Olympic Uniforms

posted by Ruth Graham

We were informed this week that the uniforms that our wonderful athletes will wear to the Olympic games in London were made in China. There was an outcry in this country – as well there should be. Majority leader of the House of Representatives, Harry Reid, went on the air decrying this and suggested the uniforms be burned. Not wise. If we want to get rid of these particular uniforms, then lets give them to folks who need them – burning them is a horrible waste – suggested by those who don’t know need or have forgotten what need is.

I was just in Colorado Springs and witnessed people sifting through the ashes – they have nothing left. They’d love some clothes.

However, let’s consider why the clothes were made in China. Politics. The atmosphere in this country is not conducive to having things made in the USA. Costs are too high. Labor is too expensive and hard to come by.

Things need to change.

The Blessings that Remain
I may have posted this last year...it's worth repeating.   There are loved ones that are missing From the fireside and the feast; There are faces that have vanished There are voices that have ceased; And we know they passed forever From our mortal grief and pain - And we

Being Thankful
I  got this some years ago. It is by an unknown author. It's all a matter of perspective.   Being thankful for: The mess to clean after a party because it means I have been surrounded by friends. The taxes I pay because it means that I am employed. The clothes that fit a little
