Take Time To Remember

Posted by DJM on May 31, 2010

As you enjoy the day today, please take a moment to remember those who gave their lives to keep us free and safe.

If you are able,
save them a place
inside of you
and save one backward glance
when you are leaving
for the places they can
no longer go.

Be not ashamed to say
you loved them,
though you may
or may not have always.

Take what they have left
and what they have taught you
with their dying
and keep it with your own.

And in that time
when men decide and feel safe
to call the war insane,
take one moment to embrace
those gentle heroes
you left behind.

Major Michael Davis O’Donnell
1 January 1970

Happy Memorial Day! Poem and Pics

Posted by avideditor on May 25, 2009

A time for thanks and remembrance

I am thankful For knowing I have a place as I awake to a new day

For the right to speak my mind or kneel quietly and pray…

For the dreams that I strive to reach. For the love I am free to give

For the laughter shared with dearest friend – the necessity to live…

For the security and peace of mind knowing all is safe and sound

For growing, sharing, hoping and caring. For goodness that is all around…

For all of this we are grateful , whispered soundly or loudly sing

Their duty, their sacrifice have let our freedom ring… Read the rest of this entry »

Memorial Day gone wrong: Germany Awards Former SS Doctor

Posted by avideditor on May 26, 2008

I would like to thank all that gave their life in order to defeat the greatest evil of last century the Nazis. I hope my generation has the courage, willpower, and strength to defeat the greatest evil of century Radical Islam. It looks like Germany is at it again helping jihadist like Iran, while honoring Nazis. This news just makes me sick. 


(IsraelNN.com) The German Federation of Internal Medicine has awarded a former Nazi SS doctor, suspected of carrying out euthanasia. Dr. Hans-Joachim Sewering, 92, was honored for giving “unequalled services in the cause of freedom of the practice and the independence of the medical profession and to the nation’s health system,” according to the Federation.

American Jewish organizations previously have charged that Sewering killed 900 Jewish children at a euthanasia center. He has admitted to being part of the elite SS unit but has denied carrying out euthanasia.
American Jewish Dr. Michael Franzblau, who has spent tens of thousands of dollars in an attempt to prosecute Sewering, has said in previous speeches, “I would like the German medical profession to recognize that they have a stain on their honor by his continued presence.”

Happy Memorial Day! Thanks to the US Military Don’t forget these words from FDR

Posted by avideditor on May 26, 2008

I found this over at the Jawa Report 

Thanks to the US Military


FDR: December 24, 1943

“And today we salute our unseen allies in occupied countries, the underground resistance groups and the Armies of Liberation. They will provide potent forces against our enemies……

There have always been cheerful idiots in this country who believed that there would be no more war for us if everybody in America would only return into their homes and lock their front doors behind them.”

Happy Memorial Day Everybody, Enjoy Freedom
