A Tribute Never Equal to the Debt They Are Owed

“Today, we gather to honor those who gave everything to preserve our way of life. The men and women we honor here served for liberty. They sacrificed for liberty. And in countless acts of courage, they died for liberty. From faraway lands, they were returned to cemeteries like this one, where broken hearts received their broken bodies — they found peace beneath the white headstones in the land they fought to defend.
… The men and women of American armed forces perform extraordinary acts of heroism every single day. Like the nation they serve, they do not glory in the devastation of war. They also do not flinch from combat when liberty and justice are embattled. Ronald Tucker, Nathan Hardy and Mike Koch make clear, they do not waver — even in the face of danger.
And so today, here in Washington and across our country, we pay tribute to all who have fallen — a tribute never equal to the debt they are owed. We will forever honor their memories. We will forever search for their comrades, the POWs and MIAs. And we pledge — we offer a solemn pledge to persevere and to provide the security for our citizens and secure the peace for which they fought.
The soil of Arlington and other sites is filled with liberty’s defenders. It is nourished by their heroism. It is watered by the silent tears of the mothers and fathers, and husbands and wives, and sons and daughters they left behind. Today we pray for God’s blessing on all who grieve and ask the Almighty to strengthen and comfort them today and everyday.

On this Memorial Day, I stand before you as the Commander-in-Chief and try to tell you how proud I am at the sacrifice and service of the men and women who wear our uniform. They’re an awesome bunch of people and the United States is blessed to have such citizens.
I am humbled by those who have made the ultimate sacrifice that allow a free civilization to endure and flourish. It only remains for us, the heirs of their legacy, to have the courage and the character to follow their lead — and to preserve America as the greatest nation on earth and the last best hope for mankind.
May God bless you and may God bless America.”

THEY’LL be Racist, Sexist & Bigots!

“The Liberals are the ones who aren’t actually feminists, because they judge people based on politics not based off qualifications. Or even the fact that you can say feminist should mean ALL women. if they’re moving up to power that’s a good thing regardless if they’re Conservative or Liberal. They can’t go there ’cause they’re so tied to ideology. THEY’LL be racist. THEY’LL be sexist. THEY’LL be bigots.”

Their Passion is His Glory

“We are on the cusp of the emergence of a company of hidden men and women who, with all faith and patience, have been enduring great struggles and dealings; being processed by the Lord and filling up what is lacking in the afflictions of Christ. These are not those who seek a reputation for themselves, their passion is His glory and giving Him the church He has longed for. May God grant us all the heart of apostolic fathering and mothering that can release His power in the earth. Zion is once again in travail to bring forth her children.”

Put Yourself on That Happiness List

“As women, we’re nurturers by nature.  We want to make sure everyone is happy.  That’s a good thing, but we also have to put ourselves on that ‘Happiness List’.”

Beauty is in Good Health

“Good health is beautiful.”
“If you feel healthy inside and you put all healthy things inside, it’s going to radiate outside — besides the fact that prevention is the key to medicine.
You can prevent a lot of cancers by decreasing stress in your life, by just taking care of your body.
A lot of women, people in general, go to the doctors only when they feel sick or if they’re scared about a cancer or something like that.
But, you really want to go to maintain your health.”
