Repeat After Me...

Hem your blessings with thankfulness so they don't unravel.

The eldest seester; O'Wise One, had sent me the link to Ray Stevens "We the People" video the other day. After watching it again, I couldn't help but think that he did a fantastic job on voicing how a growing majority of Americans are feeling towards our (seemingly unconnected to their constituents) government officials. And if you haven't watched it yet, you can do the clicky click thing here to view a masterpiece. Seriously, I think he speaks for millions of us.

While doing a quick look see today while viewing Ray's video, there was another one that he had posted on Ray Stevens dot com. The title caught my eye because it has the words that are the most two important words in the English language..."Thank You!"

Imagine, if you will, that you were in Haiti when this past weeks 7.0 earthquake struck. You are amid chaos, no food, no shelter, no water. And then...The United States Military starts showing up. Yes, there were other members of the worlds search and rescue teams. And so many countries have pledged their support to Haiti.

But, How do you express your appreciation for those in uniform, and those who responded to your plea for help?

Those two simple words, "Thank You!" So easy to say, and yet, they can be the most eloquent words ever heard... Just listen to Ray's version below.

Will you repeat after me those two little words?
Thank You!!
Pretty easy, yes?

I know I'm especially thankful today. I got to see mine last night after missing him for what seems like a lifetime but has only been a little over 6 months.

And so it goes......

Another great post, KYW.

I will post both videos, too. Ray has things that need to be said and heard.

Thank you,John.
I've admired Ray Stevens for more years than I care to remember. He is part of that generation that understands the costs and sacrifices our Military pays to keep us free.

Sadly, that generation is fading away. I hope and pray that we will have enough patriotism in our young children to continue that long line...

Parents and grandparents are the ones who must instill that virtue as the school systems across this country have abandoned those things they consider politically uncorrect.
