I am currently on activce duty for the next few weeks. I am at Port Huneme in Oxnard CA. and we have been getting ready to head up to Fort Hunter Liggett/Camp Roberts for our Ultra Fex. The good news is that I get to come right back to Port Huneme on Sunday so I can attend a class for a three days and then head back up north. I am looking forward to the 26th of this month as it is my 40th birthday and I get the oportunity to spend it with my Brother, Sisters, Mom, Wife and Son and all my neices and nephews, and I get the chance to meet an Uncle who was given up for adoption and I have never gotten to meet, so it will be pretty cool. Unfortunetly for every good there is bad and in this case a very dear friend of mine has sufered a terible loss. "T" is a nurse and at one time cared for a young child who was born with sever heart issues, for five years she cared fo this young man and watched him grow. This morning she received a call that he had passed away. Robert made it 13 years on this earth and now has left to what I believe will be a place where he doesn't have to worry about the pains that he has endured. But my thoughts and prayers go out for his family and I am sorry for their loss.
The world continues to move and there is trouble all over the damn place. It seems that everyone bitches about everyone else and how violent they are but it is perfectly ok for them to act like complete barbarians, go figure. We have warlords in Somalia sending out "pirates" to take over ships and hold them for ransom, sometimes killing crew members, then when they get their asses handed to them they scream foul and tell how they are going to retaliate for being persicuted. Now where I am from if you start a fight and get your ass kicked the right thing to do is shut your fucking mouth and buy a beer for the guy who just showed you that you aren't the toughest kid on the block. North Korea has gone from developing Nukes to developing rockets that can reach US soil to now stooping as low as what I consider kidnapping. By arresting and prosicuting the two american journalists it shows that this country has absolutly no regard to international politics and is by far the most dangerous country out there.
Iraq has held it's elections and now the world waits, who will be in power and whoever it is will they have the strength or even the deisre to take on the radical clerics that truly run that region.
That is all I have the desire to write tonigh. I hope all is well with everyone, always remember to do random acts of kindness, pay it forward is you will, love laugh and live. Smile, compliment someone who you don't know and remember this is not our world we are just borowing it for a limited time.
Love, Peace and Chicken Grease :)
