Never Forget

Sept 11 Museum

There are people in this world who, through their wildly misguided view of God, innate cruelty and hatred, wish others harm.

Just because we don’t see it outside our own window, doesn’t mean it doesn’t exist.

Take a second today to pray for the lost.


And, as distasteful as it may be, take another second to pray for those who murdered them.

Happy Mothers’ Day

When I was a very small animal, my mum used to sing this to me when she tucked me in at night.

Whatever good might have come from my taking up space on this planet, I owe to my parents, especially my mother.

You’re my sunshine Mom!

Earl Morrall, the poster-boy for stick-to-itiveness, died at the age of 79.

Spartans Will!

Bon Voyage Earl!

It didn’t matter if you where another hugely successful person in the auto industry or if you were driving him somewhere or working in his yard or doing anything for him, waiting on him at a restaurant. He treated everybody the same. He was as humble as you could possibly be for a man as successful as he was.

Bon Voyage Mr. Ford!
