A Hero's Return Home

I hope you will enjoy the following. I often have to bring bad news, but as far as I'm concerned this is a bitter/sweet bit of news. Yes, I believe that this country is being dismantled piece by piece - but I also believe that if the American people can catch the breath of patriotism - we will be saved. The following video is exactly how we should be acting. We need to put away the Progressive Movement, Marxism and Socialism. We need to return to our roots of patriotism and a love for the republic.

And...we need to find our first love - this country's deep roots in faith and God. If we go back to "In God We Trust", we just might find a stronger nation.

WOW! What a tribute.

Georgia is often at the top of the list in patriotism, caring, and appreciation.

This is worth taking the time to watch. You will be moved. Before you jump into the day's activities go grab a cup of coffee, sit down in the quiet of your office, home, or wherever you can watch this without interruption, and reflect on the valor of a soldier who volunteered to protect us.

Killed in action the week before, the body of Sergeant First Class John C. Beale was returned to Falcon Field in Peachtree City, Georgia, just south of Atlanta, on June 11, 2009. The Henry County Police Department escorted the procession to the funeral home in McDonough, Georgia. A simple notice in local papers indicated the route to be taken and the approximate time.

Nowadays, one can be led to believe that America no longer respects honor and no longer honors sacrifice outside the military. Be it known that there are many places in this land where people still recognize the courage and impact of total self-sacrifice. Georgia remains one of those grateful places. The link below is a short travelogue of that day's remarkable and painful journey.

Only watch this if you wish to have some of your faith in people restored. Please share widely.
