Whose day is it?

As we were driving south on Main yesterday, we passed a cemetary. Many cars were parked and people were milling around, some obviously looking for a particular stone, others just browsing. C, my eight-year-old, asked why so many people were there. I then explained that this is Memorial Day Weekend. "Memorial Day" (or "Decoration Day" as it was once called) was set aside as a day to remember those who gave their lives in service to this country; people place flowers at the graves of those who died in wars. Many people have; however, made it into a time to remember anyone who has died.

C thought for a moment and then asked why people have "stolen the holiday from the veterans?" I can sometimes be a rules girl (note, sometimes, Kris). And, in truth, it has bothered me a tiny bit that we can't just let the dead receive a day of recognition for dying in battle and service to this great nation. I know that people have good intentions (obviously, they are trying to honor the memory of a loved one) as my good friend Kris always tries to point out to me (and has most recently in this post). But I admit to thinking the same thing that my eight-year-old does: why not let those for whom the day was made keep it as unique to their sacrifice and let's take another of the other 358 non-major holiday days to place a wreath or bouquet in rememberance of our family members?

Baldilocks has some very good thoughts here.

What is our nation's heritage?

R and I were discussing some foundational history the other night. I proposed that this country is not, in fact, based on Judeo-Christian ethics, but on the ancient form of government first established by the Greeks and Romans: a democratic republic.

My reasons are thus:

Their mother, their mother, Alas they haven't another

When I am angry, I want to know why. I want to understand, to analyze, to dissect, take apart. I have an intense need to figure it out and then fix or adjust. I know this comes from the home in which I grew up. We were terrific pretenders: let's go to this person's house and laugh and be entertaining and make them all believe we are one happy family. We ignored anything and everything that might cause self-examination. That would be too much effort and cause too much pain. Better just to go to school everyday and lead the teachers to believe that your evening had gone perfectly: you arrived home to a snack and a parent; you played in safety with the neighborhood children until your mother or father called you in to dinner; you ate together and chatted away the whole meal. Afterwards you helped your mother clear the dishes and then your dad sat down and helped you with your homework. A few television shows shared together and lovingly tucked into bed with prayers and wishes for good sleeping completed your evening. Yeah, make 'em think that 'cause it's way harder to hear the truth: you arrive home to no snack or parent. The bus ride was hell because the boys in the back wouldn't stop teasing you with vulgar things they said or worse, demonstrated. You wander over to a neighbor's home to play and maybe see if they might have some food. You play outside hoping that your mom will come home soon because your mother's live-in has arrived there first and he'll just find some reason to kick you, pull your hair, or otherwise blame you for some calamity in the house.

Knowledge without Wisdom is Useless

This EXTP girl leads with her senses and intuition. This means that I sometimes make decisions with facts and personal experience, and other times I let my intuition decide for me.

This morning in my daily conversation with Kris we discussed that N's (those who are intuiting) and F's (those who are feelers) can sometimes justify what they think is right by feelings and thoughts or be more easily swayed by another's thoughts or feelings. This is because we are more abstract thinkers. We are the "what if"-ers of this world. Concrete thinkers are the "this has happened so this is how it is" or "the rules say so, so it must be" of the world. Apparently 60% of the nation is concrete. That leaves 40% of us abstract. I know that statistics aren't the best measure of anything, but they are all I have to go on, so I am using them.

Feelers have to be careful in their friendships or at least their understanding of them. Emily at I Don't Think once wrote a post that discussed that just because she has these virtual discussions with people, some daily, it doesn't make them her friends. For example: I may have polite encouraging discussions with people on my site, but I am not that friend and neither are they mine. When I read this, I wasn't sure what to think. My interactions as of late have helped me along with this thought. Just because we comment on one anothers blogs; just because we might e-mail occasionally, doesn't make us "friends." Now, I can name a few that I truthfully feel (intuiting) and know that were we to actually meet and be able to physically spend time together (shopping, dinners at my house, lunches out, telephone conversations) we would be "friends." So, there are some that I think of as such, but in reality, with the rest we just have similar thoughts and have a mutual enjoyment of one another's opinions. This doesn't equate to the committment of a real relationship. To R I am committed; to my children I am committed; to Kris, Eddie, Flaca, Kelli; my extended family, but not you who read my thoughts, share my political lean, like my anecdotes of family life. Quite simply: typing my personal thoughts into a program that then publishes them on the world wide web for anyone to read doesn't equal friendship, and neither does my perusal of your published diary or political diatribes mandate my devotion to you. I think sometimes people think that and I know that I have allowed myself to think the same; in fact, most recently. So, now that I have wrongly intuited and wrongly sensed, I won't be making that mistake again. It may take both to teach me, but I do retain and rarely forget a lesson learned.

