Full of Grace - Sarah McLachlan The winter here's cold, and bitter It's chilled us to the bone We haven't seen the sun for weeks Too long too far from home I feel just like I'm sinking And I claw for solid ground Pulled down by the undertow I never thought I could feel so low Oh darkness I feel like letting go If all of the strength and all of the courage Come and lift me from this place I know I could love you much better than this Full of grace Full of grace My love So its better this way, I said Having seen this place before Where everything we said and did Hurts us all the more It's just that we stayed, too long In the same old sickly skin Pulled down by the undertow I never thought I could feel so low Oh darkness I feel like letting go If all of the strength And all of the courage Come and lift me from this place I know I could love you much better than this Full of grace Full of grace My love

Quotes from the video: "We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness." Declaration of Independence "If the white man wants to live in peace with the Indian, he can live in peace. ... Treat all men alike. Give them all the same law. Give them all an even chance to live and grow. All men were made by the same Great Spirit Chief. They are all brothers. The Earth is the mother of all people, and all people should have equal rights upon it. ... Let me be a free man, free to travel, free to stop, free to work, free to trade ... where I choose my own teachers, free to follow the religion of my fathers, free to think and talk and act for myself, and I will obey every law, or submit to the penalty." ... Chief Joseph * Hin-mah-too-yah-lat-kekt (Nez Perces' Tribe); (1840-1904) "Our progress in degeneracy appears to me to be pretty rapid. As a nation we began by declaring that 'all men are created equal.' When the Know-Nothings get control, it will read ' all men are created equal, except Negroes and foreigners and Catholics.' When it comes to this, I shall prefer emigrating to some country where they make no pretense of loving liberty -- to Russia, for instance, where despotism can be taken pure, and without the base alloy hypocrisy." President Lincoln (1861-65) "We the People of the United States, in Order to form a more perfect Union, establish Justice, ensure domestic Tranquility, provide for the common defence, promote the general Welfare, and secure the Blessings of Liberty to ourselves and our Posterity, do ordain and establish this Constitution for the United States of America." (1787) "I have a dream that my four little children will one day live in a nation where they will not be judged by the color of their skin, but by the content of their character. " Martin Luther King Jr. (1929-68) "The glory of this land has been its capacity for transcending the moral evils of our past. For example, the long struggle of minority citizens for equal rights, once a source of disunity and civil war, is now a point of pride for all Americans. We must never go back. There is no room for racism, anti-Semitism, or other forms of ethnic and racial hatred in this country." President Reagan (1981-89) ***** God Bless America is generally accepted as our unofficial National Anthem. Written by Irving Berlin, a first generation European immigrant of Jewish heritage, Berlin's simple and eloquent song was first introduced by Kate Smith during an Armistice Day radio broadcast in 1938. Berlin gave the royalties of the song to the God Bless America Fund for redistribution to the Boy Scouts and Girl Scouts of the USA. On September 21, 2001, Celine Dion, a Canadian, performed the song on the TV special America: A Tribute to Heroes; a memorial show to those lost on 9/11. I have rarely heard a more heart-felt or beautiful rendition than hers. The mix of first generation immigrant, and respectful foreigner, give tribute to our land of the brave and home of the free. Included are memorable quotes from our country's leaders demonstrating how far we have come as a great nation ... in my humble opinion, the greatest nation! The nation that many around the world continue to dream of immigrating to - because of the very ideology we strive towards. Not usually included is the spoken introduction to the song: While the storm clouds gather far across the sea, Let us swear allegiance to a land that's free, Let us all be grateful for a land so fair, As we raise our voices in a solemn prayer. God bless America, land that I love Stand beside her and guide her Through the night with the light from above From the mountains To the prairies, To the ocean white with foam God bless America, My home sweet home. There are many who would destroy this place we have fought so hard to safe-guard. I have friends who live in countries where they cannot even draw a cartoon, or speak in humor or protest against their sovereigns, which has given me an even deeper appreciation for the rights and liberties we hold self evident. Being a patriot does not mean we can't question those in authority ... in fact ... we'd be less than patriotic if we didn't. Thank God, I live in a country I can do just that. We have traversed the bigotries and rhetoric of generations past ... and the past need be learned from as not to be repeated. It (the pain and moral evils) also need be put to rest in order that a great nation can continue to move forward with it's manifest destiny. My heritage in America includes Cherokee, as well as British, Irish, German, Dutch and others, who immigrated here searching for liberty and the prosperity they could not find in their homelands. I am proud to be an American!

