  Hello to everyone on this forum aspecially Navy Karen and Jammie.Its been a while since my last post and have missed you all.
  These past cople of weeks has been a whirl wind of a ride,all I've been able to do is to hang on and ride it out some has been good some has been not so good,but we mist take the good wiyh the bad.
 I;m finally working full time now.I travel to Alabama,work two weeks come home for two days ,and then start all over again.
 I work for a company that does home reposessions,all I do is the maintanance and some minor repair work.I have nothing to do with the reposession ,I drew aline there ,there are somethings even I wount do.
 Are twq weeks in Alabama has taught me a lot about compassion,after seeing how many people out there are loosing every thing they got has taken a toll on my mentally to actually see these people who need help and there is none out there for them.I know I shouldnt get involved emotionally,but how can a person avoid doing such as this? I might be a little hard hearted but Im not cold herted...
   Ive seen the oil slick in Mobile Bay and this is also very disturbing to ,to see the devistation that trhis disaster is causing.The worst part of it is that most of what you see on T.V concerning this is a lie.Its bad and I mean real bad,Im sick mentaly and fisacaly iver this Im sick of our president and the lies he tells the public.Im sick of going to peoples houses that have lost every thing on count of our president who dont know jack beens about this country and the people who makes America what it is.Am I venting? Yes and I'am ticked off as well.Every thing that America is about we are losing it to people who get offende when you say Merry Christmas we have lost a great deal of are way but the worste is yet to come.Our president is taking our country to hell in a hand basket and what does he do?he goes on vacation.
 where are our young men who is fighting a war we should never have been in?They are over seas fighting a lost cause when they should be home with their wives and kids...In the mean time while all this is going on our president goes on vacation!
  maybe I shouldnt think or feel this way but my God we are in some serious trouble here while our president goes on vacation.

thx 4 the insight into your employment-you do have a warm ticker-i knew this from your 1st post. having a vent about your countries situation is okay. i actually respect it. a lot of countries are suffering-but due to the many spin dr's we are told only what they perceive we should hear. (jingoism) keep well. cheers, jamie.

Hi Loner,

Glad to see you post. I am glad that you are working. This is good for you. I am sorry that you are seeing so much devistation at this time. You can be there emotionally for the people, but you can't help them all. Remember that this is a big problem and you can't fix it alone. I hope that they get this spill cleaned up. But afraid it is too big. Keep up the good work. You have been doing good since coming to the forum. I am so happy for that.

I hope that you continue to feel well and I hope that you have a good day. Thanks for posting Loner.

Hugs, Karen

Glad to hear about the good things going on in your life...

If you have never read a "Soldier's Night before Christmas" it might be helpful.

Plus I thought this might help:
"I have never been able to think of the day as one of mourning; I have never quite been able to feel that half-masted flags were appropriate on Decoration Day."(this is what Memorial Day was called) "I have rather felt that the flag should be at the peak, because those whose dying we commemorate rejoiced in seeing it where their valor placed it. We honor them in a joyous, thankful, triumphant commemoration of what they did." ~Benjamin Harrison

Indeed I agree with Gen. Patton on this one thank goodness, such people have lived, because in serving we serve all of humanity and hope for that for all those who have walked before us and our own sacrifice that somehow or another has enriched the human race. This day is a reaffirmation of my daily mission.
