"You cannot legislate the poor into freedom by legislating the wealthy out of freedom. What one person receives without working for, another person must work for without receiving. The government cannot give to anybody anything that the government does not first take from somebody else. When half of the people get the idea that they do not have to work because the other half is going to take care of them, and when the other half gets the idea that it does no good to work because somebody else is going to get what they work for, that my dear friend, is about the end of any nation.

You cannot multiply wealth by dividing it."
Dr. Adrian Rogers 1931-2005

43 Years Ago Today

My dad was killed in Vietnam. I wrote about it a few years ago on one of my other blogs, here.

**update on the above post: two more great grandchildren have been born, Samuel Max, and Kayden Joshua.

I'm so sorry you never did get to know your dad. I know how close I am to mine - always been a daddy's girl.

In another way, tho, you are still a "daddy's girl" for you've had the best Father a girl can have. Bless you this day while you remember. Hugs - Vickie