Are we doing what we should ... when it's all been said and done, did we live our lives for truth ... our example walked among us ... taught us ... and gave us the answers ... and all the answers involve the great truth and that Word, the very essence and mission was and is Love. The video includes film from the Visual Bible, book of Matthew, excerpts from chapters 5-8; Jesus teaches Love, forgiveness, and how to pray. Our Father, in heaven, Hallowed be thy name, Thy kingdom come, Thy will be done, on earth as it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread, and forgive us our trespasses, as we forgive those who trespass against us. And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from the evil one.

It is a day when women are recognized for their achievements without regard to divisions, whether national, ethnic, linguistic, cultural, economic or political. It is an occasion for looking back on past struggles and accomplishments, and more importantly, for looking ahead to the untapped potential and opportunities that await future generations of women. In 1975, during International Women's Year, the United Nations began celebrating International Womens Day on 8 March. Two years later, in December 1977, the General Assembly adopted a resolution proclaiming a United Nations Day for Women's Rights and International Peace to be observed on any day of the year by Member States, in accordance with their historical and national traditions. In adopting its resolution, the General Assembly recognized the role of women in peace efforts and development and urged an end to discrimination and an increase of support for womens full and equal participation. History International Womens Day first emerged from the activities of labour movements at the turn of the twentieth century in North America and across Europe. 1909: The first National Woman's Day was observed in the United States on 28 February. The Socialist Party of America designated this day in honour of the 1908 garment workers strike in New York, where women protested against working conditions. 1910: The Socialist International, meeting in Copenhagen, established a Women's Day, international in character, to honour the movement for women's rights and to build support for achieving universal suffrage for women. The proposal was greeted with unanimous approval by the conference of over 100 women from 17 countries, which included the first three women elected to the Finnish Parliament. No fixed date was selected for the observance. ..." "The Charter of the United Nations, signed in 1945, was the first international agreement to affirm the principle of equality between women and men. Since then, the UN has helped create a historic legacy of internationally-agreed strategies, standards, programes and goals to advance the status of women worldwide. Over the years, the UN and its technical agencies have promoted the participation of women as equal partners with men in achieving sustainable development, peace, security, and full respect for human rights. The empowerment of women continues to be a central feature of the UNs efforts to address social, economic and political challenges across the globe. ...

That fly all over town in the sky. This world used to bring me down until now. I fly. I dream I sleep upon the clouds. So warm as I wrap the cotton blanket around. This world couldn't really bring me down now. Cause I fly. And you have made my life. Yes, you and I will never die. I dream Jesus takes me to the Father. And I kneel before Him with humble heart. This world doesn't bring me down anymore. Cause I fly. And He has made my life. Yes, He gave me, you and I. Is there more I could ask for? Is there something I'm missing? Why doesn't everyone feel the same as me? Is there something I'm blessed for? What am I missing? Cause I dream I have angel's wings. And I fly all over town in the sky. This world used to bring me down until now. I fly fly fly fly fly. I fly fly fly fly fly. fly fly fly fly "I Believe I Can Fly" I used to think that I could not go on And life was nothing but an awful song But now I know the meaning of true love I'm leaning on the everlasting arms If I can see it, then I can do it If I just believe it, there's nothing to it  I believe I can fly I believe I can touch the sky I think about it every night and day Spread my wings and fly away I believe I can soar I see me running through that open door I believe I can fly I believe I can fly I believe I can fly See I was on the verge of breaking down Sometimes silence can seem so loud There are miracles in life I must achieve But first I know it starts inside of me, oh If I can see it, then I can do it If I just believe it, there's nothing to it [Repeat 1] Hey, cause I believe in me, oh If I can see it, then I can be it If I just believe it, there's nothing to it [Repeat 1] Hey, if I just spread my wings I can fly I can fly I can fly, hey If I just spread my wings I can fly Fly ...

