All the news I wish to print

There are all kinds of stories out there. Some will make you laugh, some will make you cry. Some will make you shrug, some will make you scream. Read any daily paper or listen to any newscast and your emotions can go from happy to sad to disbelief to fear to incredulity to horror to anger in very short order.
As we go along, there will be stories, as Paul Harvey used to say, to "wash your ears out with." There will be others that will make you feel like you need to be deloused simply by virtue of have in heard or read them. Some posts will be religious, some secular and for some I expect will defy easy classification in either category. I hope you will join me in this journey and pleas feel free to comment along the way.
For my part I pledge not to remove any posts unless they are vulgar, libelous, threatening or otherwise in violation of the standards of civil discussion. I will not remove any post simply because I disagree with it but I will reserve the right to respond to any challenges that come my way.
God bless you and welome to my blog.

The Americans

Today we are remembering those who perished s the result of a monstrous act of hatred toward America and Americans. Even in the face of such absolute evil there are those who would be apologists for those who perpetrated this atrocity, insisting that they had good reason to harbor such emotions and that we brought this on ourselves. Well America is not perfect and our best intentions may not have always resulted in the best results. We even have our own sins to atone for such as slavery and our treatment of Native Americans. and there are those even in public office in our own country who wish to define us by such dark standards. But I am proud of our country, warts and all, because what truly defines America is referred to in this presentation, writen by one Canadian and performed by another.
