    The Real Meaning of Memorial Day - Prayer for Our Troops - Prayer for America

    in Politics

    The Real Meaning and History of Decoration Day - Memoral Day


    As I look around, it is very apparent too many Americans have forgotten (or were never taught) the real meaning and history of Memorial Day.


    "Decoration Day" now known as "Memorial Day" had absolutely nothing to do with Mattress Sales or BBQ cook-outs.


    Memorial Day originally called "Decoration Day" due to the practice of decorating graves of soldiers. It is a day of remembrance for those who have died serving America.


    Memorial Day was started by former slaves on May, 1, 1865 in Charleston, SC to honor 257 dead Union Soldiers who had been buried in a mass grave in a Confederate prison camp. They dug up the bodies and worked for 2 weeks to give them a proper burial as gratitude for fighting for their freedom. They then held a parade of 10,000 people led by 2,800 Black children where they marched, sang and celebrated.   www.snopes.com/military/memorialday


    Three years after the Civil War ended, on May 5, 1868, the head of an organization of Union veterans — the Grand Army of the Republic (GAR) — established Decoration Day as a time for the nation to decorate the graves of the war dead with flowers. Maj. Gen. John A. Logan declared that Decoration Day should be observed on May 30. It is believed that date was chosen because flowers would be in bloom all over the country.  http://www.va.gov/opa/speceven/memday/history.asp

    Cause of Poverty and Lifting People Out of Poverty

    in Politics

    Poverty is caused by too much of the past being recalled and craved for by those who made the biggest mistakes of the past. Wealth is used against people as power to do what they want, when they want, to whom they want. Wealth is not power. Not in Gods eyesight. Wealth seems to be the power too many people we call working class, or working poor, or middle class seem to bow to. I bow to no man. I do an honest days work for an honest days pay. I take a job at one wage. I learn your way to do the job. I learn my job and other jobs. I seek more money. I get more money because I have made myself valuable to your company. You pay me more or I'm out the door. I will not show up when you need me most. I will teach you how to treat that next person who ask you for a raise after they have shown themselves valuable and worthy of more money. Iwas raised in poverty. It was a good life because everyone around me lived as I lived. My parents did not live in a time when Americans cared more for money than for people. I learned the lessons of my parents. Today, I do not live in poverty. I have never lived in poverty as an adult. I will never live in poverty.

    DIRECTOR JACK THOMAS SMITH

    in Entertainment

    Jack Thomas Smith made his feature film-directing debut with the psychological thriller “Disorder.” He was also the writer and producer of that film. “Disorder” was released on DVD by Universal/Vivendi and New Light Entertainment. It was released on Pay-Per-View and Video-On-Demand by Warner Brothers. Overseas, it screened at the Cannes Film Festival and the Raindance Film Festival in London. Curb Entertainment represented “Disorder” for foreign sales and secured distribution deals around the world.
    Born in 1969 in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, Smith lived there until he was eight when his family relocated to a quiet island community in Michigan, which would later serve as the inspiration for his upcoming film “In the Dark.” He began to write at a very young age after reading the Stephen King novels “Salem’s Lot” and “The Shining.” By the time he was eleven, he had written a 300-page novel and a number of short stories.
    Smith’s family moved to Sparta, New Jersey when he was a teenager. It was there in that middle-class town that he discovered the films of George A. Romero, Stanley Kubrick, Brian DePalma, and John Carpenter. Inspired to make movies, he wrote and directed a handful of short films that were shot on Super 8mm and starred his brother and friends in all of the roles.
