May 26, 2014, Memorial Day
Family Is Everything!
I get discouraged when I read day after day about the destruction of the basic unit of our culture, the strong family. Most of our national problems (education, poverty and crime) can be traced to the breakdown of the strong family unit.
Then on the eve of memorial day and after attending church, I ran into a high school classmate, Joe Garbuzinski and he told me the following remarkable story.
He had just returned from a graduation ceremony at the Naval Academy at Annapolis. His twin grandsons, Zachery and Alexander Johnson, had both just graduated. They grew up in Memphis and attended Christian Brothers High School. They were top students and both were state wrestling champs.
While at the Naval Academy, they attended summer training camps for Navy seals and finished in the top 5% of those classes. Now after graduating they will enter into the notoriously difficult Navy Seal training.
Joe is very proud of these wonderful grandsons and I am thrilled at their accomplishments. Joe and I both feel that the majority of this country still loves America, thinks that America is special and that there is hope to turn the culture back to freedom, individual responsibility and love of country. With young people like Zachery and Alexander, there is cause for great hope for the future of this wonderful country.
