Thursday November 22nd – Open Thread

Our Father, who art in heaven, hallowed be thy Name. Thy kingdom come. THY WILL BE DONE, on earth as it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread. And forgive us our trespasses, as we forgive those who trespass against us. And lead us not into temptation, but DELIVER US FROM EVIL.

For Thine is the kingdom and the power and the glory, forever and ever. Amen †

    A Happy Thanksgiving for this family. Family reunited with their dog after serious crash on Interstate 81

    ROCKINGHAM COUNTY, Va. (WHSV) — Rudolph Damm, Joan Damm, and their 2-year-old yellow lab, Charlie, were traveling home to New York Monday night when they got into a serious crash on Interstate 81.

    The crash happened at mile marker 256, near the exit for Mauzy, Broadway and Timberville. The Damm’s car was totaled.

    As rescue personnel responded to the scene, the family’s dog, Charlie, jumped out of the car and disappeared.

    “We wound up going to the hospital and were released with minor injuries,” Rudolph Damm said. “But immediately we had to start looking for our dog.”

    The family posted about the missing dog on Facebook, and over 5,000 people shared it.

    “We found an amazing number of volunteers. They just come out of the hills and helped us,” said Damm. “It was a godsend, and they did it for two days.”

    Volunteers scoured the median on the interstate looking for Charlie. A volunteer made a dog trap with food and the owners’ clothing at mile marker 254, and the search for Charlie became a community effort.

    “We prayed and had several Hail Marys,” Joan Damm said. “Then we got a call from highway patrol. They had been looking for her, too, and they found her by mile marker 256. Right where the accident happened.”

    After three days of searching, the New Yorkers say they are thankful to have their family back together again for the holidays.

    “Thank you to the people of Virginia. We love Virginia. It is a state for lovers,” Rudolph Damm said. “The turnout here and the volunteers are just beyond description.”

  3. Today is Thanksgiving but it is also the anniversary of the assignation of President Kennedy. Shortly afterwards, in memory of this sad occasion, Bill Jenkins wrote this song. Those of us of a certain age will never forget that day.

      Thank you for the video. Reaffirmed my belief that we are being deliberately targeted for extinction. You know, I’ve been wondering about why they wanted to replace whites and why we’ such awful people all of a sudden. Let me rephrase that, as a southern white person, as long as I can remember, whites have been blamed for what is wrong with races. I’ve had it with the blame game and I have to admit that I am now completely tone deaf to it as a result of overkill.

      I was hoping that in my children’s generation things would improve, but from what I’m seeing on college campuses today, being white and male is a toxic combination. Sighhh!


  5. Sorry about that……here is the correct URL.

    lilbirdee12’s prayer:

    Our Heavenly Father, Your children come to you tonight to ask for healing and peace throughout our country so that we may return to being One Nation Under God. Guide us to be leaders in Your Kingdom, spreading Your Love and Salvation to all. Forgive us our sins and deliver us from evil.

    Lord, we ask for a blanket of protection over all our troops and law enforcement who serve to defend and protect us. Bless our representatives with the strength and wisdom they need to achieve the path You have chosen for us.

    Please place Your Guardian Angels of Protection around Donald Trump and Mike Pence and their families as they seek to lead America back to You.

    Grant us patience, Lord, as the evil ones try to anger us and cause us to fall.
    Spread blessings over Israel and Netanyahu.

    We humbly ask that You please comfort those who are grieving and in pain.
    Thank you Father, for Your Love and the gift of Life.

    In Jesus name, we pray. Amen.