One of the most poignant videos I've seen on You Tube. War rips apart the hearts of mankind and sorrows replace what most think brave -- there are never any real winners in the end, only sadness and yet another "generation drenched in hate". "A coward is incapable of exhibiting love; it is the prerogative of the brave." ... Mahatma Gandhi This video is the original creation made by Lori Weasley and is reposted with her permission. The song is No Bravery by James Blunt. No Bravery by James Blunt There are children standing here, Arms outstretched into the sky, Tears drying on their face. He has been here. Brothers lie in shallow graves. Fathers lost without a trace. A nation blind to their disgrace, Since he's been here. And I see no bravery, No bravery in your eyes anymore. Only sadness. Houses burnt beyond repair. The smell of death is in the air. A woman weeping in despair says, He has been here. Tracer lighting up the sky. It's another families' turn to die. A child afraid to even cry out says, He has been here. And I see no bravery, No bravery in your eyes anymore. Only sadness. There are children standing here, Arms outstretched into the sky, But no one asks the question why, He has been here. Old men kneel to accept their fate. Wives and daughters cut and raped. A generation drenched in hate. Says, he has been here. And I see no bravery, No bravery in your eyes anymore. Only sadness.

This video is not all encompassing regarding the signs and symptoms of borderline and/or narcissistic personality disorders. It would be recommended those interested in learning more about the disorder(s), and/or getting counseling, check out the various websites: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dialectical_behavioral_therapy http://www.dbtselfhelp.com/ http://www.psychologytoday.com/conditions/narcissistic.html http://www.halcyon.com/jmashmun/npd/traits.html http://www.borderlinepersonality.ca/bordernonhelpbpd.htm There are currently 10 conditions that are considered personality disorders, some of which have very little in common. Mental health professionals group those personality disorders that share characteristics into one of three clusters: Cluster A Personality Disorders are those considered to be marked by odd, eccentric behavior. Paranoid, Schizoid and Schizotypal Personality Disorders are in this category. Cluster B Personality Disorders are evidenced by dramatic, erratic behaviors and include Histrionic, Narcissistic, Antisocial and Borderline Personality Disorders. Cluster C Personality Disorders are distinguished by the anxious, fearful behavior commonly seen in Obsessive-Compulsive, Avoidant and Dependent Personality Disorders. Please do not confuse BPD/NPD, which both fit into a like cluster of signs and symptoms, with PTSD, or other disorders, a study I will be posting a separate video of signs and symptoms on. This video requires attention to detail and reading through ... you may want to watch it more than once to fully appreciate the backdrop of music from the Phantom of the Opera (Masquerade and Phantom of the Opera songs). If you are a non-BPD/NPD, this video holds important actions and understanding. Non-BPDs are often fully enveloped by the abuse from the BPD and/or NPD before they ever recognize what hit them. I hope this will help to alleviate that feeling of you losing your mind and recognize that bottom line solutions often times include a stand involving tough love. Don't allow your own sense of empathy and good heart to be victimized by a BPD and/or NPD. If you are a BPD and/or NPD, or in the mode of trying to self-assess, please remember that this video is not all encompassing, and you should seek professional counseling for a unbiased and specific diagnosis pertinent to your particular signs and symptoms. You can find help and change if you want to. Regardless if you are the Non, or the BPD, I hope you will find some solace in viewing this film/information.

PLEASE READ ALL OF THIS CAREFULLY ... ... see this moment in history as they saw it. Not a moment of terror, but a moment of strength! When good men did great things. Tens of thousands were saved by simple acts of courage. ... (Robert De Niro) This tribute is intended to honor all who perished, all those who survived, and all those who served at Ground Hero, on and after the days of the attacks on the United States, as well as all those who continue to serve in emergency services. I will always consider New York my first home. That wondrous place of my youth and early adulthood. That home of many of my ancestors who settled there as farmers and merchants in the 1600s who gazed with hope eternal over that place later known as the World Trade Center. I'm sure they weep with us still. These videos (Parts 1 and mostly in part 2) contain photographs I took and also include some taken by Chaplain Dan Chapman, who, along with so many others that responded from around the country, and around the world, devoted their time and spirit to helping in ways that go beyond being expressed in words. I will not allow conspiracy theorists, political mockers, or hate mongers to disgrace the memory of those who perished on 9/11. This is not the forum to discuss such theories - there are plenty of other videos for such vents; therefore, please be respectful and view this as the remembrance it is intended as. All inappropriate comments, as outlined above, will be promptly removed.

