A Proud American
IT IS THE SOLDIER
It is the soldier, not the reporter,
Who has given us freedom of the press.
It is the soldier, not the poet,
Who has given us freedom of speech.
It is the soldier, not the campus organizer,
Who has given us the freedom to demonstrate.
It is the soldier,
Who salutes the flag,
Who serves beneath the flag,
And whose coffin is draped by the flag,
Who allows the protestor to burn the flag.

--- Father Denis Edward O'Brien, USMC

I've seen that before. Have you ever read "The Stand"? I'll have to find it and post it. It's really good.

Hey, sorry I didn't respond to your post earlier....But yes, I am going to Simmons. I got a kick-ass room in Liverpool, so I'm all set.

Mind if I friend you? Where do you work?
