Incredible Veteran's Day!

November 11, 2010

I just returned from a Veteran's Day parade, one of the many throughout the United States. This one was held in Antioch, California, a river front town in the northern part of the state. What a joy to see hundreds of patriotic Americans lining the sidewalks cheering on the veterans and military units traversing the main street of town, along with some of the newly elected politicians put into office by revolutionary voters in the most energized election in recent political history.

A Bum Deal Fascinating and Disturbing Look at Homeless Life--Book Review

Many automatically avert their gaze to avoid making eye contact when they see a homeless person on the street, since it is better, they feel, to not recognize through their own eyes, that homelessness exists. Those who look away are fighting a fear that they too could wind up on the street. As the philosopher, George Berkeley, reasoned, “What one perceives exists. What one does not perceive does not exist.” So what is playing out is fear, denial and perception defense.

To the homeless person, the turning of a head away from them signifies total rejection, because, they think, they are disgusting and less than human, a self-hatred perception which cause them even greater pain. They have been thrown away, rejected and treated as trash, being caught in a trap that seems inescapable.

A high percentage of those who recognize homelessness as a malfunction of society have no idea what the life of a homeless person is like behind the scenes. Maybe 50% have an idea. but less than 20% of those have knowledge of a particular form of violence in this mysterious, secret world (that is too familiar with violence in general), where the goal each day and night is simply to exist, to stay alive..

A TRIBUTE TO ALL VETERANS AND THEIR LOVED ONES

"GREATER LOVE HAS NO ONE THAN THIS, THAT HE LAY DOWN HIS LIFE FOR HIS FRIENDS." JOHN 15:14 (NIV)

 

On November 11, 2009, America will again set aside this very special day as a national holiday in honor of all military veterans. This is a very special day to recognize and lift up our military and each family and pray and show our love and appreciation.

This day we share a solemn allegiance to the heroism of those who died for our freedom and a deep gratitude for each victory. The Word of God states, "Greater Love has no one than this, that he lay down his life for his friends." This scripture expresses the truth about you, our Veterans, and especially those that paid the ultimate price for our freedom. We all humbly say, thank you.

America is blessed because of each of you. You are a priceless treasure to our Nation and many other Nations. May our Lord bless you and your loved ones with His bountiful love for your sacrifice. May the Peace of the Lord fill you and His favor and His honor fall on you in an increased measure. May His love and comfort fill you and each loved one today.

Our organization, The Christian Coalition of America led by our president, Roberta Combs, her family, staff, State Chairman, intercessors and activists, join our hearts in a special tribute in honoring all of you, our Military Veterans, on this very special day of remembrance.

God Bless You and God Bless America for your deep love and commitment to our Freedom.

Love In Christ,

Obama administration putting any veterans on the terrorist watch list is a disgrace

Most of us Vietnam war veterans, and many other Americans, are appalled at Barack Obama's Department of Homeland Security (DHS) putting out a so-called terrorist "watch list" this week which includes pro-lifers -- the natural enemy of such a radical pro-abortion administration -- but equally as bad, includes American veterans.

Yet, this is an administration which is headed by an individual who began his political career in the home of his friend, Bill Ayers, an unrepetent terrorist, whose associates committed murder against innocent Americans as part of their left-wing anti-America and anti-war activities.

Those of us who are also members of the American Legion, almost 3 million strong, are encouraged that the leaders of the American Legion are demanding a meeting with Obama's head of the DHS, Janet Napolitano, who was an extreme left-wing governor before selected as Obama's "security" chief.

On today's front page of 'The Washington Times," the national commander of the American Legion, David K. Rehbein, was quoted as saying: "I think that it is important for all of us to remember that Americans are not the enemy. The terrorists are." He blasted Napolitano's new "security" assessment report entitled: "Rightwing Extremism: Current Economic and Polticial Climate Fueling Resurgence and Recruitment."
