When I was 15 God gave me Rosa P

When I was 15 God gave me a girlfriend straight from heaven, her name was Rosa from the Bronx. She lived on Arthur Ave. She loved me with all her heart even at that tender heart I knew. But I was stupid, young, I did not appreciate her. One day she came and sat in front of my apartment building for five hours just to speak to me. I was too chicken to face her. She finally gave up and left. But I don't know why she always, even after 40 years and three marriages held that spot inside my heart. Oh so many times I thought I would bump into her in the street but 40 years later I've never seen her again.
A week following the World Trade Center attacks I happened to bump into one of her friends who told me both her and Rosa watched me being interviewed on Ch 2 ( I was one of the responders). God only knows how proud I was at that moment.
What is happening now is I'm going through one of the toughest times of my life. I'm unsure if I'm going to make it. But every time I go to sleep Rosa is there, smilinging that smile she always smiled, putting her hands through my hair and looking into my eyes with those loving eyes like she always used to as if to tell me"Rocco. It will be all right". Then she stands , smiles and starts to walk away. I get up to try and follow but she smiles and says "Rocco not now, you can't". And then she leaves.
Why can't I follow her? I'm so afraid to answer that question!

Israel's Unique way of spoiling paradise for martyrs

Imagine your a supposedly successful suicide bomber in Israel. "Ah, my contribution to the destruction against those damned Jews is done" you shout in glee.And there before you are your beautiful 72 virgins, all ready and willing to grant you anything your evil heart desires. You choose one and approach her. She begins to disrobe. You reach out to touch her! All of a sudden someone taps you on the back. You turn and to your horror and see that it is Satan himself in all his malevolent glory with a big smile on his face. "Before you start to enjoy yourself look up, there's something I want you to see" states The Prince of Darkness with a booming laugh". With a sickly feeling of terror (no pun intended)  you look up what do you see? Your family, father, mother, siblings, pet hamster all being dragged from their home. screaming, fighting, pleading but to no avail. Next you hear a rumble and over the hill comes a bulldozer.Within minutes its job is done, your…

Breaking News Update: National Parks: Strange Disappearances Especially Children That Vanish Into Thin Air

This is a post I had written several weeks ago. Well Breaking News: CNN reporting that a child has been found after being lost in the woods for 3 days. Incredibly the child told authorities A BEAR! kept him company the entire time!
Since the inception of the National Park System was established more than 140 years ago our parks have grown from 1 to 450. They represent millions of square mile of scenic beauty, quiet, and escape into solitude. You can also swim, hike and disappear. Disappear? That's right, disappear into thin air. Not only adults but especially little children many of whom all it takes is a parent to bend and tie their shoe, look up and the child is gone. Not just gone but disappeared. Calling the child's name frantically, running in circles, screaming, nothing works. I means how far can a 3 year old child go so quickly? How about if I were to tell you 5 miles away, up a shear cliff, dead and stuffed in a tree?
Or there you are walking down a clear path on a br…

Trump Elected With Help From Pelosi and Schumer

Although it is obvious that Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer and others seethe at the very idea that Donald Trump is President of The United States but what they don't get is that they are some of the main forces behind Trumps victory! The American people got tired of the herd of political hypocrites, liars, thieves and just plain bums that were running our government. Americans got tired of all the indecent sobs that claimed empathy with the "people", like Nancy Pelosi who's $140,000 salary has miraculously mushroomed into a $200,000,000 fortune. Schumer, who spoils every Sunday morning with some inane announcement of outrage regarding, who knows, the ice at Rockefeller Center is really is 32.1 degrees instead of 32 degrees and vows to use every thing in his power to see that the perpetrators are brought to justice.
Americans have been getting sicker and sicker of the fact that their government was not for the people but for themselves. What American felt any, any ki…
