Happy Veterans Day!

They Did Their Share
On Veteran’s Day we honor
Soldiers who protect our nation.
For their service as our warriors,
They deserve our admiration.

Some of them were drafted;
Some were volunteers;
For some it was just yesterday;
For some it’s been many years;

In the jungle or the desert,
On land or on the sea,
They did whatever was assigned
To produce a victory.

Some came back; some didn’t.
They defended us everywhere.
Some saw combat; some rode a desk;
All of them did their share.

No matter what the duty,
For low pay and little glory,
These soldiers gave up normal lives,
For duties mundane and gory.

Let every veteran be honored;
Don’t let politics get in the way.
Without them, freedom would have died;
What they did, we can’t repay.

We owe so much to them,
Who kept us safe from terror,
So when we see a uniform,
Let’s say "thank you" to every wearer.

Penn State Coach Molests Young Boys

This is a crazy world we live in. When I heard about the ex-Penn State coach, Jerry Sandusky, 67 years old was arrested Saturday for sexually assaulting 8 boys, I was outraged to find out that someone had walked in on him having sex with a 10 year old boy in the locker room and the person who walked in reported it to his higher up, but no one called the police. I don't care who the person is, if you walk in on a grown man molesting a child you stop it and call the police. Everyone involved in hiding Sandusky a known pedophile on campus should be fired from the their jobs and charged as accessories to a crime. Anyone else would be charged as accessories to a crime if they walked in on someone sexually assaulting a minor, so why shouldn't they be charged too. It totally amazes me that all those people who knew what he was doing turned the other cheek and and allowed him to molest children. They knowingly allowed him the ruin the lives of children. I don't know how they sleep at night knowing what they did. In my eyes they are just as bad as him. The very second someone found out about what he was doing he should have been reported him to the police.

Having a known pedophile on campus is against the law. Hundreds of children come to college campuses every summer for summer camps. The man should have not been allowed to get away with what he was doing for so many years. I am sure 8 children is just the tip of the iceberg, more will come forward to tell their stories now that it is out. Only God knows how many young boys has been molested by Sandusky and have had their lives ruined because someone failed to protect them. Curley and Shultz hid his dirty little secret and now they are going down with him and I am sure more will fall with them.