Having been the fly caught in the web of someone with Narcissistic Personality Disorder (NPD), and made to suffer the effects of the skewed perceptions and emotional immaturity predominant therein, I think Doug's lyrics hit the mark from the NPD's view. NPD's can destroy what their victims believe to be a genuine friendship and/or romance, along with the ability to trust another person again. Don't allow your own sense of empathy and caring blindside you to what your own instincts may be revealing to you. The NPD needs help - and only the NPD can acknowledge and therein seek that help. Sometimes, all you can do, is exercise tough love and walk away from the relationship. Original music by Doug Payne, aka, coomadoug (To listen to more of Doug's original tunes on You Tube check out his channel "coomadoug" and/or visit http://cdbaby.com/cd/dougpayne) What Makes a Narcissist Tick - Comment on a Modern Plague I hide I can not relate I put on a face and I shut the gate. I wont confide. I can not debate. I wont decide. I procrastinate. You cant reach my soul. It's in a deep dark hole and if you love me too well, I'll make your life hell. So well I've lived this lie. No one can tell. Not even I. My baby's got the right to ask, but i wont stop and take off the mask. She cant reach my soul. It's in a deep dark hole and if she jumps in this well I'll ,ale her life hell. If someone dare to touch my heart show they care the trouble will sart. My greatest fear are her loving eyes and tender hands over my disguise. You cant reach my soul. It's in a deep lonely hole and if you jump in this well I'll make your life hell. I'd like to feel with you. To laugh and cry and see things through We would have it made if I would end this sharade. I can't reach my soul It's in a deep dark hole and if you jump in this well I'll make your live hell. If you jump in this well Ill make your life hell.

This video pays tribute to the surviving 99 (86) Medal of Honor recipients. It need be noted that on October 6, 2010, the first living recipient since the Vietnam war was honored at the White House. SSG Salvatore Giunta, who is assigned to 2nd Battalion, 503rd Infantry Regiment, 173rd Airborne Brigade Combat Team, for service in Afghanistan. To learn more, please check the links here or do a simple search on his name. This video was created October 21, 2008. At that time there were 99 living recipients of the MoH. As of January 1, 2010, there were 91 living Medal of Honor recipients. Annotations added as applicable. NOTE: Annotations will be added for those deceased since the creation of this video. The earliest living survivor is from WWII. All MoH recipients from campaigns after Vietnam, to date, were awarded posthumously. It matters not what your political views are when it comes to the valor that these courageous persons so earned and deserve. With this in mind, no politically pointed viewpoints, nor hate-monger formed comments will be permitted; and will be promptly removed.

This tribute is to my Uncle, Truman E. Thomas, who was killed in action in WWII. In essence, it is a tribute to all those who have served our country throughout the generations. This video revolves around Truman's service in the Big Red One and excerpts from V-Mail letters to his sister Thelma Thomas Hicks. Truman was one of four brothers (my father being one of them), who served in the war. Music contained in this video: 1. Live This Life, by Big & Rich 2. I Believe, by Diamond Rio 3. Whiter Than Snow, by Josiah Thomas (father of Truman, and my grandfather, whose bluegrass down root Kentucky singing has been preserved and shared, thanks to my Uncle John Thomas). There are many others in my family who have served our country and I am proud of each and every one of them. As noted, the excerpts contained in this video were written by Truman to his sister, Thelma. Thanks to Thelma, who has since passed away, and her son, Gary Hicks, these letters are preserved for future generations. The word, "Jerry", used in the correspondence was a term used to refer to Nazi enemy soldiers.

