Putting Things in Perspective...

Sometimes, you realize that there's something more important out there. I just logged into Facebook to find out that a friend of mine stationed in Kabul came under attack yesterday. He's fine, his position is stable, but he said this and it about broke my heart:
It would've been nice to have seen my boys blow out their candles instead of manning a fighting position.
I am able to do this - attend the NRA convention, write about it on the internet, etc. because of men like my friend. He's putting his life on the line halfway across the world while he misses his kids's birthday, so that I can continue to enjoy my freedom. Words can't express how grateful I am that he and others like him exist and are willing to stand in harm's way so that I can continue to bloviate online about whatever crosses into my brain.

Stay safe, Marine.

That is all.

I'm sure you've heard this quote before from Winston Churchill or George Orwell or whomever: “We sleep safely at night because rough men stand ready to visit violence on those who would harm us.”

Freedom isn't free, is it Jay?

Apart from sorting them out from styes, attributes,
Motorcycle Fairings materials and so on, there is one important clue for tracing them.
Asics Tiger That is, from the brand itself. However, it is always not easy neither. Not only there are more and more brands going into fashion, but also the intricated product names are too difficult to remember them. Thus, the category of brands was ominized here. But if you prefer to sort them out via brands, I'd like to recommend a valuable women high heel shoes website for you, that is LadyShoesMall.com, which is an exclusive women high heel shoes online store.

Good to know he is safe, and I will think all good things for him. My thanks to folks who provide protection for our freedoms...
