Thoughts and Thanks

Found the following on my iGoogle page this morning….Einstein quotes….widget thingy…….

“The world is a dangerous place to live, not because of the people who are evil, but because of the people who don’t do anything about it.”

That made me think of George Orwell….

“Good people sleep peaceably in their beds at night only because rough men stand ready to do violence on their behalf.”

That made me think that there are people who want to do something about it….READ….READ….READ

And…I’m thinking of the paraphrasing of the Gen. Patton quote that appears in every Wednesday Hero post…

“We should not only mourn these men and women who died, we should also thank God that such people lived.”

Thank you Eddie. Thank you and God bless you David.

Love, Mom
