Jack’s Winning Words 7/3/15
“What we need are patriots who express their faith in their country by working to improve it.” (Hubert Humphrey) One of the symbols of patriotism in our country is the American flag. It’s sad that other flags are being used to promote issues showing a division among our nation. I’d like to see an effort made to narrow the separations, rather than widen them. HH authored the Civil Rights Act and helped establish the Peace Corps. He lived his patriotism. ;-) Jack
FROM FACEBOOK LIZ: i agree whole-heartedly. happy independence day!====JACK: "Ask not what your country can do for you...."====LIZ: a top ten quote!
FROM ST PAUL IN ST PAUL: our football stadium was named for HHH but now we tore it down.====JACK: Even when it was standing and in use, it was seldom referred to using the Humphrey name. It was the Metrodome. Why was that?
FROM BLAZING OAKS: iT DOES SEEM LIKE WE LACK THE LEADERSHIP WE ONCE HAD TO "GET THINGS DONE" FOR THE GOOD OF THE COUNTRY!====JACK: I think that Gerrymandering has something to do with it...and also the influence of PACs, under the guise of "free speech."
FROM TARMART REV: Its still printed as such, "One Nation under God . . ." I'm still flying that flag in my heart, but seeing a concerted effort of removing it . . . hopefully, by God's grace, it will remain standing.====JACK: Ours is a beautiful flag, with rich symbolism...and displaying a positive message.
FROM CHESTER, THE GOOD: JFK's "Ask not" quote is the most on-target EVER.====JACK: It certainly energized a lot of people.
