MEMBER DIARY

From the indie/repub who always finds a way to vote dem

The following is from a coworker who asked me to post this for him. He has asked that it be shared and spread, so feel free!

AFTER LISTENING TO BOTH CANDIDATES I BELIEVE McCAIN IS THE BEST CHOICE FOR PRESIDENT. NOTHING AGAINST SENATOR OBAMA BUT PERHAPS AFTER HE HAS SPENT SOME TIME IN THE SENATE VOTING FOR OR AGAINST SOMETHING AND ESTABLISHING A RECORD HE CAN APPLY FOR THIS MOST IMPORTANT JOB IN THE WORLD.

SENATOR JOHN McCAIN

THE NEXT PRESIDENT OF THESE

UNITED STATES

After listening to stories of what you’ve been through

I’m left searching for words to express my gratitude

The reality of war, the sacrifices you’ve made

There has to be something I can think of to say

But the silence is deafening, the air quickly chills

And time for the moment becomes incredibly still

Leaving me standing there as if frozen in time

The images of your story forever etched in my mind

Taking a moment I reflect back through the years

My heart becomes heavy, my eyes fill with tears

The world as we know it has so drastically changed

It seems our way of life will never be the same

Since this country began we’ve been tested and tried

Many have stepped forward, many have heroically died

Defending this country, eager to answer the call

Pursuing liberty and justice for one and for all

Proud? You better believe I’m proud

And grateful for your sacrifice both then and now

Defending our country, our freedom, our way of life

Knowing at any moment you could make the ultimate sacrifice

Giving of yourselves so that people in this country remain free

Free to openly express their opinions, to argue, to disagree

Whether their sons and daughters should be put in harm’s way

Causing me to wonder what language we might be speaking today

And for those who have perished and to the loved ones who remain

Know that your ultimate sacrifice for freedom will not be in vain

Now more than ever we need to unite and come together as one

Putting our differences aside and support our daughters and sons

Who are willing to go into harm’s way, risk the ultimate sacrifice

Defending our country, our freedom, our way of life

Unsung heroes who have stepped forward and answered the call

Ensuring the dream of liberty and justice continues for one and for all

And though we know that in life there are no guarantees

Because of people like you Senator McCain, we continue to be free

So after listening to your story of what you’ve been through

I am confidant this country can once again depend on you

To defend our freedom, our beliefs, our way of life

Drawing from a life time of experience, a life time of sacrifice

So as you prepare for this journey we want you to know

Our prayers and thoughts are with you wherever you go

And for a life time of service along with the sacrifice you’ve made

You will become one of the greatest Presidents of these United States
