Memorial Day

This is the second Memorial Day in which my father in law a World War II veteran will not be here to celebrate it.

He was always proud of his service to this great country of ours. He often talked about his time down in Panama. He never saw Europe, but he was stationed in Panama. And he was injured by a mortar attack. To the day he died, he had sharpnel inside of his head. This sharpnel injured caused him to have severe headaches throughout his life.

As I sit and think of the stories he would tell. I can't help but think of the men and women who serve in our armed forces. These brave men and women have volunteered to fight for the freedom of this country. The freedom that some in Washington, D.C. are so forcefully taking away from us.

When I think of the man who was elected into the presidental office two years, I cringe. Because this man is doing more harm to the freedoms that men like my father in law gave their lives to protect.

Well, this Memorial Day as we celebrate the sacrifice of these brave men and women, let us take one more hard look at the freedom that we enjoy today. Because tomorrow those freedoms may be a thing of the past.

May God Have Mercy on this Country and Her People. Because we are certainly going to need it.

May God Bless All of Our Armed Forces All over this world. Who are fighting to uphold the freedoms that our forefathers bravely fought for.

Happy Memorial Day!

Denny Hamlin Is Proving Why He Is Someone To Challenge Johnson

Once again, Denny has pulled his number 11 FedEx Toyota Camry into victory lane. This is the third time in six races.

Hamlin is proving to everyone that he is someone who is going to seriously challenge Jimmie Johnson and the 48 team for the championship. At the rate Hamlin is going he is going to be the one to beat for the championship, not Johnson.

Every since NASCAR went to the new spoiler, Johnson has not won a race. While Hamlin has gotten all of his wins with the new spoiler. So I guess we can speculate, that the wing was an aide to Johnson, while he spoiler seems to be the equalizer for Hamlin.

And what is much more impressive is that he is doing this while recovering from surgery on his right knee. Now I know that this is probably a great incentive for Hamlin to do well. He messed up his knee while playing basketball on his own time. So maybe this is his way of telling the team, that I am going to give 110% while I recover. Since I made a dumb mistake.

I am not going to let this team suffer for my mistake.

And often times, when a mistake like this is made, some drivers do perform better, while others just fall by the wayside. Hamlin is showing the talent that Joe and J.D. Gibbs knew that he had when they hired him back in 2003. And he is really maturing into the team leader.

Hamlin, keep it up. And you and your team will be sitting at the head table on Banquet night in December.

Congratulations on another great win!
