There’s no better present than that.

I know that is right, but I couldn't pass up this story. Friend of mine sent it to me and I had to post it.

I'm glad you posted it. But remember, CNN would and has exploited the deaths of our troops in order to further its anti-war agenda. And they're pro-ACLU/anti-Christmas also.

I saw this on the local morning news (Louisville).

The only bad thing is, I had to give CNN the Web hit they so desperately want.

Has anyone loaded it to YouTube?

I didn't find it there (just looked though). I don't think youtube is much better. They got some pretty scumy people out there posting. Ever once in a while, I post out on youtube to get under the commies skin. I about went off on this one:

This is the 3rd one of these I’ve seen today. FOX showed a couple earlier today .. one was a soldier who suprised his sons at their school .. and the other one was really cute .. mom took 2 children to see Santa - and Santa asked them their wish (for dad to come home) and then he told them to close their eyes and wish real hard and maybe daddy would come home - and sure enough - dad showed up!!

I totally lost it!!

Just a store Santa who was thrilled to play out the story for the children .. and he ended up teary-eyed at the end. Said it was a moment he will treasure.

It’s so tough — daddies shouldn’t be away from their kids. But at the same time, they’re protecting them — and all of us — from the enemy. Tragic. But honorable. War sucks. Of course, when there are enemies, it is necessary....
