"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

Fire on My Mountain

It is being called the Benson Fire and it is in the Lincoln National Forest three miles from Sunspot Observatory.

I didn't realize you were that close to Benson. I go through when I drive home to Texas from where I live now in Socal. Hope they get it under control soon. Will definitely pray. Take care.

Would your son be involved in fighting this kind of fire?

Praying that this will be under control and put out quickly.

Patti-fire contained. It was started(with early info) by campers, but official data not released.

Deanna-my son's volunteer department did go to the fire, but my son was working at his full time fire department job therefore did not go! Praying always for the firefighters!
