This page, like so,
so many others on the WEB, has come out of my
realization of how deep I had slipped into complacency.
I won't even try to compete
with the fantastically designed sites on the internet.
I simply want to offer you,
when you happen by, a few thoughts that I have had and a chance to
copy OUR flag if you would also like to display it. I have put most
of the graphics on a separate page to allow this one to load faster,

It is unclear to me what the intent of those
responsible for planning the terrorist attack was, however:
1. If it was
to garner the U.S. the sympathy of the world - it worked!
2. If it was
to pack churches over the globe in prayer - it worked!
3. If it was
to fill blood banks with eager-to-give donors - it worked!
4. If it was
to open the homes of caring strangers to stranded passengers - it
5. If it was
to strengthen the spirits and resolve of those affected - it
6. If it was
to bond people closer - it worked!
7. If it was
to make visible the strength, love and courage of countless
healers, volunteers and emergency personnel - it worked!
8. If it was
to bring out the best in people - it worked!
If it was to
instill in the hearts of North Americans the same evil that
conquered their own hearts and the hearts responsible for
their upbringing - it FAILED!

I put here, I will not changes anything in them. If the owner
of the web site that it comes from tells me by email that it was a
typo, I will correct it and remove this statement.
Some other things
I've run into on the WEB:
"LET US HAVE FAITH THAT RIGHT
AND IN THAT FAITH, LET US, TO THE END,
DARE TO DO
OUR DUTY AS WE UNDERSTAND IT."
"President Told" is the name
of this picture (Click here for larger View) and I believe this is a good spot for
me to voice my opinion, and that's all it is, I don't want email,
etc. about all other opinions, this is my web site, so I get to put
my opinion here.
I believe GOD had the right man in
the right spot at the right time. The BIBLE says GOD has given the
rights and reasonability to governments to govern and protect it's
people. IT goes on to talk about giving the sword to the government
and that at times they must take up the sword against the enemy.
I think this is one of those
times, I have not always agreed with our governments decisions and
actions, but at those times I stood behind the government's decision
and did not walk the streets protesting.
I believe that the way to show our
disagreement with that type of thing is through our courts and our
voting power, again, we need to stand united with others that share
our views so that the majority rules. That is the way of DEMOCRACY,
and that is what we are defending.

The Creation of the Fire
When the Lord was
creating fire fighters, he was into his sixth day of overtime when
an angel appeared and
said, "You're doing a lot of fiddling
around on this one."
And the Lord said, "Have you read the
specification on this person? Fire fighters have to be able to go
hours fighting fires or tending to a person that the
usual everyday person would never touch, while putting
the back of their minds the circumstances. They have to
be able to move at a second's notice and not think
what they are about to do, no matter what danger. They have to be in
top physical condition at all
times, running on half-eaten
meals, and they must have six pairs of hands."
shook her head slowly and said, "Six pairs of hands...no
"It's not the hands that are causing me problems,"
said the Lord, "it's the three pairs of eyes a fire fighter
"That's on the standard model?"
asked the angel.
The Lord nodded. "One pair to see through
the fire and where they and their fellow fire fighters should fight
fire next. Another pair here in the side of the head to
see their fellow fire fighters and keep them safe.
another pair of eyes in the front so that they can look
for the victims caught in the fire who need their
"Lord," said the angel, touching his sleeve, "rest and
work on this tomorrow."
"I can't," said the Lord, "I
already have a model that can carry a 250-pound man down a flight of
safety from a burning building, and can feed a
family of five on a civil service paycheck."
circled the model of the fire fighter very slowly, "Can it
"You bet," said the Lord. "They can tell you
the elements of a hundred fires and can recite procedures in
sleep that are needed to care for a person until they
reach the hospital. And all the while they have to
their wits about them. Fire fighters also have
phenomenal personal control. They can deal with a scene full
pain and hurt, coaxing a child's mother into letting go
of the child so that they can care for the child in
And still they rarely get the recognition for a job
well done from anybody, other than from fellow fire
Finally, the angel bent over and ran her
finger across the cheek of the fire fighter. "There's a leak,"
pronounced. "Lord, it's a tear. What's the tear
"It's a tear from bottled-up emotions for fallen
comrades. A tear for commitment to that funny piece of

pain and suffering they have encountered. And it's a tear for
commitment to caring for and saving lives of their
"What a wonderful feature. Lord, you're a
genius," said the angel.
The Lord looked somber and
said, "I didn't put it there."
I will from time to time add to
this tribute to the AMERICAN FLAG
and it's PEOPLE as I sort through the many items I have collected
since 9-11-01 and as other people email them to me.
