IMHO…A Moment of Silence

Going out to the garden in a little bit, but I have to get this off my chest first.  I read that the United States House of Representatives had a moment of silence for Michael Jackson.  Ok…fine…he was an extremely popular ENTERTAINER. My condolences to his family.

I worry for our “culture”.  I worry that our priorities are so skewered that an entertainer is mourned with more fanfare than young men  who truly did change the world.  *I* thank God for these young men.

  1. I am so with you on this one! Great post!

  2. ITA- Many in America are ignorant and have their priorities all wrong. Let’s hope the vast silent majority – will be silent no more and teach the others about true people to be idolized and commemorated.
