Thanks for the compliments, but I don't deserve any medal. Tom, Bluesagewoman, Prov 3,5,6 do and others deserve a medal a lot more than I do.
And, really if I did get a medal, I'd have to give it to the real heroes anyway- OUR TROOPS.
To me, and I know Bluesagewoman and Tom, Prov and others feel the same way that it doesn't matter how many people are standing with you. Standing alone is fine with me. And, I know it is more than fine with them too. I also once heard one time that G-d plus one is a majority. And, really that's the way I see it.
They are the ones in our group that really deserve the credit and attention. I'm a little embarrassed to have the spotlight on me.
Please let's refocus the spotlight back on the troops where it belongs. That was the real purpose of the report.
G-d bless you all!
