"MAY WE NEVER FORGET THOSE WHO SACRIFICED ALL FOR OUR FREEDOMS"

 

MEMORIAL DAY IS THE HOLIDAY THAT MAKES OTHER HOLIDAYS POSSIBLE!

 

MEMORIAL DAY - ARLINGTON

(Written and Sung by Trace Atkins)

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wOih0MHNmZU



(From David Parkhill, Teacher at Odessa High School 1956-1964)

"No matter who you are or what you are today, always remember that millions of men and women fought and died so that you may have the opportunity to be free to make your life choices.

Today our Nation faces one of the greatest challenges to those freedoms. We have allowed people and ridiculous legislation to destroy 200+ years of freedom under the Constitution. It is time to stand up and defend our Great Nation for if you fail to do so then those millions will have died for nothing and we will become a Nation of slaves once more."

 

David T. Parkhill

THANKS TO OUR AMERICAN WARRIORS
 
From the colonist, who rebelled,
to the soldier of today,
My thanks, be to you,
I know not what else to say.

Since the words I do not have,
to give the tribute that is due,
So a simple heartfelt thanks,
sincerely I give to you.

Thanks to our American heroes,
whose devotion is second to none,
Whose courage and braveness alone
caused many battles to be won.

We have beaten the forces of evil
and carried our flag far and wide,
Because of our American Warriors,
our hearts are filled with pride,

Only because of you and the price
you willingly did pay,
Only because of you,
Old Glory still flies today!

Ramblings of a Retired Mind!

  • I was thinking about how a status symbol of today is one of those cell phones that everyone has clipped onto their belt or purse. I can't afford one. So, I'm wearing my garage door opener.
  • I also made a cover for my hearing aid and now I have what they call blue teeth, I think.
  • You know, I spent a fortune on deodorant before I realized that people didn't like me anyway.
  • I was thinking that women should put pictures of missing husbands on beer cans!
  • I was thinking about old age and decided that old age is 'when you still have something on the ball, but you are just too tired to bounce it.'
  • I thought about making a fitness movie for folks my age, and call it 'Pumping Rust'.
  • I've gotten that dreaded furniture disease. That's when your chest is falling into your drawers!
  • When people see a cat's litter box, they always say, 'Oh, have you got a cat?  Just once I want to say, 'No, it's for company!'
  • Employment application blanks always ask who is to be notified in case of an emergency. I think you should write, 'A Good Doctor'!
  • I was thinking about how people seem to read the Bible a whole lot more as they get older. Then, it dawned on me. They were cramming for their finals.
  • As for me, I'm just hoping God grades on the curve.
 
Enjoy Your Days & Love Your Life,
Because Life is a journey to be savored.
