In Memory And Never Forgotten
May God Grant Them Eternal Peace
"Yesterday, December 7, 1941,
a date which will live in infamy,
the United States of America was
suddenly and deliberately attacked
by naval and air forces of the
Empire of Japan."
-Franklin Delano Roosevelt,
It was 7:02 Sunday morning.
2400 Americans perished and the
United States entered WWII.
In Memory of 09/11/2001
A vicious and cowardly attack against
all that is good in our world. Over
3000 lives were lost in New York City,
extensive damage to the Pentagon in
Washington DC and a courageous
intervention by common citizens in PA;
all of it due to the power of evil men.
Twin Towers NYC
Courageous civilian mariners who
sailed into war zones to supply our
armed forces from WWI & II and on
into the Vietnam War. Over 10,000
Merchant Mariners lost their lives
in service to our nation.

To Honor The Men And Women
Of Our Armed Forces Medical Corps
Serving under the most horrific
battlefield conditions many lost their
lives in service to others.
Reverence and thanks to all
civilian workers during wartime;
without them our nation would not
have survived. Remember "Rosie the
Riveter" and so many others.
Tears In The Breeze
Unsung songs and the prayers of the doomed; now heard only in Heaven-Pleas for mercy, tears
Men and women of good repute called from the global community, nations whose prime authority resides in the dictates of Heaven above must intervene to remove the evil entity who led an entire people group into outrage and certain destruction. No nation of good will, no sane person, no honorable person can bear witness to this horror and do nothing. To be mute is to grant sanction. Armed intervention is not retribution; it is salvation. The tears of humanity flow for the child who never smelled a flower or had a toy to call his own - the prodigy who may have cured cancer or the virtuoso who may have created a symphony of peace for a world at rest. Let not they who have perished diein vain. "Never again," this must stop on our watch. We pray God's wisdom, courage and mercy upon those who bear the arms of righteousness for His name's sake and for the sake of the global sons and daughters of future generations of peaceful mankind. The people of The United States of America are the world's second best hope for peace on earth. GOD is mankind's only hope.
Amen & Maranatha
