    I was privileged to be able to visit the American Cemetery at Colleville-sur-Mer, Normandy last October. I arrived very early and, for almost an hour, I was totally alone in the cemetery. Think of those who gave their lives in what can only be described as Hell on Earth - Omaha Beach - on 6/6/44. Today, the American Cemetery is one of the most peaceful places on earth. Each white cross or Star of David represents a family shattered by loss, an empty chair at dinner, a full, productive life denied. Thank God for sending into our midst individuals who...

    Remember the Alamo! Remember Pearl Harbor! Remember 911! Remember the Democrats, Obama and the behind-the-scenes subverters of justice!!! The new battle cry should be the latter. Should Obama lose this election, the American people need to wake up, turn back to God and begin to make a real effort to live upright lives. Then, we need to clean this country out. People who have come here with Godless philosophies need to leave. People in government who are lying, cheating and subverting our constitution and governing process need to be punished and expelled.

Short days ago We lived, felt dawn, saw sunset glow, Loved and were loved, and now we lie, In Flanders fields. Take up our quarrel with the foe: To you from failing hands we throw The torch; be yours to hold it high. If ye break faith with us who die We shall not sleep, though poppies grow In Flanders fields.

    The Alamo should be remembered as the place where the Mexican Army, under command of General Antonio Lopez De Santa Anna, stormed a former Mexican mission defended by a band of Texans fighting for their independence. Among the defenders were our Masonic Brothers James Bonham, Jim Bowie, David Crockett, Almaron Dickenson and Col. William Barrett Travis. In rooms where priests had prayed, bayonets clashed with Bowie Knives and swords. Musket and cannon fire tore into the Texan defenders. By dawn, all the Texan combatants lay dead. Their sacrifice, on March 6, 1836, would immortalize them as legends, and turn the...
