The thought of Halloween fills my head with mysterious haint tales and russet leaves blowing across a path, with the eerie sights of carved pumpkins glowing in a mist of flickering light. Halloween is filled with ghosts and goblins running amuck in search of tricks and treats. The fall air fills with sounds of mischievous giggles and laughter as they mix with the smell of scorching pumpkins on a cool, crisp night. Ooh, the magic of Halloween! Suddenly, giggles and laughter cease when a child lies motionless on the cold, dark pavement—the result of an accident caused by a Halloween distraction. Had I only changed one thing—giggles and laughter would still fill the night.
Halloween safety is a must and we all play an important role in keeping ghosts and goblins safe.

Some of my fondest childhood memories are of my grandfather. I remember walking through the mountains listening to him tell stories about his service in the U. S. Army. He often reminisced of a small boy who would approach him on the streets of Europe asking for food. My grandfather’s chest would swell with pride and his eyes with tears as he talked about giving the boy his food rations. The stories of my grandfather were not of self-pride and gratification, but more about his pride of being an American and his service to his country.
A few weeks ago, as I drove through North Carolina in what used to be the furniture capital of the world; I noticed cranes with wrecking balls tearing down factories where once people worked. Driving though Chattanooga Tennessee you see graffiti on the walls of old factories where once people went to work with pride. As a teenager I can remember standing on the streets of Continue reading Healthy Patriotism→
