The most brilliant video I have seen on youtube in a long time.
Also, the hobble skirt scene is brilliant.
They shall not grow old as we that are left grow old:
Age shall not weary them, nor the years condemn.
At the going down of the sun and in the morning
We will remember them.
“One thing’s indisputable, America’s not going to stop exploring.Thank you Columbia, Challenger, Discovery, Endeavour and our ship Atlantis. Thank you for protecting us, and bringing this program to such a fitting end. God bless all of you, God bless the United States of America.”
I watched the landing with tears in my eyes and pride in my heart.
O! say can you see by the dawn’s early light,
What so proudly we hailed at the twilight’s last gleaming,
Whose broad stripes and bright stars through the perilous fight,
O’er the ramparts we watched, were so gallantly streaming?
And the rockets’ red glare, the bombs bursting in air,
Gave proof through the night that our flag was still there;
O! say does that star-spangled banner yet wave,
O’er the land of the free and the home of the brave?
“On September 14, 1814, U.S. soldiers at Baltimore’s Fort McHenry raised a huge American flag to celebrate a crucial victory over British forces during the War of 1812. The sight of those “broad stripes and bright stars” inspired Francis Scott Key to write a song that eventually became the United States national anthem. Key’s words gave new significance to a national symbol and started a tradition through which generations of Americans have invested the flag with their own meanings and memories.”
Every single one of my followers needs to watch this video. I don’t care where you are or if you think this doesn’t have anything to do with you because it does.
But most of all everyone single one of you who keeps complaining about Glee getting cut off because the storm trackers are “interrupting your show” trying to help save lives, this video is for you. I’m just so sick of seeing people on my dashboard complaining about Glee. Watch this video and then you will be thankful that the storm trackers are there.
The only thing I could think of besides these peoples families is that at this same moment somewhere in the city over 124 people have already lost their lives and it’s still rising and that 1,500 other people are missing, it’s just too much.
This is the moment the an EF5 hit Joplin. At 3:07 I just lost it and sat here and sobbed and I’m still trembling.
You hear the glass break. The screams. My God the people screaming. There is a lady praying to the Lord, children are crying and somewhere in the background there is a girl saying ” Please, I don’t want to die” and then the most horrific sound I have ever heard: the sound of a freight train and the tornado is on them. You can hear the building being torn apart around them while people scream, cry and pray and survive. I just hope for the best as they try to find family members.
I just want to hug my Mom right now. I want hug my Dad and my brother and his girlfriend and my dog and reassure myself that they are safe. Tennessee isn’t even in the path of the storm but I just want to make sure they are ok.
This example of a uniform jacket worn by an officer during the American Revolution is completely hand-made. Owned by Col. William Taylor, it shows a significant amount of wear. Color, style and number of buttons are among the features used to identify one’s military unit, or regiment, in this case Connecticut Regiment 1776.
You see the British were not the only Redcoats in this war, green and red jackets like this were worn by Officers.
I’ve seen things much older. I’ve seen things much more impressive. But nothing can ever compare to the pride I feel when I look at this jacket.
