    I would have gone if I had to. I really was a good student. I graduated in 4 years with about a 3.4 average and went to dental school until I mangled my hand in a car wreck.

    I know I was joking before in my first post, but if you really are patriotic, live your life every day patriotically...realizing that the flag and the anthem are symbols for freedom, equality and justice. Give thanks for that and respect the flag by flying it properly...taking it down at night if there's no dedicated light on it. Properly disposing of it before it's torn up. Being respectful to the anthem at home when it's played before a game on TV.

    Realize and acknowledge that the country was founded on rights that God gave us...not some man or government. "In God we trust"...then really trust in God and let His will come true in our lives...especially when it comes to our less fortunate brothers.

    Don't just be patriotic right before kickoff.

    It really says that in the preamble of the declaration of independence.

    I really am. I can't walk too good. I fall without a walker, but I'm cool with it. It is what it is... I have to be cool with it. Lol
