20 Years… Reflection & Rememberance 🙏🏻 #neverforget

Its been 20 year since that horrific day!

• 2,977 Americans were Murdered!

• 343 Firefighters died saving others! Many that survived are dying from cancer now at an alarming rate! Thank a Firefighter today…

BUT – We survived! We united! We rebuilt!

#neverforget!

I remember that day and i remember this timeline. It was a day we can never forget!

Its been 20 years now. My wife was pregnant with our son when it happened. He is 19 now, working and going to school. Many of his peers don’t know much about what happened on 9/11! Watch the memorials with them today, they will be on ALL day! Talk about what happened that day & how it made you feel! We owe it to kids and we owe it to our fallen brothers and sisters to Never Forget! Lets reflect on the bravery of our first responders and say prayers for all the lives lost 🙏🏻 #neverforget !

We need to pull together again! Like we pulled together on 9/12! We rallied together, and we were stronger than we could have imagined! Prayers for our country and our countrymen today! 🙏🏻🙏🏻🙏🏻

God Bless America! 🇺🇸

God Bless America! 🇺🇸

I started out this morning headed to the post office to get some stamps… You know what happened 😊

In my rush to get started, I forgot what today is & Who it honors…

So, let me say –

‘Have a Great Martin Luther King, Jr. Day’!

“I believe that unarmed truth and unconditional love will have the final word in reality. This is why right, temporarily defeated, is stronger than evil triumphant.”

~ Martin Luther King Jr.

God Bless America 🇺🇸

Veterans Day 🇺🇸 Thank You For Your Service!

Veterans Day was originally called Armistice Day, because November 11th. was the day they signed the Armistice that put an end to WWI. Back then it only honored those who died in war. But in 1954 the day became known as Veterans Day & now honors all who have served our country. So let’s all thank a veteran today! Without all their hard work & sacrifice, we wouldn’t have the privileges & freedoms that we enjoy today.

Happy Veterans Day!

“The willingness with which our young people are likely to serve in any war, no matter how justified, shall be directly proportional to how they perceive the Veterans of earlier wars were treated and appreciated by their nation.”

~George Washington

Thank You to ALL Who Served!

God Bless America!

Thanks Pete! We all need a long weekend! 

By the way, I’m talking about Mr. – 👇🏻
“Peter J. McGuire, a carpenter and labor union leader, was the person who came up with the idea for Labor Day. He thought American workers should be honored with their own day. He proposed his idea to New York’s Central Labor Union early in 1882, and they thought the holiday was a good idea, too.”

Monday Morning Moment Of Zen…

I LOVE Tennessee! I especially love the Natural Springs, Creeks, Waterfalls and Rivers ❤️ In some areas of the state a beautiful stream, strewn with little waterfalls flows around and through every holler. I stopped by just such a stream the other day and walked down to the bank and took this short video to share this morning. It is such a relaxing sound and the water is as warm as a bath right now. So, Zen… 



Enjoy a wonderful ‘Zen Filled’ Monday!

Monday Morning Moment Of Zen

I usually post a Waterfall or nature shot for my Moment of Zen, but I thought this was a good offering as well. Hundreds And hundreds of fellow Americans celebrating our country together! Not 1 fight or argument did I see or hear of! I took this short video from the boat I was on, as you see LOTS of others came in their boats as well. 
Check it out 👇🏻



It was a great to see so many people getting along and cheering for our country! We need more of this ❤️

Thanks, and have a great day!

Sunday Reflections…

Went to bed late, and was up in time for the sunrise 🌅 What a wonderful 4th of July celebration! Now it’s off to breakfast 🥞 🍳 And then a nap 😴 😊 

God Bless America! 🇺🇸

What a beautiful evening to celebrate America! Great fireworks by Bob Keast and his Birdsong crew! God Bless America! 🇺🇸

 

“By the rude bridge that arched the flood,
   Their flag to April’s breeze unfurled,
Here once the embattled farmers stood
   And fired the shot heard round the world.
 
The foe long since in silence slept;
   Alike the conqueror silent sleeps;
And Time the ruined bridge has swept
   Down the dark stream which seaward creeps.
 
On this green bank, by this soft stream,
   We set today a votive stone;
That memory may their deed redeem,
   When, like our sires, our sons are gone.
 
Spirit, that made those heroes dare
   To die, and leave their children free,
Bid Time and Nature gently spare
   The shaft we raise to them and thee.”
 
   ~ Ralph Waldo Emerson

Happy Independence Day! 🇺🇸 God Bless America!

Happy Independence Day!

The Declaration of Independence changed everything! It changed the world! No matter your politics, today is the day for Americans to celebrate and wave Old Glory🇺🇸! I still get choked up when we all stand and put our hands on our hearts and pledge the flag! 

I’m proud of that “Ragged Old Flag”! How about you? #Godblessamerica!

Stars and Stripes Forever!

Freedom’s natal day is here.
Fire the guns and shout for freedom,
See the flag above unfurled!
Hail the stars and stripes forever,
Dearest flag in all the world.

   ~Florence A. Jones

 

Have a GREAT day! God Bless America!

Sunday Reflections…

Turn off the TV, lay down the smart phone, relax your mind for a little while… I’ve been reflecting on things lately. My life, family, country, God. I for one feel blessed! I am proud to be an American! I took this picture last night as we watched the sunset. Old Glory speaks volumes if you’ll listen…

I want to take a minute and say how thankful I am to be an American! No other country on the face of the earth affords us the rights and privileges that we have as Americans. Stand up! Speak your mind! Hold your ground! God Bless America! 🇺🇸

God bless America,
Land that I love,
Stand beside her and guide her
Through the night with a light from above.
From the mountains, to the prairies,
To the oceans white with foam.
God bless America,
My home sweet home.
God bless America,
My home sweet home.


Peace,

Happy Memorial Day!

Have a Happy Memorial Day! 

God Bless our hero’s! And God Bless America 🇺🇸

“We do not know one promise these men made, one pledge they gave, one word they spoke; but we do know they summed up and perfected, by one supreme act, the highest virtues of men and citizens. For love of country they accepted death, and thus resolved all doubts, and made immortal their patriotism and their virtue.”

 ~ James A. Garfield

God Bless America 🇺🇸
