My hero for the day!

I found my hero for the day.

And this is how it happened.
I’m standing in a store and
this guy comes in and he’s
looking for something.
I don’t even know what it
was or if he found it,
but before he left has asked
of everyone present:
“Do you know anyone
with a house for rent?”

Those present did not,
and then he asked;
“Do you have any newspapers here?”
He was informed they did not sell newspapers there.… —-> Continue…

Would you have stopped?

It’s dark out and I’m driving with my
son across the 205 bridge from

“If you can’t say something nice,
don’t say anything at all.”

My Mom used to say this when I was a kid,
and I was again reminded of it the other day
while on the phone with someone who
had very little nice to say.… —-> Continue…

Independence Day

Independence Day:liberty 220x165
a Declaration of Independence
is nothing unless we continue
to ACT independent
of our government.

The same holds true today
as it did 233 years ago.

If our forefathers could see
what we have done with the
liberty their lives have paid for,
I wonder if those brave revolutionists
would ever have signed the
Declaration of Independence -
knowing that it would be
their death warrant.