PLEASE READ ALL OF THIS CAREFULLY ... ... see this moment in history as they saw it. Not a moment of terror, but a moment of strength! When good men did great things. Tens of thousands were saved by simple acts of courage. ... (Robert De Niro) This tribute is intended to honor all who perished, all those who survived, and all those who served at Ground Hero, on and after the days of the attacks on the United States, as well as all those who continue to serve in emergency services. I will always consider New York my first home. That wondrous place of my youth and early adulthood. That home of many of my ancestors who settled there as farmers and merchants in the 1600s who gazed with hope eternal over that place later known as the World Trade Center. I'm sure they weep with us still. These videos (Parts 1 and 2) contain photographs I took and also include some taken by Chaplain Dan Chapman, who, along with so many others that responded from around the country, and around the world, devoted their time and spirit to helping in ways that go beyond being expressed in words. I will not allow conspiracy theorists, political mockers, or hate mongers to disgrace the memory of those who perished on 9/11. This is not the forum to discuss such theories - there are plenty of other videos for such vents; therefore, please be respectful and view this as the remembrance it is intended as. All inappropriate comments, as outlined above, will be promptly removed.

This video outlines some of the causes, signs and symptoms of Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD). PTSD, when gone untreated, can lead to such extremes as suicide. If you, or someone you love, suffer from PTSD, or suspected PTSD, please see a counselor. There are many on-line sites that can be researched for further information. You may also want to check at Medicine Net: http://www.medicinenet.com/posttraumatic_stress_disorder/article.htm http://firefighterveteran.com/ WARNING: This video includes graphic images from (1) Oklahoma City Bombing; (2) World Trade Center Attacks; (3) Omaha Beach, WWII; (4) Hue City, Vietnam War; and (5) a Police Officer Funeral. The end message is one of hope. Those suffering from PTSD come from a variety of causes, including rape, combat, disasters - both natural and man made, and more. The music is Ghosts, by Dan Fogelberg: Sometimes in the night I feel it Near as my next breath and yet, untouchable Silently the past comes stealing Like the taste of some forbidden sweet. Along the walls; in shadowed rafters Moving like a thought through haunted atmospheres Muted cries and echoed laughter Banished dreams that never sank in sleep. Lost in love and Found in reason Questions that the mind can find no answers for Ghostly eyes Conspire treason As they gather just outside the door.... Every ghost that calls upon us Brings another measure in the mystery Death is there To keep us honest And constantly remind us we are free. Down the ancient corridors And through the gates of time Run the ghosts of days That we left behind. Down the ancient corridors And through the gates of time Run the ghosts of dreams That we left behind. Sometimes in the night I feel it Near as my next breath and yet, untouchable Silently the past comes stealing Like the taste of some forbidden sweet. Every ghost that calls upon us Brings another measure in the mystery Death is there To keep us honest And constantly remind us we are free.

TRANSCRIPT: Gibbs: But, again, let's--How about we do this? I promise we will interrupt the AP's tradition of asking the first question. I will let you [Chip Reid] ask me a question tomorrow as to whether you thought the questions at the town hall meeting that the President conducted in Annandale— Chip Reid: I'm perfectly happy to— Helen Thomas: That's not his point. The point is the control-- Reid: Exactly. Thomas: We have never had that in the White House. And we have had some, but not-- This White House. Gibbs: Yes, I was going to say, I'll let you amend her question. Thomas: I'm amazed. I'm amazed at you people who call for openness and transparency and— Gibbs: Helen, you haven't even heard the questions. Reid: It doesn't matter. It's the process. Thomas: You have left open— Reid: Even if there's a tough question, it's a question coming from somebody who was invited or was screened, or the question was screened. Thomas: It's shocking. It's really shocking. Gibbs: Chip, let's have this discussion at the conclusion of the town hall meeting. How about that? Reid: Okay. Gibbs: I think— Thomas: No, no, no, we're having it now-- Gibbs: Well, I'd be happy to have it now. Thomas: It's a pattern. Gibbs: Which question did you object to at the town hall meeting, Helen? Thomas: It's a pattern. It isn't the question— Gibbs: What's a pattern? Thomas: It's a pattern of controlling the press. Gibbs: How so? Is there any evidence currently going on that I'm controlling the press--poorly, I might add. Thomas: Your formal engagements are pre-packaged. Gibbs: How so? Reid: Well, and controlling the public— Thomas: How so? By calling reporters the night before to tell them they're going to be called on. That is shocking. Gibbs: We had this discussion ad nauseam and— Thomas: Of course you would, because you don't have any answers. Gibbs: Well, because I didn't know you were going to ask a question, Helen. Go ahead. Thomas: Well, you should have. Reporter: Thank you for your support. Gibbs: That's good. Have you e-mailed your question today? Thomas: I don't have to e-mail it. I can tell you right now what I want to ask. Gibbs: I don't doubt that at all, Helen. I don't doubt that at all. Thomas was born in Winchester, Kentucky, to Lebanese Christian immigrants from Tripoli, Lebanon, which at the time was part of Syria. She was brought up in Detroit, Michigan and attended Wayne University (now Wayne State University), graduating with a bachelor's degree in 1942. Thomas, 89, has covered the White House during every presidency since John F. Kennedys. Helen Thomas (born August 4, 1920) is an American news service reporter, a Hearst Newspapers columnist, and member of the White House Press Corps. She served for fifty-seven years as a correspondent and, later, White House bureau chief for United Press International (UPI). Thomas has covered every president since John F. Kennedy. She was the first female officer of the National Press Club, the first female member and president of the White House Correspondents Association, and, in 1975, the first female member of the Gridiron Club. http://www.cnsnews.com/public/content/article.aspx?RsrcID=50445

