Happy Birthday, young Jedi Knight!

"Micah, turn to the Dark Side
and together we will rule this birthday!"

Happy Eleventh Birthday, Micah. I was just remembering the other day how we used to sword fight in the big bed with our light sabers from, Kings Island. Mine was red and yours was green. I'll never forget one time when you looked at and in your best, Darth Vader voice, "Daddy, I'm your father." I laughed so hard tears were running down my face. Thank you so much for the many smiles you put upon my face and the countless times you filled my heart with joy. Have a wonderful day, son.

As always, give your momma a hug for me and tell her I love her. I love you both with all my heart and always will.

Happy birthday, Big Boy!

Happy Birthday from, Hellboy!

Happy tenth Birthday, son! Do you still remember when you and I used to watch Hellboy movies and share Oreo snacks? We'd sit side by side in our chairs watching movies, enjoying milk and cookies and it was so good. I haven't forgotten and I never will.

I love you so very much and I miss you. Have a great birthday, hug your momma for me and tell her I love her.

See you next year?

I hope you know how much I love you. You were always my greatest joy, Micah. I hope you have a fantastic birthday today. Please give mom a big hug and tell her I love her.

Are you playing any sports yet? Do you have a cool bicycle yet? Gosh I sure do miss you.

Have a great birthday!

Nine years old, wow!

Another birthday? Already?

Happy Seventh Birthday!

When did you start growing up so fast? What is it now, third grade now? I hope you're doing good in school. My favorite subject in school was reading. Books are so wonderful and you can learn all kinds of cool stuff from them. I hope you like reading too.

Have a great birthday. Tell your mother I love her and give her an extra big hug for me this year, will you?

I'm so proud of you, Micah. I love and miss you like crazy! Be good?

Happy Birthday, Nugget!

Happy Sixth Birthday, Micah!

Happy Birthday! I'm so excited you'll be going into the first grade this year. Pay attention to your teachers. Be good in class. I hope you love school as much as I did. (Well, maybe a little more than I did.)

I love you so much and I'm so proud of how well you're doing. Be a good boy for momma and tell her I love her. Will you give her a hug for me? Good boy.

When we walked in fields of gold...

What profit a nation to gain the world...

Throughout the course of  human history there have come moments where even the greatest of nations have allowed the darkest sides of their ideological nature to rise to the surface of their national identity and subsequently become sources of great evil in the world.  Even the the brightest of shinning lights upon the hill have experienced these moments of darkness.  More often than not these moments of darkness come upon a nation when wealth and power become concentrated in the hands of too few people.  Those individuals then become more focused upon what is good for their own personal interests and fortunes rather than what is best for a nation and it's people.

Unfortunately our nation is currently suffering through one of these periods of national neurosis.  Our nation's wealth and political power have become concentrated in too few hands.  Protecting their individual hoard of wealth and political influence has become more important to these handful of men than the greater good of our once great nation and it's once proud and noble people.  On a daily basis they sacrifice what is good and decent for what is profitable at all costs.  In collusion with the investment bankers of Wall Street this small group of men have perpetrated a great evil upon the global economy. 

Around the globe more and more countries are falling into economic ruins thanks to the morally bankrupt practices of the investment bankers of Wall Street and a handful of equally immoral individuals who have chosen individual wealth over the greater good of humanity.  Using deceptive practices ranging from predatory loans, mortgage bundling and arcane and obscure derivatives the investment bankers sold the world a bogus bill of goods that produced profit for no one but the sharks of Wall Street.  Although these irresponsible wealth addicts are not responsible for all of the economic ills of the world at this moment, they do bear a great amount of responsibility for causing the global economic house of cards to begin collapsing.

Love of wealth has distorted the moral fiber of a number of individuals in this country and unfortunately the amount of influence they currently wield because of their wealth, has subsequently perverted the national identity of our country.  These self obsessed individuals are spending large sums of money attempting to convince the rest of the general populace that what is best for them is what is best for us and everyone else in the world.  They are wrong.  Wealth and the protection of it is not what makes a nation great.  Compassion for humanity and fairness in all our actions towards our fellow man is what makes a nation a shining light on the hill.  We are a broken light shedding nothing but darkness right now.  We have lost our way upon the path of righteousness and it is time to call for repentance from those who have led the majority of us to the brink of financial ruin.  The one percent are wrong.  Wealth is not the answer to every problem. 

Compassion, caring and love of our fellow man is the answer to the problems we face as a global community today.  If the one percent need an idea for how to spend their wealth perhaps they should follow the example set long ago by the good Samaritan.  Instead of laughing at the poor and downtrodden around them they should follow the Samaritan's example and use their wealth to lift up and heal the wounded of the world.  The truth is that wealth hoarded destroys far more people than it helps.  The one percent are not the answer to our problems as a society right now, they are the cause of the problems.  Let's pray they wise up before their greed brings ruin to us all.
