The brave men of the Green Beret

Also I heard the voice of the Lord, saying,
Whom shall I send, and who will go for us?
Then said I, Here am I; send me.  
Isaiah 6:8

This scripture is read at each one of their funerals. I hope to never hear it until I am old, stooped, gray-haired and surrounded by great-grandchildren.  Watching the memorial services for those killed at Ft. Hood reminded me of this. None of the fallen were Special Forces soldiers, but each of the answered when our country called, "Here am I; send me."

I love this kid. I really do.

The Professor is insisting that wearing one red shoe and one blue shoe to school is "hilarious" and will make everyone laugh. Lacking the energy to argue with a 5-year old, guess what he is wearing to school today.
