A short poem you won't forget.
"A bump in the road" ..... remember that calloused statement? I dont know the author of this poem. Received it today. Very thought provoking and poignant. I do recall, however, the President referring to the Benghazi incident as "a bump in the road."
Today I heard an ex-Navy Seal being interviewed on Fox News regarding a book he has written about how to handle crisis situations in our lives.
At the end of the interview he asked if he could make a comment on Benghazi and of course the anchor said yes.
He then thanked Fox News for keeping the Benghazi story in the news, since other news organizations are not. He said the Seals who died deserve the public knowing the truth about the whole affair.
The poem was written by a MARINE CORPS Officer (unknown).
THE BATTLING BOYS OF BENGHAZI.
We're the battling boys of Benghazi
No fame, no glory, no paparazzi
Just a fiery death in a blazing hell
Defending our country we loved so well.
It wasn't our job, but we answered the call,
Fought to the Consulate and scaled the wall.
We pulled twenty Countrymen from the jaws of fate
Led them to safety, and stood at the gate.
Just the two of us, and foes by the score,
But we stood fast to bar the door.
Three calls for reinforcement, but all were denied,
So we fought, and we fought, and we fought 'til we died.
We gave our all for our Uncle Sam,
But Barack Obama didn't give a damn.
Just two dead seals who carried the load
No thanks to us.........
We were just "Bumps In The Road."
So will this reach every American with a computer? Or do we act like the press and give a pass to the incompetent people who literally sat there in the White House and watched the Seal's execution on live streaming video and did absolutely nothing?
The Obama Administration obviously won't be held accountable because we apparently accept Hilary Clinton's statement:
"What difference does it make?"
the first line begins like the old Battling Bastards of Bataan...no mooma, no poppa, no uncle sammy...
Oh it’s moving Bub and thank you for this and your service. I know I am sending now to my son and he’ll send it on to his Marine buddies and my brother to his Marine buddies and to my two cop brothers as well.
it will get out there.
Thanks again. and by the way it’s a beautiful poem.
Had bit of a tough time there near the end.
bump this ... no pun intended. This poem deserves a statue.
Passing it on....Thanks
This filthy murderer was AWOL as our people were slaughtered at Bhenghazi, and has yet to give an account of where he was and what he was doing.
Impeachment on a plate, if you will.
bookmark to copy/paste/forward later tonight.
