Dressing A Soldier For The Last Time

By Coach Phatty, published on May 10, 2014

This is a picture behind the scenes at Dover Air Force Base where the bodies of fallen soldiers are prepared for burial.

And that includes being properly dressed, all the way down to the smallest detail. In this picture Staff Sgt. Miguel Deynes is making sure the uniform is just right for an army pilot recently killed in Afghanistan.

There is a very specific process once a fallen soldier is returned home.

The bodies are flown back to the U.S. on a cargo jet.

A team of service members wearing white gloves carries the coffins, covered with flags, to a white van that... (more)

Living Like A Ferrari

By Randy Mitchell, published on Oct 15, 2013

This isn’t an article about a car, well, not really. Rather, it’s a discussion about how a Ferrari would feel if one were to be human. It’s about the type of emotions it would carry inside: the pain, sorrows, celebrations, respect and love it would show others. It’s about the power and confidence provided to those lucky enough to drive and appreciate being in its presence. It’s also about the overall image it would project to the world if made of blood, guts and true feelings.

A Ferrari is an amazing machine. It’s mostly hand made to razor-like specifications and precision by those gifted... (more)

Respect In Your Life

By Randy Mitchell, published on Oct 8, 2012

Do you show respect to others in your life? Do they show the same to you? What do you regard as respectful behavior? Is it merely doing as one says when they say they'll do it, or does it dive much deeper than that, demonstrating by not only backing up what one says, as much as one does? According to Wikipedia, the definition of respect is: "Respect gives a positive feeling of esteem or deference for a person or other entity (such as a nation or a religion), and also specific actions and conduct representative of that esteem. Respect can be a specific feeling of regard for the actual... (more)

Observations On Life....

By Barbara MacDonald , published on Sep 21, 2012

...are saying... you are not capable of running your own life and making good choices. This is why when working with people, I will not give them the answers. I will try to direct them to find that within themselves. I do have trusted friends that I will ask for advice from. But please , respect me enough to let me ask, rather than be told...

Something we all need to realize is to stop gathering information from outside ourselves and instead look within our own hearts and soul to find what is "right" for us. People very often are afraid of what's on the inside, but ... (more)

Walking Away From Unhealthy Love

By Randy Mitchell, published on Mar 7, 2012

...nothing but tattered scars both inside and out.

In my novel, Sons in the Clouds I created two male protagonists. One was very fortunate at an early age to meet the woman of his dreams. They shared a special love and bond which stood the test of time no matter what. They loved, played, respected, trusted, and were completely devoted to each other. They were inseparable from their first moments and the chemistry between them was filled with those rare, indescribable ingredients we all dream of experiencing. The other fell hard for the wrong woman. She secretly lied, and stole a great ... (more)

Just the Beginning (part 3)

By taking off the mask, published on Aug 1, 2010

As the final bell rings I fly out the door not sure what I’m rushing for. There isn’t anywhere really to go, nowhere to run, I don’t have a place to hide. I walk by the lake letting my feet get wet. Not letting myself get upset. Not letting myself cry, not letting myself try. I hate having to lie, hate having no one by my side. I know many guys try but they aren’t real they just want someone to feel. I have no real friends, they just pretend. Being in my light will make them also shine bright. What they don’t know is my light burned out, all I can do now is sit and figure out. I just want... (more)
