What is happening to today's world? We now have home grown terrorists in many countries. We may have some sleeper cells in the USA. What causes people to turn against their own friends and neighbors? We have to support our government and weed out these home grown terrorists. We live in the United States of America, a great democracy. The freedoms that we share have been earned over years by our members in the military service, and the cost was not cheap. We can not give in to some idiots who think that they are better than us and intend to destroy all that we have.
We should thank the Green Bay Packers for an outstanding season. Even though they did not make it to the Super Bowl, they played like champions. The last game against the Seattle Seahawks was a hard fought game. Not every team makes it this far. If fate had turned our way, we would be in the Super Bowl. Honor the players who did their best to win every game. Thank you Green Bay Packers for all of your efforts. Maybe things will be different next year. Now rest your weary bones and wait for next year to start over again.
On Monday, January 19, 2015, we celebrate the Marting Luther King,jr Holiday. There will be no mail today, and many banks will also be closed. This is a day to reflect on the life of Martin Luther King, jr. Enjoy this holiday and hope that our weather is decent today.
On Sunday, at about 2 pm, the Green Bay Packers will meet the Seattle Seahawks for the championship for the NFC. Since we lost to Seattle in the first game of the season, we are listed as underdogs for Sunday's game. I predict that this will be a hard battle for victory. Let's hope that Green Bay can pull this game out. I predict that many people will have their eyes glued to their TV sets during this football game. Let's support the Green Bay Packers.
