President George W. Bush with wounded warriors

CLASS DOESN'T MAKE THE NEWS!

Green and white shirt, black tee shirt, gray pants and tennis shoes.
 

How many people know that President Bush hosts
a few Wounded Warriors at his ranch 10 weekends every year?
Every yearAll expenses paid!

Not what you expect to see, huh?
There he is, dancing with a "Wounded Warrior" who has lost a leg but still dances.

I guarantee we will NEVER see a story or picture
like this from NBC, CBS, ABC, The New York Times,
or The Washington Post.
 God Bless America

Christmas symbols - Teach the children



 TEACH THE CHILDREN WHAT THEY MEAN !!!!

This is how it happened...I just finished the household chores for the night and was preparing to go to bed, when I heard a noise in the front of the house.

I opened the door to the front room and to my surprise, Santa himself stepped out from behind the Christmas tree.
He placed his finger over his mouth so I would not cry out. "What are you doing?" I started to ask. The words choked up in my throat, and I saw he had tears in his eyes. His usual jolly manner was gone. Gone was the eager, boisterous soul we all know.

He then answered me with a simple statement.
"TEACH THE CHILDREN!"

I was puzzled; what did he mean? He anticipated my question, and with one quick movement brought forth a miniature toy bag from behind the tree. As I stood bewildered, Santa said, "Teach the children! Teach them the old meaning of Christmas. The meaning that now-a-days Christmas has forgotten."

Santa then reached in his bag and pulled out a FIR TREE and placed it before the mantle.
"Teach the children that the pure green color of the stately fir tree
remains green all year round, depicting the everlasting hope of mankind, all the needles point heavenward, making it a symbol of man's thoughts turning toward heaven."

He again reached into his bag and pulled out a brilliant STAR.
"Teach the children that the star was the heavenly sign of promises long ago. God promised a Savior for the world, and the star was the sign of fulfillment of His promise."

He then reached into his bag and pulled out a CANDLE.
"Teach the children that the candle symbolizes that Christ is the light of the world, and when we see this great light we are reminded of He who displaces the darkness."

Once again he reached into his bag and removed a WREATH and placed it on the tree. 
"Teach the children that the wreath symbolizes the real nature of love. Real love never ceases. Love is one continuous round of affection."

 He then pulled from his bag an ornament of himself.
"Teach the children that I, Santa Claus symbolize the generosity and good will we feel during the month of December."

He then brought out a HOLLY LEAF.
"Teach the children that the holly plant represents immortality. It represents the crown of thorns worn by our Savior. The red holly represents the blood shed by Him."

Next he pulled from his bag a GIFT 
and said, "Teach the children that God so loved the world that HE gave HIS only begotten SON."
"Thanks be to God for his unspeakable gift.  Teach the children that the wise men 
bowed before the Holy BABE and presented HIM with gold, frankincense and myrrh. We should always give gifts in the same spirit of the wise men."

Santa then reached in his bag and pulled out a CANDY CANE
and hung it on the tree. "Teach the children that the candy cane represents the shepherds' crook. The crook on the staff helps to bring back strayed sheep to the flock. The candy cane is the symbol that we are our brother's keeper."

He reached in again and pulled out an ANGEL.
"Teach the children that it was the angels that heralded in the glorious news of the Savior's birth. The angels sang 'Glory to God in the highest, on earth peace and good will toward men."

Suddenly I heard a soft twinkling sound, and from his bag he pulled out a BELL. 
"Teach the children that as the lost sheep are found by the sound of the bell, it should ring mankind to the fold. The bell symbolizes guidance and return."

Santa looked back and was pleased. He looked back at me and I saw that the twinkle was back in his eyes. He said, "Remember, teach the children the true meaning of Christmas and do not put me in the center, for I am but a humble servant of the One that is, and I bow down to worship HIM, our LORD, our GOD."

How the stock market works

Once upon a time in a village, a man appeared and announced to the villagers that he would buy monkeys for $10 each. 

The villagers, seeing that there were many monkeys around, went out to the forest, and started catching them. The man bought thousands at $10 and as supply started to diminish, the villagers stopped their effort. 

He further announced that he would now buy at $20.  This renewed the efforts of the villagers and they
 started catching monkeys again. Soon the supply diminished even further and people started going back to their farms. The offer increased to $25 each and the supply of monkeys became so little that it was an effort to even see a monkey, let alone catch it!  


The man now announced that he would buy monkeys at $50! However, since he had to go to the city on some business, his assistant would now buy on behalf of him. 

In the absence of the boss, the assistant told the villagers. "Look at all these monkeys in the big cage that my boss has collected. I will sell them to you at $35 and when my boss returns from the city, you can sell them to him for $50 each." 


The villagers rounded up with all their savings and bought all the monkeys. The assistant promptly disappeared, the boss never returned, and there were worthless monkeys everywhere!

Now you have a better understanding of how the stock market works.
 
 
The real measure of your wealth is how much you'd be worth if you lost all your money.
