NEVER FORGET: 9/11 – “OVERCOME EVIL WITH GOOD”

I’m a person who is calm and focused in an emergency and only cries afterward. It’s difficult for me in these years after the facts of 9/11 to watch the re-enactments from the tragedies because I feel compelled during them to level orders at people — potential victims — to get-moving, get-out, pull it together […]

FORMER PRESIDENT GEORGE W. BUSH WANTS YOU TO SHARE YOUR 9/11 STORY

A Time to Remember. “Ten years ago, the sun rose on a peaceful September morning. By the time it set, nearly three thousand people were gone – the most lives lost on American soil in a single day since the Battle of Antietam. But the courage of so many men and women who saved innocent […]

HAPPY SAINT PATRICK’S DAY 2011

Here’s Darby O’Gill playin’ “The Fox Chase” (begins at about 5:00 minutes into the video) from Walt Disney’s film, “Darby O’Gill and the Little People.” The scene tasks anyone to sit still while it’s playin’. The film is a classic that every child — now and in the future — should see at least once. […]

OBAMA DECLARES “HISTORICAL EVENT” – SO DID FIDEL CASTRO WHEN HE CALLED CAPITALISTS “WORMS” & SHOT A LOT OF CUBANS

Here we go again: you’d think human beings would *get it* once and for all that following leap-duds (though they may be pretty and speak with a booming voice) over a cliff amounts to little more than self-destruction. Millions of Americans (so it was reported – at this point, I, honestly, have little confidence that […]

SITE CHANGES (PLEASE UPDATE ANY LINKS)

I relocated the blog contents from this site’s sub-directory (“suzyrice.com/BIRD” — /BIRD is that sub-directory) to the parent or home directory: all site contents now republishing under suzyrice.com (so long to BIRD). Reasons why, as to this change, are both technical and literary: (1.) site statistics have continued by majority to read-off the home directory […]

FATHER’S DAY – REMEMBERING MINE

I’m wishing everyone today a very Happy Father’s Day, and, remembering my own Dad with immense affection. There is rarely a day goes by and has for years now since his passing on that I do not think of him, regret my own youthful lack of awareness in expressing more to him how much he […]
