“You cannot help the poor by destroying the rich...strengthen the weak by weakening the strong...bring about prosperity by discouraging thrift...lift the wage earner up by pulling the wage payer down...build character and courage by taking away people’s initiative and independence...help people permanently by doing for them, what they could and should do for themselves." -Abraham Lincoln
Welcome to another what is it Wednesday. I hope everyone is surviving the heat and the storms. To day I have wooden boxes that American Cheese (processed cheese) would come in. The one on the top is from Windsor Canada, and the bottom one from Kraft. Both would have been behind the glass at the meat counter. You had to talk to the butcher, who would help you pick out your meat, weigh it, and wrap it up in paper. The cheese would be sliced for you on the spot, and wrapped up. When the cheese was used up, they would turn the box over, and inside added index cards, or paper slips. If you did not have money to pay for your items, you could ask if you could put this on your account. At the end of the week, and you where paid, you would go in and pay on your account. Imagine long before the plastic credit card, and debit cards, you could get a line of credit at the meat, produce, or dry good stores. Remember we did not have the super size grocery stores. You bough what you could use up in a couple of days. Refrigerators may have been the ice box, and food would spoil fast. The store owners where you neighbors, friends, most where honest, and so where their customers. Simply needs for a simply time.

There hasn't been much said about the military mom. Yet no wars could ever have been won without her! A military mom is a teacher of independence, perserverance, discipline and integrity, possesses a great sense of humor and can make of any house, a home. She is a woman of quiet strength who has shaped the hearts of our Bravest Heroes and taught them to value peace above all else. The military mom is unshakable in love for her country. That is how she is able to let go of her most precious treasure. A son or daughter. We proudly salute and thank the "Military Mom".
