Kenya shopping mall attack: Stories of the heroes and the victims - From a boy who took on terrorists to the off-duty SAS soldier | IBLANGLIT | Scoop.it
For every story of a life randomly extinguished in the Westland shopping mall massacre there was another of selfless bravery, compassion and human solidarity in the face of unimaginable terror.

The PM has announced that to honor Belize's national heroes, the Western Highway will be renamed George Price Highway.  The Northern Highway will be renamed Philip Goldson Highway.  Great idea!  Happy Independence Day!

 

"HONORING OUR NATIONAL HEROES: The Rt. Hon. the Prime Minister Mr. Dean has just announced the renaming of the Western and Northern Highways.  The Western Highway is now the George Price Highway.  The Northern Highway is not the Phillip Goldson Highway Way to go our National Heroes."

God bless our heroes,RIP Dad...Crowds storm WWII memorial

God bless our heroes,RIP Dad...Crowds storm WWII memorial | IBLANGLIT | Scoop.it

WASHINGTON - Thousands of people converged on the World War II Memorial on the National Mall on Sunday morning and tore down the barricades blocking it off, protesting the closure of the memorial during the federal government shutdown.

Beginning at about 9:30 a.m., Sens. Mike Lee, R-Utah, and Ted Cruz, R-Texas, as well as former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin, were among the luminaries in a crowd that chanted "Tear down these walls!" and sang "God Bless America" as well as other patriotic songs as they entered the memorial, which has been closed since the government shutdown that began Oct. 1.

Tractor-trailers headed down 17th Street toward the Mall, blaring their horns. The Metropolitan Police Department blocked off the street, prompting the crowd to head up the street, shouting at the police to move their vehicles.

Palin said that closing the memorials was disgraceful, and that President Obama "could be here today, saying 'Yes, we can tear down these barricades."

Cruz said that President Obama was using veterans as political pawns in the shutdown. Lee shouted, "The sons and daughters of the United States of America are meant to live in liberty."

God bless our vets, especially the WWII vets of our Greatest Generation, if my dad could be there he would, sadly he lost his last battle on Friday, but is now at peace with our Heavenly Father. In a way I think he is the lucky one, he no longer has to suffer and endure the misery of this sinful world.

 

God bless you Dad and all our military heroes, past and present!
