Support Our Troops (re-post request)

“It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood, who strives valiantly; who errs and comes short again and again; because there is not effort without error and shortcomings; but who does actually strive to do the deed; who knows the great enthusiasm, the great devotion, who spends himself in a worthy cause, who at the best knows in the end the triumph of high achievement and who at the worst, if he fails, at least he fails while daring greatly. So that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who know neither victory nor defeat.” ~ Theodore Roosevelt

This link is for the same song but the video here has different pictures and a beautiful prayer at the end.
Please take the time to click on the link. It is really worth viewing.

And I'm proud to know you Raggedy...! Beautiful song, my dear...just beautiful!

I mentioned "Something's Gotta Give" in my Oscar Post today...Diane Keaton was nominated for an Oscar for that film and it is a wonderful romantic comedy---Jack Nicholson and Keaton are magic together....Good script, good music, good acting! If you haven't seen it, do rent it.

Great tribute! I am totally supportive of our troops. More than half of mt youngest daughter's unit is in Iraq right now. And my baby girl will be leaving in a few weeks to join them. So I'm praying all the time for all those soldiers over there. God bless them all.

Gidday Raggedy,
What a beautiful song and great supporting pictures.
The words of this song brings a lump to my throat. I get really "misty" quite often to this sort of moving music.
Also thanks for visiting my blog and adding a few more quotes to "So You Think You Know Everthing" list.
