THE “HOTSHOTS’ a firefighter unit was killed in Prescott AZ. today fighting a dangerous fire. Coming from a police and fire fighter family, this is very sad. Please pray for them, that this fire is safely put out, and to all.
SHOCK is what we say on the events in Boston. Who in their right mind hit innocent marathoners at a run? Three killed and over 100 hurt. Meanwhile, the FBI get even closer to catching these villains!
Here is a nice piece I found that goes well with Memorial Day and on to months ahead we found at Church. Author unknown. Have a nice weekend.
‘Heavenly father, You are the real foundation of nations. raising them up to serve and care for the people dwelling in their boundaries. I thank you for making me a citizen of this land of freedom and unlimited opportunity these United States.
Send forth your spirit to this country and make it a source of wisdom and strength, order and integrity throughout the world. ‘ Have a Nice Memorial Day Weekend and God Bless our Troops. They have and are doing a fine job!
Help the league Of Conservation Voters protect the environmental Protection Agency from the continued push of big polluters and anti environment members of congress from ending the EPA standards that we depend on everyday! Water, air, and land protection. This is something this writer feels strong about and hope its doses stay.
Started by Pres. Nixon in the early 1970’s this has started the push for better air and water from corporations that took advantage of the law . Forgetting that we are God’s gate Keepers and have the duty to maintain what he gave to us. Because of this, pollution was cut back that time and I did see a change for the better compared to before with discolored air and wreaked waterways of oil and such!
This is nothing new of course. The natural parks idea started by Pres.Thomas Jefferson Later Pres. U.S. Grant enacted the first park in 1871. It was Pres. Theodore Roosevelt who enacted protection during the 1900’s against railroad barons and millionaires out to make a buck on the back of nature. He made many angry people but did what was right thing to do. Why we have to continue with EPA for example. Ask yourself? Do we want a place to see animals for example in nature livings or only a zoo? See more at www.lcv.org today.
Happy birthday to the Girl Scouts! 100 years and counting. They had Mrs. Clinton, Reese Witherspoon, and Laura Bush just to name a few. They helped the war effort in 1917 by selling those tasty cookies, Helped during the Great Depression, and built character of girls across America of good morals, self depended, and go getter. God-fearing.
Not to mention, respect of nature Why God put these places here for us to enjoy and not destroy. Nice work to them. Over 3.2 million. (see story at www.parade.com
It’s appalling that the State Department has been rushing headlong toward approval of the Key Stone XL tar pipeline, which could devastate the environments in both Canada and the United States. Tar sand have been called the ‘most destructive project on earth’ because it is laying waste to the great Borealk Forest , obliterating migratory bird nesting grounds and spewing excessive global warming pollution . In addition transporting the world’s most dirtiest oil to refineries in Texas and threaten birds and other wildlife there.
This area for example , will be in the path of this and threaten American heartland ‘s most entire ecosystems and drinking water supplies while rasing gas prices in the Midwest. This is not what God wants of us when he states we have command of the fish in the sea and beasts on the earth. ( See Bible first chapter.) This seems t o be a continued pattern going back to the days of President Theodore Roosevelt vs. those who wish to “improve .”
Call on President Obama and the State Department and tell them this is not in our nation’s best interest and serves no one in the long run. There has to be other cleaner ideas to use to get oil we need? Harming wildlife areas are not one of them. See the web link below and stop the Key Stone XL pipeline!
STOP TAR PIPELINE NOW PAGE-
From the Chicago Tribune
‘Washington-President Obama on Thursday endorsed a bill introduced by Sen. Dianne Feinstein D CA. that would repel the Defense Of Marriage Act , a 15-year-old law denying federal benefits for same-sex couples. Meanwhile in New York City, officials said that because of the overwhelming number of applicants , a lottery will decide who will be allowed to marry Sunday, when a new law allowing same-sex marriages to go into effect. ‘
In this writer’s opinion, call you U.S. senator now to tell him or her to VOTE NO on a national repel. This is wrong and they know that if they have any soul .
If they do vote for this, remember this in the upcoming election day and vote them out as I will as a good Catholic! Go to www.congress.org today and act before it is too late to do anything later!