Four Candles on Her Cake, Five Hearts Wrapped Up for Her

When R and I decided to have our last child, there were times I thought I was nuts. Everyone was physically able and trained to clean themselves and get their own drink and here I was starting all over again. But, I wanted to be pregnant one last time. I wanted to deliver (with a full epidural catheter stuck in my spinal column, too) one last time. I wanted to feel my breasts swell with life giving substance and sustain and grow one last child on the milk of my body. It was a delightful pregnancy and once that epidural was loaded, a perfect labor and delivery.

As we tossed around names, the fourth daughter that we conceived grew fat and healthy in the utopia of my womb. I liked Emma, R did not. He likes strong, but classic feminine names and he felt that Emma wasn't the person wiggling in my body. So, one spring evening, after children were in bed, R and I were outside. I suggested a name. His eyes lit up. "Yes, that's the name." After presenting it to the parents and the children, we all agreed. Her name means "pure one" in Greek, and that she is. She came out and immediately captured our hearts. She is sweet, thoughtful, witty, sensitive, and kind. I have frequently said that she was the perfect way to close the show. Thanks, God, for the last act.

Happy Birthday, K, from us all. We love you so very much.

To the tune of "Be Thou My Vision:"

She is so very small, Lord,
There's not much she can do.
Keep her as she grows, Lord;
May she grow in You.
She is so very small, Lord.
Only You truly know
Who she's becoming.
Lord, keep this little soul.

The Word

Language has always fascinated me. I remember first learning French songs and rhymes in pre-school. We would sit Indian-style (as it was called then) and try to understand our teacher with the beautiful silk scarves and the thick accent. During recess, we would practice counting the monkey bars, passing cars, skipping rope, anything in imitate the lovely lady with the stylish hair and clothes.

This one is loaded with facts (you know, those things that are gathered either through first-hand experience or from verifiable sources that our sad, agenda laden media doesn't seem to concern itself with anymore?) I underlined a few things that Dave said that caught my attention.

Read the last line (emphasis mine).- you gotta love Dave. And we do.

Dad -

You probably heard that Mike was wounded this week. We take rockets and mortars from time to time and he got caught outside when a rocket came in. He was lucky as he only got hit with some shrapnel in the back of the head. Grateful that it was only a flesh wound. He was medivaced to a surgical unit. I got word that he was going to be medevaced to the surgical unit on my camp and went by that evening looking for him only to find out he went to a different treatment facility. They put some staples in his head and he hopped a helo to return to his camp and was back at work that night. He is a tough guy. In fact, I actually saw him yesterday as I had to go to his position for some business. It is always a quietly thankful moment when you see a guy who has been wounded or who you think was wounded and he turns out to be ok. Mike was actually embarrassed about the whole thing and shrugged off any mention of it as he feels like he is not "doing enough" right now.

I Feel like a Woman (fake, albeit)

For someone who loathes pretention, I must protray it quite severely. I have been asked in the last three months if several things on my body are fake.

1)No, my hair is my own. I do not have extensions. I would get extensions if my hair were short and I wanted longer hair, but this is my own, home-grown stuff. Thank you. I think.

2)My fingernails are my own. I used to be a chronic biter (blush). I always hated my hands and my nails. Bitten nails are extremely unfeminine, in my opinion. Once, while reading an article about Ol' Blue Eyes, I noted that Frank said the first thing he noticed about a woman was her hands. He liked a nice set of gams, but a pair of well-manicured nails and soft hands really did it for him. There was a time when I got acrylics and tips, but I decided to shoot for healthy nails and a fatter pocketbook. Plus, I just couldn't stand the feeling of those big fat thick things. I needed to be able to get my hands dirty and clean. Thanks to Nailtiques, I have a set of natural nails that are strong and apparently quite attractive, I think.

