones who benefit from this are those who cannot or will not pay.  And those of us who obey the law, keep our jobs and DO pay are having to move out of our homes in West Texas. It is the working people like us–LIKE ME who have to live in an RV/Camper that my former boss owns because on what I make I cannot even rent an apartment. I could live in my car if something were to happen, but hopefully it won’t happen anytime soon.

Please don’t go into the supply vs. demand bullshit. There are two to three property management companies in town that handle ALL of the apartments here and they began gouging when they realized the boom was coming and it is happening EVERYWHERE in West Texas.  There are many families with $35K a year coming in that have to live in tents and storage rooms over this crap. Thanks to this, I can’t even save up the money to MOVE elsewhere. We are trapped in this area like slaves.  I actually think it was planned out to be this way too.

No American should have to live like this but this is our government at work in all of its infinite lack of wisdom. It is my opinion that they are trying to make everyone dependent upon it. They are creating the crisis to get us to cave into them. That is the last thing we should be doing. Why? They work for US. WE are not here to serve them and their lemmings and special interests. The two major parties are destroying the country and it is time we change direction totally. I will never vote for a candidate out of either major party again–unless they are Libertarian leaning. They lied to us all and failed us as a people.

And if we really wanted to send a strong message to them as a people, all everyone would have to do is pull together and pass a law that requires all citizens are to receive the same quality of care and help regardless of profession, sex, race, age, income etc with NO EXEMPTIONS–meaning our fearless government leaders (sarcasm intended) would have to be on the same program…  Pass a law like that and it  will over-ride this damned debacle they didn’t read in the first place. In fact, they should be fired and jailed for not reading it, subjecting US to it and EXEMPTING THEMSELVES from it.  NO OTHER COUNTRY does this to its people…

At least with a bill like I gave an example of, they CANNOT be exempt from it.  It would also make void direct IRS access to our bank accounts and leave decisions about medical care between doctor, patient and his/her family and not some idiot not qualified to practice medicine on the other end of a phone line.

When our founders wrote the Constitution, they did not intend to exempt themselves from the laws they passed. They did not set themselves up like a monarchy or oligarchy either. They did not believe in the principle of “diplomatic immunity” either. This country needs to change that as well.  We are the only country that allows this garbage to the best of my knowledge.

Anyway back to my original point. They are supposed to be working for US. Not passing laws over the will of the population and that is exactly what has happened. The only way to change this is to win elections locally first–right down to mayoral races and school board elections and work our way up from there. And I seriously hope that all of them who signed this into law get convicted of running the nation’s largest Ponzi scheme, which is exactly what this sham of a health care law is. By passing it, the government has made itself the new “mob”.

And before anyone starts bitching, I pay my share and always have. I grew up and had to work 2 jobs–sometimes 3 to survive. I should not have to do that again at my age and it really has me pissed off.  THAT is what both major parties have done for me. That is why I have never trusted politicians and never will–especially Dems and Repubs.   Don’t try to tell me the Dems are for the poor and working class either. After what they did to the unions, I know that is bullshit.  Don’t tell me the Repubs care about my values either.  If they did, the Sioux  would have been awarded the land stolen from them over time–when the descendants of the thieves that stole it, who are now on it (and controlling it) die off.

Either way, I am looking at 3rd party candidates for the most part in my state over this crap.

Have WE Gotten to the Point to Where We Can’t Fix This?

Before I begin, I suggest (strongly) that you read this article.  http://www.trueactivist.com/the-real-problem-with-that-rolling-stone-cover/

it speaks to why the Rolling Stone cover with Dzhokhar Tsarnaev is the real problem for anyone who is tired of the media meddling and interfering with trying this case when the courts should by trying the guy. If this case ends in a mistrial, the jury pool is already tainted anyhow.

What worries me more is that America is becoming too comfortable with the media covering up some stories while expounding on others, depending on what political affiliation the subject of the story entails.  This is NOT journalism.  I do not even consider it to be close to being worthy of the term.  Reporters should be reporting any breaking story–not the ones that make one person look bad as they work to protect the political entities they tend to favor–or those who own them…Take your pick on that one.

If the powers that be don’t want to get their heads out of their fannies and fix the mess in this country, then the moderates need to band together with other independents and simply vote libertarian and be done with  these jokers already. I’d truly prefer it if the bankers were jailed with them too, but I did notice that OUR media didn’t report on what Iceland did to fix their economic woes and the people did it–not the government

The media also needs to inform the government that children are NOT their property. They are not property of the village, state,  collective or whatever the hell they want to call it. In fact, I am thinking that government is too big, paid too much and doing to little to preserve this nation. They should be fired. It’s that simple. I’m tired of both parties making excuses and pointing fingers at each other, and pitting Americans against each other on what should be common sense issues. Stop trying to legislate who can be with who–whether it’s marriage or whatever.  In short, the government, along with most Americans can make this a better place by tending to their own back yards instead of trying to control what everyone else does in theirs. If the media would listen to the viewers (the majority of whom are fed up with the bull going on in Washington), they might enjoy better ratings for a change.

And for those reporters who claim to be Christian out there–get the board out of your eye before trying to pull the splinter out of everyone else’s since judgment will begin with the “House of God”. If you read your bibles, then you should be able to quote chapters and verses that statement is out of. If not, stop being hypocrites and dust them off and read those things once in a while. Better yet FOLLOW the rules in it so you won’t be in other peoples’ business. It’s up to God to judge others–not you.

My mountain looks better all the time. I don’t have to listen to all the lies on the news up there too. The members of the media are tentacles of the beast that keeps this crap going and it is time that Americans stop judging each other and start pointing the finger at the leadership of this country, however they must quit believing the media first because all of them tend to lie too much or omit facts while being overly free with their opinions. They, along with the government have failed the country. It  remains divided. Now the PEOPLE must fix this mess because they will not. They will only make it worse. I am truly starting to wonder if Iceland had the right idea.

To Me No Tribute to the 9/11 Incident Equals This One…It is Short, Wordless, and Powerful.

See for yourself…

No movie made, no documentary filmed can have as much impact as these horses kneeling and looking toward the empty space where so many lives were lots on September 11, 2001.  Budweiser only aired this one time in January of 2002.

I remember where I was that morning. I was teaching classes that had 30 students or more, who went into utter shock.  One of my special needs students thought his parents went down on the plane that left Dulles.  We finally got him calmed down and when he realized they were in Dallas he was fine.

For two weeks afterward, counselors spoke with kids who were heartbroken for those in NYC who lost family members, friends, teachers, etc….They drew pictures and made cards for them.  Our country was united from old to young…

This is exactly why we must never forget this attack any more than this nation must never forget Pearl Harbor, lest we stay divided.
