For You Fathers: There are no forevers, only moments

So many fathers grieve after their children grow or are gone that they didn't spend enough time with their children. But how many times were you with your child but weren't there? Standing next to your child as she ate an ice cream or frolicked a couple of feet away from you in a pool, but you weren't there. Your mind was a million miles away, thinking about work, or what you missed out in life(or so much more the case what you think you missed out in life). You sat there as if in a trance and one day you woke up and she was no longer there? It happened to me to my precious little girl. One day I woke up and she was gone. Sure my presence was with her during those times but not my full attention or my mind. How many times did she look up laughing to see me sitting there looking slightly away with a blank look on my face and not understanding. My God, My God. Please if You would only give me one, just one day back and I will never ask for another thing.
This came to me recently. I've been out of work while my sons mother has been working and I've been a stay at home dad. My son Gio shares a lot of traits with my daughter. I'm much older and there's not much to think about anymore. I spend a lot of time with him and his brother Santino. I've learned to cherish every moment with them. Santino is a tough little sob, lol. But Gio shares so many of the characteristics of my daughter, it's not that I love him more I'm just afraid of how innocent he is and how cruel this world can be. As I said, I'm much older now with many more days behind me than in front so I cherish every single moment with him, something I will go to my grave regretting not doing with my daughter because I learned too late in life that:
There are no forevers, only moments. So please whatever you do cherish those moments with your children with all your heart. Because that's all there is.Moments.

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…