3)No, those aren't fake either. It is astonishing to me that anyone would think these are false. They have a very natural shape and aren't sitting right under my chin. Nor are they excessively large; I don't think. I am not sure if this is meant to be complimentary, so thank you?

Rose Colored Glasses

As I slowed down to allow the recommended five car lengths between me and the car that pulled out in front of me (even though I was the only automobile on the road and said other car could have allowed me to pass by and then decide to whip out quickly and slow down immediately to fifteen miles under the posted speed limit after I had driven by-where was this person going that demanded instant entry to the two- lane state highway, but as soon as entrance was accomplished, negated the pressing need?), I began to wonder what things I do that annoy other people. I mean there are a few habits in others that I find challenging to tolerate, but what do others over-look in me?

Lying Liars and the Lies They Tell (aka Liberal Lying Media)

R received this from Dave's dad just a few moments ago. You simply must read it. Must. The emphasis is my own.

The enclosed is from Captain Ben Connable, the intelligence deputy for the US 1st Marine Division, in charge of the western al-Anbar province. Something recent and encouraging, for a change. It came in this morning.

From: Ben Connable
Subject: Reorienting and Driving Forward

As you all probably know by now, we are turning Fallujah over to the Iraqis. This will give us an opportunity to focus on other areas, and hopefully to build a new Iraqi Army with some of the folks that are feeling alienated right now. We're all painfully aware of the various issues associated with this move, but there's no point in discussing them. We'll make this work, just like we make everything else work to the best of our ability. The Marines fought hard in Fallujah and took a lot of very evil people out of the fight. That effort, and the associated loss of Marine lives, was not in vain. We're already seeing a significant decrease in the enemy's ability to attack our forces. The supply lines are open again and everything is flowing freely through the country. Their efforts to cut us of in order to break our willpower failed. The Iraqi people are tired of the enemy and they are turning them over to us left and right.

I'm going to discuss a subject that I know does not apply to most of you... We're reading that everyone back home is starting to lose faith in our efforts in Iraq. The last CBS poll put the numbers under 50% for the first time. I know that doesn't mean a loss in support for the troops, but supporting "the troops" while not supporting the mission doesn't do much for us. If we're over here for nothing then vague "support the troops" statements carry little weight. The Marines are in high spirits. The troops in Fallujah are doing what Marines do best, and they're true professionals. Everyone else is driving forward, wondering what all the fuss back home is all about. We don't feel that we're losing anything - in fact, we're finally addressing issues that should have been addressed some time ago. The world seems to have forgotten what war looks like. It's not supposed to be pretty and happy. Force is used to kill those who are perpetrating evil on the people of Iraq. The images need to be put in perspective, something the news agencies just don't have time for.

It would be interesting to see someone track all the dire accounts and predictions that were issued over the past three weeks to see if they've been accurate. I read reports that we were cut off and couldn't get supplies. Reality: Not true, they failed. A popular revolution was taking place in the south and Sadr was leading a new Shia revolt. Reality: Not true. Shia militia are killing Sadr's folks in Najaf because they don't respect him and they're sick of him. He's the same buffoon he was last month. Fallujah would ignite the Arab world (how many times have we heard that one). Reality: Despite the best efforts of Al-Jazira to make us look like Atilla the Hun, there has been no explosion of populist anger. The same problems exist that existed last month - no better, no worse.

Please pass the word that we're doing great and the Marines are victorious in every battle. The enemy is a disconcerted, disparate group of disenfranchised dissemblers who have little power outside the realm of localized intimidation and the support of complicit al-Jazira reporters. We will be able to settle this place down and help the Iraqi people back on their feet if we're able to ignore the hysteria on T.V. and recall the national willpower we had in the 1940's. What happened to our country? Have we really become so addled and weak-willed that we can't stick something out through a little rough patch?

I have faith that we'll get the backing we need to finish our work in Iraq.

Please have that faith with me and support our mission as much as you support our Marines.

Semper Fidelis -

Ben

I simply don't know what to say.

I watched most of the video last night (against my better judgement), but began to wretch towards the end and had to leave the computer to be sick.

It is unfathomable to me to be Nick Berg's family. I am only his lowly fellow countrymen and my heart is desperately ill within me.

