WE WILL NEVER FORGET
Those empty chairs at the dining room tables across our Nation will never be filled; now memories take that seat. Mothers, Dads, Grandparents, Children, Friends
will learn and lean into each other
as they remember those lost that day
tears will flow when grief triggers are pulled
life contiues on, differently than ever before.
we can rest knowing
the most evil of the evil
has paid for organizing and implementing
the harm, the hatred, the deaths
Families, friends, neighbors, communites
soldiers, families of those who have died
for our freedom
can sleep just a bit easier
Bin Laden will never organize his terrorists
and laugh at our Nation and citizens again.
Justice is done
Thank-you to those who serve
so that we are free
WE STAND UNITED
just as we did that day
the world stood still
UNITED WE STAND
citizens of the
United States of America
We’ll never know who the skilled marksman was that fired that shot into the side of the face of Bin Laden
he is to be applauded
given a medal
hell give him a whole shoulder full of medals
as much steak and lobster he can eat!
Good morning May 3
a day of promise
a day of
and a day of
that we here in the USA
did not ask for war
we did not expect for such tragedies
to strike our homelands
and to feel such grief/shock and trauma
on that day
that beautiful morning as I remember it
when all of a sudden
everyone’s lives were turned upside down
we stood united
in a fast minute once we regain our footing
and went to work
and let the world know
that we would not stand for this
attack on American Soil.
This is our land
our Ancestors handed it down to us
at that time, as hearts broke, as shock and dismay filled the skies and God wept
along with all of us
many ran to enlist
wanted to re-join even those from WWII.
Folks that could
were first responders; many still suffering the effects of physical and emotional pain
from all that was witnessed, all the smells, the toxins that were inhaled and absorbed into the fabrics of the very beings.
deep in the hearts of those that were the first responders we had to hold the belief
that this evil piece of crap
called Bin Laden would ultimately be found
Justice would be served.
Now many will speculate on:
how did DNA come back so quickly
was it really really him
why did we allow him to buried at sea
why didn’t we do this or that
Oh yes, you can believe there will be
then there will be those that want to know
“why weren’t we told of this secret mission and thoughts that they knew where HE WAS”
Well, if ya think about it… if it was told, then it wouldn’t have been a “secret mission would it”
some things are just better kept between the President of the United States and his forces
is my thinkin.
As for the DNA, I would certainly like to think
they could do that PDQ in the event the leader of Al Qaeda wouldn’t you?
So now we can expect increased security at the airports, at the White House
just about everywhere for awhile
those who are zealots will probably want a little bit of retaliation I’m thinkin
after all those terrorists are not the sharpest knives in the drawer.
Now my thoughts on this:
and feel free to send them to the
President Obama, secretary of Defense and those marvelous Seals and Marines and the US Marshalls if you like.
But I’m thinkin:
Each and every airport and plane should have
on board as security
to walk the isle of the plane, to visit in the
cock-pits as well and to overall just increase our sense of safety. They can be dressed in
and just be cute as they can be.
It will serve two purposes here in my thinking.
1. Terrorists DO NOT LIKE THE THOUGHT OF PIGS AND DYING WITH PIGS … cos they will not get to that almighty place where all those virgins are.
2. Little pigs are guaranteed to fly and say “weeeee” all the way to the destination and amuse and delight those who fly!
make no mistake
any other groups who are thinking of doing harm to us or our people or President:
our colors do not run
if you come on our soil with intent of harming our citizens it will not be a good thing for you
we will not take it.
We are the home of the FREE
A Virginia Beach-based team of Navy SEALS is credited with finally bringing down Osama bin Laden, the man the United States
(and, well, the world) has been trying to capture for years.
We thank you “TEAM SIX”
we know you are there and will never know where there is or who you are
somehow I don’ t need to know,
I only know
somehow I feel safer.
“Team Six” – a moniker given to the Naval Special Warfare Development Group (or DevGru, for short) – had been undergoing extensive training to ensure that their raids would unfold flawlessly, even practicing their skills in a replicated one-acre compound built on Camp Alpha. DevGru belongs to the Joint Special Operations Command and reports to the President, their missions and training always highly classified. In fact, according to the National Journal, the general public isn’t told about the specifics of team members’ deaths: the weekend’s announcement regarding the capture of one of the world’s most wanted people proves that the group’s work in conjunction with the CIA can yield positive results. Currently, the JSOC is involved in more than 50 operations across several countries, which, all in all, cost the United States $1 billion annually.
The team captured bin Laden in an attack lasted about 40 minutes, during which a total of 22 people were killed or captured. It was reported that Bin Laden died as a result of one shot … one “between the eyes to the head”.
Thank you NAVY SEALS, JOB WELL DONE. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9CHESnfjtLI&feature=related
Thank you Ray Charles, nobody will ever sing it like Ray!
Just makes me want to stand up and holler
and listen to it all day long,
I am PROUD TO BE AN AMERICAN
I thank our President
blessings to him and his family
God Bless our troops
their fight to protect us all
so that we may have the enjoyments
of this day
a hot shower
when they do not get to bathe at all.
We have a bed
while they lay on the ground with one eye open and their finger on the trigger.
We have a hot meal if we choose
they have “rations” probably cold.
We have to decide “what should I wear today”,
they get to wear the same
US issue with bulk attachments
weighing about 50+ pounds.
We bicker and fuss and complain
on social network sites or with family or friends
about crap that really will not matter in a day or three.
THEY WONDER IF THEY WILL BE ALIVE TO SEE TOMORROW
oh by the way
how they would LOVE TO GET A PHONE CALL OUT TO A LOVED ONE OR A LETTER FROM HOME.
Kinda makes you put it in perspective
all the many gifts that are yours doesn’t it?
it is yours with oh so many choices
yours to make
we live in a country of freedom
because of those willing to fight for us
UNITED WE MUST STAND.
Some Gave ALL
All Gave More than we can even imagine
I thank you, your families, friends
I appreciate you all
My heart aches
each time a flag draped casket come home
I will be the first one
STAND BY YOU
Is it me, or anyone else notice that Mr Trump while he makes that throw my name and hair in for the Prez of white house… Notice he has not yet put a few million into Alabama or states of the SouthEast?
Don’t think he has sent his children down there to get their hands into some real work for humanity or community either,
but did read about how his trump mansions just keep growing new mansions to the tune of gazillions of dollars.
Maybe some of the folks now without homes could just move into one of those?
Really wanna know what he would be like
and our country under a “dictatorship”
take a look at his show on t.v.
see for yourself!
The fire is burning brightly, its embers are hot, the sage is filling the air.
God/Creator hold those in the Southeast against your bosom as they need strength in healing ways, we are with you Southeast
we are sending you HOPE, FAITH,
borrow ours while you are tired and weary.
Thank you to those who are serving our country, those who have served, those memories of our service men and women who are now on the other side, and gave all. We will not forget that you cared, that you gave all. Prayers to your families and those that love and treasure your memory.
Walk in Beauty,
