Wednesday Edition for 5/6/2020 - Blue Angels Salute

By

Aristotle once said: "You will never do anything in

this world without courage. It is the greatest quality

of the mind next to honor." 

 

May 6, 2020

Who could imagine while working on the hot and dirty rooftop of the MetroTex Association of REALTORS® in Dallas, something as great as witnessing and joining in a salute to the Blue Angels could be possible? Brian Johannes and Tim Barton of MetroTex took this amazing video of the flyover Dallas by the Blue Angeles. As they flew over the skies of Flower Mound at 11:00 a.m. before flying to Dallas, I couldn't have been prouder.

"You gain strength, courage, and confidence by every

experience in which you really stop to look fear in the

face. You are able to say to yourself, "I lived through 

this horror. I can take the next thing that

comes along." --Eleanor Roosevelt

 

 

WHY IS COURAGE SO IMPORTANT?

 

Courage, like confidence is a chance to breathe in hope and to let clarity set in. We cannot change the past; but we can change our attitude. When asked of Aristotle, what is the meaning of life? He answered with confidence, "flourishing."

 

WHY IS CONFIDENCE IMPORTANT?

 

I asked my spouse shortly after he was honorably discharged from the Army right after Vietnam, why he didn't get mad as hell when people spit at him wherever we went that first year we married whenever he wore his flight jacket and Army fatigues or why wasn't he furious because he couldn't get a job? I often wondered. I still wonder. Why was he so calm? Why was his posture so straight? Why wouldn't he wear regular clothes? Why did he wear a poker face?

 

Confidence. That's all he said. Confidence. 

 

WHY DO WE DO WHAT WE DO?

 

Doctors and Nurses, First Responders. They do what they do because they were trained to do what they do because they have courage and confidence. It empowers them to take responsibility for what they learned how to do because they know, what they do, impacts everyone. 

 

Eleanor was right.  Be courageous. Stop and look fear in the face. Never miss an opportunity to breathe. Be engaged.

 

As long as you have breath, honor those who save lives. Make a contribution to life on earth. ---Patricia Feager

Awe! Thank you Lanette Branch! You made my day in the most positive way.  Whatever we do. Wherever we go. No matter what happens we must carry inside courage. confidence, compassion, and hope. As for doctors, nurses, and first repsonders, no matter how exhaused they are  they keep on giving all that they can and adapt.

George Souto I hope you viewed the video I included. There are a lot of youtubes out there now of people who witnessed the Blue Angels. Personally, I think they really are our angels on earth.

Susan Laxson CRS - the Media is a source of more than just the news. If it leans in too long, too much on depressing stories it can turn viewers into addicts. I'm glad you found something positive to watch. Lost dogs being reunited with loved ones sounds like it tugs on all the right heart strings.

Jeff Dowler, CRS - We could all use some unforgettable stories. The Blue Angels is exactly what our country needs now!  Something about nurses and doctors that amazes me, despite the hard parts, is their ability to be amazed by the miracle of life despite adversities.

Debra Leisek - Looking back now, I closed one door of High School education and opened up the door to the real world during the Vietnam era. That's when true education began to unfold. You can learn a lot about reading, writing, and arithmetic, but moral choices and ethics ring louder than school bells. Fast forward to today's current affairs, I'm understanding more now than ever before. For example, moral ideas are an essential component of a society's identity and existence. Having courage, confidence, and the capacity to make the right choice without fear or intimidation is very American. Propaganda, jumping on the wrong bandwagons, paying attention to rumors, lies and deceptions, that's just not what soldiers died for. Morally it is right to have your dignity and respect.

Andrew Mooers | 207.532.6573 - Thank you. As far as 'everyone should be a veteran,' I can only speak from personal experience and that is it was a humbling experience. An awakening. Things I struggled with are: give a soldier a gun, train a soldier to fly a helicopter, expect a soldier to go to war - but don't give them a job when they return was the biggest mistake our country made. Thankfully, from what I see, things have changed but we still have a long ways to go. 

Regarding heroes, I believe there are many silent heroes among us every day. Now that our world has been infected with this deadly virus, will common courtesy, respect, and courage prevail? Let's hope that profound changes that needed to be made, will be made, especially for seniors and people who need to work because without adequate necessities or income, how can basic needs be met?

Debb Janes EcoBroker and Bernie Stea JD - My first feature in "YouTube Thursdays." How exciting!!! Thank you!

I hope the flyover Peace Health in Vancouver did occur this morning and that there will be more sightings all over the United States. For me, it's an honor to know they can do this and ordinary people can feel something good inside without having to pay for an event or attended crowded place. We are all overdue for nice surprises, especially our doctors, nurses, and First Responders. Cheers and peace for our wonderful Blue Angels!!!

We had a flyover here in Phoenix as well. I am a HUGE fan of the Blue Angels and had the privilege of working at one of their shows when I was a member of the Bethesda Chevy Chase Rescue Squad. We got to go to the briefing with the team (pilots, crew, etc.) and got a close up "tour" of one of their jets which was really a treat. It was also sobering to discuss what to do in the event of a crash.

Here I am with the (BERT) Bicycle Emergency Response Team at Andrews Air Force Base in MD (I am on the far left in the photo.)

What an honor it is to know you and to see you in this photograph! Thank you, for sharing and for your services. That plane is absolutely beautiful!!!

Patricia, I join you in your salute to Anthony Kirlew!

We also had fly-overs here in Charlotte and you guessed it, I had the proverbial goose bumps! I was thrilled to hear that they were going to be doing the fly-over in NC and especially during Nurse's Week. 

There are so many positives to be found - even now - we just have to open our hearts and minds and they will be flooded with more blessings than we know what to do with! 

Here is the belly of the plane that went over my house on Thursday during the salute. I swear we could have reached up and touched the belly of that plane!

So cool to honor the 75th Anniversary of VE day.  We had a flyover- same one as Anthony (LOL) and unfortunately, I Missed it!  I was sick about it. Had it on my calendar, never heard them and went outside too late.  Ugh!  Good thing your association has that video to share!  Very cool!  Love your quotes by the way.
