This saying about glory is hanging in my classroom. I can't possibly say it any better than McCain. I would love to say that I am this good, but I am not even in this guy's ballpark. When you compare McCain to Obama it is a massive mismatch. I have talked to my friends who are liberals and they have said that McCain is a guy they could vote for. All glory is not self-glory. Glory is not conceit. It is something that is greater than ourselves. Listen to what he says about glory.

I don't agree with him on all things, but I agree that he is a great man. He readily admits in his book that he was not a good man in his youth. When he was called by his country he gave to it what he had. And that was himself.

Can we expect as president that he will give anything less?

Thanks for the visit. As I said this passage from McCain's book so inspired me that I copied it and put it up in my classroom. It says what every person of substance should feel. Glory isn't a personal thing, it's an awareness that glory comes from being dedicated to something greater that ourselves. Words to live by.

Keep it up, Law and Order Teacher!

You have a great voice on the web.

I hope all's well with your family.

P.S. I'm tenured at my job, but since I'm at community college I have less worries in the publishing game. I'm thinking of writing a book soon on the left blogosphere's foreign policy, so I'll let you know. LOL!

No promises, but these lefties are pissing me off.

Have a great weekend!

This was wonderful. The quote at the bottom of the page: "Can we expect as president that he will give anything less?" made me think. NO, WE SHOULD NOT EXPECT LESS. WE SHOULD EXPECT MORE FROM THE PERSON THAT LEADS OUR COUNTRY.

Clinton and Obama certainly will not show this level of commitment to the county or its citizens. Thank you for posting this.
