09 April 2007. I had a couple of different things come to mind about posting for today, but my day didn't lend a helping hand with it. No problems here, don't worry. I started off, with I have some pictures from a supply drop at a school. I will do this one later this week. My second thought was to post about some new sites I found about Afghanistan. I stumbled upon a directory of sorts that lists many sites dedicated to the struggle here in Afghanistan, but I'll do that one later too. It will be interesting as I found some of them to be negative, others hopeful and still more much happier. Along with those, there was more information about the government, the military, the business opportunities and so on.
I started my day off with no particular plans of doing much outside of the office. I ended up going to a meeting at the police district headquarters during my morning and a meeting at ISAF during the afternoon. Then after all that a company meeting with the First Sergeant. Don't tell Oregon, but I'm glad they canceled the other meeting that was on my schedule for this evening, NCODP. That might have been what did it for me. I was in no particular mood today, but after the First Sergeant's meeting I was in a pretty good mood. No, this isn't much of a stretch for me as you might know, I stay in a good mood most of the time.
Can someone speak with Al Gore and find out why Ohio had a White Easter? Speaking of Global Warming and Easter. You do realize that believing in this stuff is actually denying Christ as Peter did in the garden? That to put stock in Global Warming is rejecting a higher power, a creator, my God. If Easter was about Jesus resurrecting from the grave, then God is in control of all we do, and the earth will be around and operating as long as He sees fit.
I have been reading some great posts lately out there in my little circle of the blogsphere. I want to say thank you and keep it up. I want to also say thank you to each one of you who truly support the men and women wearing the uniforms of the military forces, U.S., British, Canadian, French, German, Afghan and Iraqi. I am by no means an expert on much, but having been in this country for a total of 20 months on two separate occasions now, I know what is working and what isn't. There is no easy fix, we spent 30+ years in Germany before Berlin became one city united, we are still in Korea after 50+ years. There is some fine tuning that needs to be done, some ideas and programs probably scrapped all together, but we can not under any circumstances quit. Quiting and failure are simply not an option against this enemy.
Well, for not knowing what I wanted to put in this post, I think I've said a mouthful.
West Coast, Happy Funday, East Coast, Happy Monkey Monday. Be safe and have a great day.
