In probably the most poignant moment I have ever heard on talk radio, a retired Marine was weeping on the Dennis Prager show this morning.
He was choking on tears when he told Dennis that Dennis had been doing the Lord's work. Then, he asked Dennis if this finally meant that the Vietnam veterans had been vindicated. He could barely get that out. Dennis assured him that such was indeed the case.
Finally, these brave men who gave so much and were trashed by a traitor have been welcomed home.
Dennis admitted that he cried twice today in great relief that our country has been saved. The South and the values of Middle America made the difference. He went on to say that the North once saved our Union; now the South will save it.
This was the most important election of my lifetime. No matter how old you are, it is probably the same with you.
oh crap, now I'm tearing up
I too suspected that if Kerry had won, God had indeed lifted his hand from our country.
God Bless him.
Thank you for posting this.
I did the same. You should have heard it. Actually, Dennis may have a replay online later today. I'm not sure.
Brave men make Marines. Marines make brave men.
I posted on one of the Kerry concedes threads that I had tears in my eyes when I heard he was giving in to the obvious.
Finally, the Vietnam chapter has been closed, and it has been closed with honor. Welcome home vets, it was a long journey but you've finally come home.
We should have a parade, well overdue, honoring our Viet Nam soldiers. We should do it simultaneously with a recall initiative from Massachusetts to remove this empty suit of a senator, poor example of a vet and dishonorable traitor from his civil service job which he barely shows up for.
God bless all the Vietnam vets.
The youth are turning conservative. At least that is what I am seeing.
Kerry has been put in his place by real war hero's. Thank you vets. God Speed
That breaks my heart! Our Vietnam vets should have never been treated the way they were treated. kerry is a vile man and it is a blessing he was not elected into office.God bless our Veterans!
One of my employees announced that Kerry was going to concede and I just wanted to burst into tears, but I held it together. Now, tonight when I go home and watch the replay of Bush's acceptance speech I am sure that I will cry.
thank you FL and OH. thank you South and Midwest. and thank you, ol' salty Marine, for your service.
Thanks for more tears. I think when I am on my way home from work, a 30 min drive, I will have a good cry.
Or maybe later.
Lack of sleep, relief, tension, giddiness...whew!