This is but a sampling of scriptures where Jesus (Jeshua in Hebrew and how he would have been called in his earthly homeland), claims equality with God the Father. There is much more to be studied and learned about ... do not be deceived ... Jesus died on the cross, not Judas. Jesus rose from the dead. He taught us that the commandments were summed up in Loving God and Loving our neighbor as ourselves. There is great wisdom to be found for those who open their minds and hearts ... There are three alternatives in making a choice for our faith ... as depicted in the video ... freedom of choice is not something to be taken lightly ... especially as concerns that which will come after our earthly lives. Now, you can believe or not believe ... that is your choice ... But as for me, I choose Jesus, whom I believe to be exactly who He said He was, and what His mission was in taking on the form of a man and teaching us the wisdom and values which God holds for us in our sojourn.

Italian Lyrics: Spirto gentil, ne' sogni miei brillasti un dì, ma ti perdei: fuggi dal cor; mentita speme, larve d'amor, larve d'amor, fuggite insieme, larve d'amor. A te d'accanto del genitore scordava il pianto, la patria, il ciel... donna sleal in tanto amore segnasti il core d'onta mortal, ahimè! English Translation Lyrics: Ye, gentle spirit, you once shined in my dreams but, after, I lost you forever: leave my frail heart, you false promises, ye ghosts of love - disappear altogether and at once, ye ghosts of love. In your vicinity I used to forget my father's afflictions, my homeland, and heaven... ye, unfair mistress, giving me so much love you weigh down on my heart human shame, alas!

I had the good fortune to hear him sing at the Metropolitan in New York City, where even though advanced in years, his perfect pitched voice, which was known to be one of the rare tenor voices that cracked crystal, rang through the rafters of the new Metropolitan as beautifully as did in the former one.

We are living in tumultuous times filled with despair worldwide. Some would say that we are living in the end of times -- something that has been foretold for millennium ... The Bible teaches that no one knows the date, but that we should recognize the signs ... and yet be filled with hope, faith and Love. Maranantha! There are many interpretations of end time prophesies ... and this is not a doom and gloom message, but one of hope and a video that intends the bottom line of all -- Maranantha! Maranatha 1 Cor. 16:22) consists of two Aramean words, Maran'athah, meaning, "our Lord comes," or is "coming." If the latter interpretation is adopted, the meaning of the phrase is, "Our Lord is coming, and he will judge those who have set him at nought." (Comp. Phil. 4:5; James 5:8, 9.) (Easton 1897 Bible Dictionary) The same word, Maranantha, is used as part of the final words in the last book, the last chapter, in the last paragraph of the Bible, Revelation, verses 20-21,: "He who testifies to these things says, 'Yes, I am coming quickly' Amen Come, Lord Jesus. The grace of the Lord Jesus be with all. Amen." The beauty of this verse tells us that we can stand firm, full of hope, faith and Love, waiting for the day when this earthly madness ends and Love and Justice will reign among us. Calling All Angels - Train I need a sign to let me know you're here All of these lines are being crossed over the atmosphere I need to know that things are gonna look up 'Cause I feel us drowning in a sea spilled from a cup When there is no place safe and no safe place to put my head When you feel the world shake from the words that are said [Chorus:] And I'm calling all angels I'm calling all you angels I won't give up if you don't give up I need a sign to let me know you're here 'Cause my TV set just keeps it all from being clear I want a reason for the way things have to be I need a hand to help build up some kind of hope inside of me [Chorus] When children have to play inside so they don't disappear And private eyes solve marriage lies cause we don't talk for years And football teams are kissing Queens and losing sight of having dreams In a world that what we want is only what we want until it's ours [Chorus x2] Calling all you angels

