Family First

"No government at any level, or at any price, can afford, on the crime side, the police necessary to assure our safety unless the overwhelming majority of us are guided by an inner, personal code of morality. And you will not get that inner, personal code of morality unless children are brought up in a family -- a family that gives them the affection they seek, that makes them feel they belong, that guides them to the future, and that will build continuity in future generations. . . . the greatest inequality today is not inequality of wealth or income. It is the inequality between the child brought up in a loving, supportive family and one who has been denied that birthright."

Homecoming Military Funeral

By the third song I couldn't fight back the tears any longer. This is a must-watch video. A good friend of mine in Afghanistan sent this to me.

Independence Day

God bless the U.S.A!

The fireworks going off late last night reminded me of my tour in Iraq. I'm glad to be home and enjoy the freedoms I have. God bless the troops--those who've served, those who are serving and those who will yet serve--and God bless America.
