Memorial Day Reflections

"Soldier, rest! Thy warfare o'er,
Sleep the sleep that knows not breaking,
Dream of battled fields no more.
Days of danger, nights of waking."

- Sir Walter Scott


"Sure I wave the American flag. Do you know a better flag to wave? Sure I love my country with all her faults. I'm not ashamed of that, never have been, never will be."

- John Wayne


"Patriotism is not short, frenzied outbursts of emotion, but the tranquil and steady dedication of a lifetime."

- Adlai Stevenson


"They fell, but o'er their glorious grave Floats free the banner of the cause they died to save."

- Francis Marion Crawford


"We come, not to mourn our dead soldiers, but to praise them."

- Francis A. Walker

Memorial Day - History of Decoration Day

Memorial Day was originally known as Decoration Day because it was a time set aside to honor the nation's Civil War dead by decorating their graves.

Violence and Domestic Abuse
by Maury Feren

I can't stand by and watch and hear about all the violence that is taking place in our society nationwide. But that is not the worst of it.

It is so hard to understand why beautiful women and even not so beautiful are willing to accept abuses such as beatings and verbal attacks as an acceptable tool for a man to be in control. How can that happen? What is the reasoning behind it? Is there any way that we can make an indentation and put some type of end to it. Aren't we the public aware of the change in our society?

Advice from Dear Webby - Different Political Views than Friends

Dear Webby,

It seems like I have very different political beliefs than most of my friends. Whenever they start talking politics I just back off, not wanting to make waves. But then I get home and feel like a wimp for not standing up for what I think is right.

And I don't want them to think I agree with them because I am not arguing. What can I do?

Not Politically Correct

#1 NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER • SOON TO BE A MAJOR MOTION PICTURE

In boyhood, Louis Zamperini was an incorrigible delinquent. As a teenager, he channeled his defiance into running, discovering a prodigious talent that had carried him to the Berlin Olympics. But when World War II began, the athlete became an airman, embarking on a journey that led to a doomed flight on a May afternoon in 1943. When his Army Air Forces bomber crashed into the Pacific Ocean, against all odds, Zamperini survived, adrift on a foundering life raft.

Ahead of Zamperini lay thousands of miles of open ocean, leaping sharks, thirst and starvation, enemy aircraft, and, beyond, a trial even greater. Driven to the limits of endurance, Zamperini would answer desperation with ingenuity; suffering with hope, resolve, and humor; brutality with rebellion. His fate, whether triumph or tragedy, would be suspended on the fraying wire of his will.
