A Little Light is Shed

This morning the media is all a buzz over an actor’s comments before members of Congress. I have heard the word Hero tossed around as part of the conversation. The Heroes are those who went into the burning towers knowing they may never come out. The Heroes are the American who signed up for military service to go after the people who killed over 3,000 Americans on that day. Unfortunately in America today the word Hero is misused and misunderstood.
An actor who speaks out is not a Hero, he is someone using his God given talent to help others. At no time was he in danger. Empty seats at a Congressional Meeting are not scary, just normal. Normal like the empty seats in the NYS Legislature when they don’t think enough cameras will be in the audience.

Snow Day

After doing a little talking on the radio I created a list of the tasks I wanted to accomplish on a snow day. The listed started out with the normal everyday stuff – load of laundry, walk with Woody, make something that could simmer on stove all day, clean up files on computer, update mailing list, draft Marine Corps League newsletter and shovel snow. Like I said, just normal stuff. I was going through some of my files and found a few radio interviews from 2012 and 2013 so I had to listen. No matter how time passes things don’t change! There is still a segment of America that hates America and then there is the rest of us who are so proud to be Americans. That will most likely never change. Here we are in 2018 and we are still dealing with the struggles in Washington, the spending in Albany with a Governor who is a spend-a-holic and a legislature that is weak. I guess we should just be happen nothing ever changes.
