This is a quote from the article written by Dan McManus in Armed American Report.I can post the whole article,if there is an interest.
"So,I got my CCW & carry a gun because: 1.It's my patriotic duty. 2.It was the un-politically-correct thing to do. 3.To keep me alert & attentive. 4.I don't trust luck. 5.As an act of Christian charity. (How can I read about the "Good Samaritan" or follow the teachings of Jesus, and not be aware that I have a responsibility to look out for others, to be my brother's keeper.You can choose to be a bystander(Google Kitty Genovese).However,my Christian upbringing has taught me that I am not to be blind to the plight of others and that this world would be a better place if we all looked out for each other.) 6.As a reflection of my pro-active lifestyle. 7.To stack the deck in my favor. So now you know why I carry a gun,why will you carry yours?"
I agree with the article & above quote. If you wish to not read this blog any longer,knowing my stance about personal protection,that is your choice.
~I made a batch of Chili Stew for the Hanging of the Greens crew.
~After Lessons & Carols and Coffee Hour(the chili was all gone!),Anne & me went to pick Susan up so we could attend "White Christmas" play.It was good,but not as good as some others.