Sign the Petition at World Net Daily www.wnd.com/airportscreening This includes several clips and graphics that gives the viewer a 'feel' (pun intended) for what we stand to lose in our beloved country. The Fourth Amendment to the Constitution which reads, "The right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures, shall not be violated, and no Warrants shall issue, but upon probable cause, supported by Oath or affirmation, and particularly describing the place to be searched, and the persons or things to be seized." There is absolutely nothing reasonable about what the TSA is forcing on the public. The attitude of the TSA Chief, John Pistole, is unconscionable ... it's the same arrogant and ignorant rhetoric that we've been being fed for years now ... He said, "Yes, I do understand the sensitivities, Pistole testified before Congress, "If you are asking if I will change policies, no." Ron Paul is the first member of Congress to speak out about this crime against Americans and has introduced a bill to protect our rights .. Watch to the end of this video to hear Paul introduce into Congress the American Traveler Dignity Act. His outrage is clearly demonstrated. The former head of Israeli Security had some important comments about the body scanners dating back to January, "Asked about the recent case of the Nigerian Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab, Yeffet exaplained what he would have done differently, and how airline security is a very serious matter that should be left to professionals. "He would never ever could be able to dream to be able to come to the aircarft. The intelligence knew he was connected to al Qaida...he bought a one way ticket he paid 3000 dollars cash...

This is a collaborate effort by a young poet in Iran and an American performer. Photos of Iran were taken in April 2009, just prior to the atrocities that have been on going since the election held in June. Since that time dozens have been hung from cranes, hundreds tortured, and protesters placed on trial in kangaroo courts, while hundreds more remain in prisons. The photos are indicative of the peaceful nature of the people of Iran and the flourishing society that they strive towards. Their call is for equal rights, human rights, and dignity. They cry for an end to the dictatorship and the Islamic Republic. Please support them in spirit and in truth. The lyrics are simple, the sound moving. No photos showing faces of individuals have been used in this video for safety purposes. No photos of protesters have been utilized ... it is a video of respite from the horrors and one to set the spirit to a few moments escape and that ambition which drives the people -- AZADI!.

(Matthew 18:6) It's about the children ... it's needs to be about teaching them Love. Running Up That Hill "If I only could, I'd be running up that hill. If I only could, I'd be running up that hill." It doesn't hurt me. Do you want to feel how it feels? Do you want to know that it doesn't hurt me? Do you want to hear about the deal that I'm making? You, it's you and me. And if I only could, I'd make a deal with God, And I'd get him to swap our places, Be running up that road, Be running up that hill, Be running up that building. If I only could, oh... You don't want to hurt me, But see how deep the bullet lies. Unaware I'm tearing you asunder. Ooh, there is thunder in our hearts. Is there so much hate for the ones we love? Tell me, we both matter, don't we? You, it's you and me. It's you and me won't be unhappy. And if I only could, I'd make a deal with God, And I'd get him to swap our places, Be running up that road, Be running up that hill, Be running up that building, Say, if I only could, oh... You, It's you and me, It's you and me won't be unhappy. "C'mon, baby, c'mon darling, Let me steal this moment from you now. C'mon, angel, c'mon, c'mon, darling, Let's exchange the experience, oh..." And if I only could, I'd make a deal with God, And I'd get him to swap our places, Be running up that road, Be running up that hill, With no problems. And if I only could, I'd make a deal with God, And I'd get him to swap our places, Be running up that road, Be running up that hill, With no problems. And if I only could, I'd make a deal with God, And I'd get him to swap our places, Be running up that road, Be running up that hill, With no problems. If I only could Be running up that hill With no problems... "If I only could, I'd be running up that hill. If I only could, I'd be running up that hill."