I don't know that they will experience it in this life, but I pray for the comfort of this family.

I will say that my soul rages against these who committed this heinous atrocity; against the media who, without conscience, keep ravaging the hearts of Mr. Berg's family like wild dogs by playing over and over and over and over the video of his murder; against the people who are so brainwashed that they truly believe this to have been acceptable in the eyes of God. My only hope and assurance is that they will be held accountable someday by the Great God of Heaven, the One and Only. I wonder if Nick Berg's screams will pass through their minds as they beg for mercy before the Most High Judge of all men. Perhaps they will be confused as to why there are no virgins there to offer themselves as trophies for their "victory" but only the wrath of an angry God? Much to their confusion, they will see God Himself, wipe away the tears of anguish from the eyes of the woman who bore him and sweetly held his hand on his first day of school and the father who spoke lovingly to his son while still in his mother's womb and threw a baseball with his boy in the sun of a Pennsylvannia evening and the siblings who shared a sandbox, the secrets of one another's hearts, the dreams of life together.

May God comfort the Berg family and may God rest the soul of Nick Berg.

Hoping to be Worthy of the Call

Sometimes, after a tough day, I wonder why I ever thought that I could be a mother-...a good mother. I seek solace and a place to lick my wounds. Unsure if they are self-inflicted, I go over the battle scene in my mind. I do my best, I try to be consistent; encouraging; solid; tender; kind; empathetic. Occasionally, I am tired and hormonal. I pass out verbal warning cards that beg forgiveness in advance of the coming doom.

The Execution of the Patrol: Major Bellon

Dad -

We executed the patrol yesterday - suspect that you have seen that on the news. Couldn't tell you last night for security reasons. The patrol went well. Interesting information that you probably did not see on the news: When the Iraqis came in to link up with us, they were very stoic. In fact, I had a pistol that I had to give to the leader of the Iraqi contingent today. I wanted to make it public in front of his men but he appeared very awkward. He only touched the pistol briefly and quickly gave it to his aid. The rest of the Iraqis looked somewhat hostile/worried. Frankly, I did not know what to make of it.

Shortly before the patrol stepped off, my element moved to our forward location and held fast. As we moved the short distance to our staging area, I was mulling over what may have been behind the Iraqi reaction. As I was looking around it dawned on me. We had Marines staged as a QRF (Quick Reaction Force) very near the area that the Iraqis came to link up with us but out of view of the city. The Marines all had their game face on and it was a very strong force. My guess is that when the Iraqis cleared the cloverleaf and saw our guys their hearts must have skipped a beat. The enemy was spreading disinformation that the patrol was a trick and that we were really going to attack. Remember what I said about the ignorance level and the rampant rumors here.

When the patrol exited the city and the Iraqis came back through our lines, they were literally chanting and singing. Their pride was evident.

There will be good days and not so good days. Today was a good day.

Love,

Dave

A Short Story Long on Meaning

A couple of years ago, while driving home from some weekend trip, I scanned the channels on the radio. The clearest one was a "weekend edition" of some Christian broadcast. Several women were sharing the pain of their decision to abort. They all regreted it and desperately wished that they wouldn't have made the choice that they did.

All of the stories were touching. One story that is very familiar to me, I will share.

Sow What You Reap

One of my favorite things to do is to reward my children's labor. They receive an allowance; one dollar per year old they are per month. We don't give money for chores, but we do take away percentages of allowances if chores aren't done before breakfast, without prompting or whining and complaining.

When they go beyond what is required, we pay them extra. They divide their money into three catagories: save, spend, and give. They purchase all birthday gifts, Christmas gifts, etc. themselves. We give them an allotment of $360 a year for clothes. I buy their jeans, undies and socks, and shoes. They must select tops, skirts, dresses, and any accesories themselves.

My mother did none of this for me and how I wish she had. Let's just say

E and A and I watched A Knight's Tale last night, erm, I mean, early, early this morning. After the film ended, I walked upstairs to find them both in my bed, feigning sleep. The art of laying a good hint is wanting in them. A dramatic sigh escaped from my lips. I slipped in between them and the lamp was turned off. You see, I simply couldn't refuse them the comfort of their mother's presence tonight, nor my own of their corporeal sweetness.
