Very nice! We celebrate the U.S. Constitution this month. A great opportunity to instill the dream of our founders in the hearts of all Americans.

If you have some expertise, knowledge, experience please contact your local school. Ask if you can participate and share with our children. Nothing could be more important. Our children need to have positive role models from the community. We have so many adults who have great things to share. And, our children really love to hear stories. Story-telling is an age old way to pass down our history. So, please call you grandchild's or child's school and join the celebration of our great Constitution!

To the parents, friends, and acquaintences. I am sorry for your loss. He served his country as many have done before him and like more than a million others, he paid the ultimate sacrifice. No man or woman can do more. And for the others that have served, they,too, offered themselves up, but their GOD, did not want them yet. Take heart knowing that his GOD needed him now.
Thank You

Agree with 1-6. Our military is protecting the world, not just America. Protection from radicals that are bent on death for anyone not exactly like them, and anyone that gives the ultimate to provide this protective service is a hero.

[We celebrate the U.S. Constitution this month.]

May I remind ALL public schools - if you receive Title One Funds, IT IS A FEDERAL LAW that you celebrate Constitution Day on Sepetember 17th. Thats a Wednesday we celebrate NOT Tuesday or Thursday becuase you have football videos to show.