A clip from the documentary The House I Live In which was released in November 1945 speaking to children about anti-semitism. The documentary is only 10 minutes long and can be found in its entirety on line. It was a wonderful message then as well as now ... reaching beyond anti-semitism and to what makes America great including all races and religions. "The House I Live In" [Intro:] What is America to me? A name, a map, or a flag I see? A certain word, "democracy"? What is America to me? The house I live in, a plot of earth, a street The grocer and the butcher, and the people that I meet The children in the playground, the faces that I see All races and religions, that's America to me The place I work in, the worker by my side The little town or city where my people lived and died The "howdy" and the handshake, the air of feeling free And the right to speak my mind out, that's America to me The things I see about me, the big things and the small The little corner newsstand and the house a mile tall The wedding in the churchyard, the laughter and the tears The dream that's been a-growin' for a hundred and fifty years The town I live in, the street, the house, the room The pavement of the city, or a garden all in bloom The church, the school, the clubhouse, the millions lights I see But especially the people That's America to me Common Free Use as Documentary - No Copyright Infringement Intended - speaks to the growing current issues of racism and more.

1 Corinthians 2: "And when I came to you, brethren, I did not come with superiority of speech or of wisdom, proclaiming to you the testimony of God. For I determined to know nothing among you except Jesus Christ, and Him crucified. I was with you in weakness and in fear and in much trembling, and my message and my preaching were not in persuasive words of wisdom, but in demonstration of the Spirit and of power, so that your faith would not rest on the wisdom of men, but on the power of God. Yet we do speak wisdom among those who are mature; a wisdom, however, not of this age nor of the rulers of this age, who are passing away; but we speak God's wisdom in a mystery, the hidden wisdom which God predestined before the ages to our glory; the wisdom which none of the rulers of this age has understood; for if they had understood it they would not have crucified the Lord of glory; but just as it is written, "THINGS WHICH EYE HAS NOT SEEN AND EAR HAS NOT HEARD, AND which HAVE NOT ENTERED THE HEART OF MAN, ALL THAT GOD HAS PREPARED FOR THOSE WHO LOVE HIM." For to us God revealed them through the Spirit; for the Spirit searches all things, even the depths of God. For who among men knows the thoughts of a man except the spirit of the man which is in him? Even so the thoughts of God no one knows except the Spirit of God. Now we have received, not the spirit of the world, but the Spirit who is from God, so that we may know the things freely given to us by God, which things we also speak, not in words taught by human wisdom, but in those taught by the Spirit, combining spiritual thoughts with spiritual words. But a natural man does not accept the things of the Spirit of God, for they are foolishness to him; and he cannot understand them, because they are spiritually appraised. But he who is spiritual appraises all things, yet he himself is appraised by no one. For WHO HAS KNOWN THE MIND OF THE LORD, THAT HE WILL INSTRUCT HIM? But we have the mind of Christ.

As science continues to explore extending life spans, all that stands as fact to date, are the historic evidence. While there are 'more' people surviving as opposed to our historic past which was plagued with various illnesses, lack of medical knowledge, and more; mankind continues to live no longer than has been true since the time of Noah - 120 years - the general maximum. As a family historian (genealogist), I have documented scores of persons in my own family tree, which have lived well into seniority ... and these documented persons span a time-line of over 500 years. Secular evidence supports that persons have topped out at about 120 years. Averages listed for purposes of statistics and 'life expectancy' are based on the numbers of persons living as opposed to those dying -- they do not reflect that 'life longevity' has changed one iota since the dawn of recorded history. Believe or don't believe is a choice. This video is to but give pause for thought on the longevity of a life and the Judeo-Christian principles that support historical longevity standings. Some believe that our faith contends against science -- when in reality, one merely supports and verifies the other in many areas. This is but a humble rendering of one item. We are destroying out planet ... as such, life longevity will mean nothing if we don't act responsibly and quickly. Please watch the documentary, "Home", as credited below for more information about our pale blue dot.

The stakes are high for us and our children. Everyone should take part in the effort, and HOME has been conceived to take a message of mobilization out to every human being. For this purpose, HOME needs to be free. A patron, the PPR Group, made this possible. EuropaCorp, the distributor, also pledged not to make any profit because Home is a non-profit film. HOME has been made for you : share it! And act for the planet. Yann Arthus-Bertrand, GoodPlanet Fundation President
