Prayer for Those in the Service
Almighty God, we stand before you asking for your divine mercy and protection
As a serviceman in World War II I was proud to wear my uniform as a Marine. Many others had the same pride for their branch of service. In an attempt to belittle the acheivement of so many great Americans (particularly those that were/are in the heat of battle), our current occupant of the White House dons a Oriental-type suit and bows to the Emperor of Japan. What a disgusting display of politcal correctness, naivete and childish disdain for our Military and country.
Similar to the bow Obama extended to the Saudi King not too long ago he uses these rituals in expiation for the sins of America - according to Obama. He displays a contempt for our American culture and history. This is his style of hope and change.
First, I'm thankful for my wonderful wife of 62 years.
Second, I'm thankful for our sons, and our two fantastic daughters-in-law.
When the image of an admired person is tarnished it can leave many of us devastated. In the case of Tiger Woods it's almost unthinkable. Here's a young man who's captured the imagination and admiration of millions of Americans. And not all of the admiration is from sports fans. The complete spectrum of American life is embodied in this display of awe. The entire nation has followed his exploits on golf courses worldwide. Whenever he's in a tournament the viewing escalates to new heights.
And now we're faced with an auto accident on/near his property in the early morning hours of Friday, November 27th. Reports from the scene seem scant. We're told his wife had to break out a window of the SUV to get him out. The airbag didn't open so it's considered that the car wasn't going over thirty or so miles per hour. The car broke a fire hydrant and rammed a neighbor's tree. Reports indicated that he was treated at a hospital and sent home with minor injuries.
