War is an ugly thing, but not the ugliest of things; the decayed and degraded state of moral and patriotic feeling which thinks nothing worth a war, is worse.
A man who has nothing which he cares more about than he does his personal safety is a miserable creature who has no chance at being free, unless made and kept so by the exertions of better men than himself.

“Freedom has a taste to those who fight that the protected will never know.”

"Must be some kind of brain damage. Only those with it can see it in others."

And in despair I bowed my head, "There is no peace on earth," I said. "For hate is strong and mocks the song of peace on earth, good will to men." Then pealed the bells more loud and deep, "God is not dead, nor doth He sleep; the wrong shall fail, the right prevail, with peace on earth, good will to men."

We sleep safely in our beds because…

Which Dog Are You?

Golden Retriever: The sun is shining, the day is young, we've got our whole lives ahead of us, and you're inside worrying about a stupid burned out bulb?

Border Collie: Just one. And then I'll replace any wiring that's not up to code.

Dachshund: You know I can't reach that stupid lamp!

Boxer: Who cares? I can still play with my squeaky toys in the dark.

Lab: Oh, me, me!!!!! Pleeeeeeeeeze let me change the light bulb! Can I? Can I? Huh? Huh? Huh? Can I? Pleeeeeeeeeze, please, please, please!

Jack Russell Terrier: I'll just pop it in while I'm bouncing off the walls and furniture.

Old English Sheep Dog: Light bulb? I'm sorry, but I don't see a light bulb!

Journey Into Fear

The Village Road was ice & snow covered as the dark suburban wound it's way through the Mountainous foothills, over burned out forest and past frozen marshlands.

The vehicle climbed above the 3,000' level and settled into a steady 50mph pace leaving a swirling wake of fresh fallen snow, the temps in that environment were at -40'F.
