    In a recent interview, General Norman Schwartzkof was asked if he thought there was room for forgiveness toward the people who have harboured and abetted the terrorists who perpetrated the 9/11 attacks on America. His answer..."I believe that forgiving them is God's function. Our job is simply to arrange the meeting."

    A United States Marine was attending some college courses between
    assignments. He had completed missions in Iraq and Afghanistan . One of
    the courses had a professor who was an avowed atheist, and a member of
    the ACLU.

    One day the professor shocked the class when he came in.
    He looked to the ceiling and flatly stated, GOD if you are real then I
    want you to knock me off this platform. I'll give you exactly
    15 min.' The lecture room fell silent. You could hear a pin drop.
    Ten minutes went by and the professor proclaimed, 'Here I am GOD, I'm
    still waiting.'

    It got down to the last couple of minutes when the Marine got out of
    his chair, went up to the professor, and cold-cocked him; knocking him
    off the platform. The professor was out cold.
    The Marine went back to his seat and sat there, silently.

    The other students were shocked and stunned, and sat there looking on in
    silence. The professor eventually came to, noticeably shaken, looked at
    the Marine and asked, 'What in the world is the matter with you? 'Why
    did you do that?'

    The Marine calmly replied, 'GOD was too busy today protecting America
    's soldiers who are protecting your right to say stupid stuff and act
    like an idiot. So He sent me.'

    The classroom erupted in cheers!

    And when he gets to heaven,
    To St. Peter he will tell,
    Another soldier reporting sir,
    I've served my time in Hell.

    The world is a dangerous place, not because of those who do evil, but because of those who look on and do nothing.

    ITS CHRISTMAS DAY ALL IS SECURE



    TWAS THE NIGHT BEFORE CHRISTMAS

    HE LIVED ALL ALONE

    IN A ONE BEDROOM HOUSE MADE OF PLASTER AND STONE

    I HAD COME DOWN THE CHIMNEY WITH PRESENTS TO GIVE

    AND TO SEE JUST WHO IN THIS HOME DID LIVE



    I LOOKED ALL ABOUT A STRANGE SIGHT I DID SEE

    NO TINSEL NO PRESENTS NOT EVEN A TREE

    NO STOCKING BY THE MANTLE JUST BOOTS FILLED WITH SAND

    ON THE WALL HUNG PICTURES OF FAR DISTANT LANDS

    WITH MEDALS AND BADGES AWARDS OF ALL KINDS

    A SOBER THOUGHT CAME THROUGH MY MIND



    FOR THIS HOUSE WAS DIFFERENT IT WAS DARK AND DREARY

    I FOUND THE HOME OF A SOLDIER ONCE I COULD SEE CLEARLY

    THE SOLDIER LAY SLEEPING SILENT ALONE

    CURLED UP ON THE FLOOR IN THIS ONE BEDROOM HOME



    THE FACE WAS SO GENTLE THE ROOM IN SUCH DISORDER

    NOT HOW I PICTURED A LONE BRITISH SOLDIER

    WAS THIS THE HERO OF WHOM I'D JUST READ

    CURLED UP ON A PONCHO THE FLOOR FOR A BED



    I REALISED THE FAMILIES THAT I SAW THIS NIGHT

    OWED THEIR LIVES TO THESE SOLDIERS WHO WERE WILLING TO FIGHT

    SOON ROUND THE WORLD THE CHILDREN WOULD PLAY

    AND GROWNUPS WOULD CELEBRATE A BRIGHT CHRISTMAS DAY



    THEY ALL ENJOY FREEDOM EACH MONTH OF THE YEAR

    BECAUSE OF THE SOLDIERS LIKE THE ONE LYING HERE

    I COULDN'T HELP WONDER HOW MANY ALONE

    ON A COLD CHRISTMAS EVE IN A LAND FAR FROM HOME



    THE VERY THOUGH BROUGHT A TEAR TO MY EYE

    I DROPPED TO MY KNEES AND STARTED TO CRY

    THE SOLDIER AWAKENED AND I HEARD A ROUGH VOICE

    'SANTA DON'T CRY THIS LIFE IS MY CHOICE

    I FIGHT FOR FREEDOM I DON'T ASK FOR MORE

    MY LIFE IS MY GOD, MY COUNTRY. MY CORPS'



    THE SOLDIER ROLLED OVER AND DRIFTED TO SLEEP

    I COULDN'T CONTROL IT I CONTINUED TO WEEP



    I KEPT WATCH FOR HOURS SO SILENT AND STILL

    AND WE BOTH SAT AND SHIVERED FROM THE COLD NIGHTS CHILL

    I DIDN'T WANT TO LEAVE ON THAT COLD DARK NIGHT

    THIS GUARDIAN OF HONOUR SO WILLING TO FIGHT



    THEN THE SOLDIER ROLLED OVER WITH A VOICE SOFT AND PURE

    WHISPERED 'CARRY ON SANTA ITS CHRISTMAS DAY ALL IS SECURE'

    ONE LOOK AT MY WATCH AND I KNEW HE WAS RIGHT

    'MERRY CHRISTMAS MY FRIEND AND TO ALL A GOOD NIGHT'
