We honor our men and women in Harms Way because they are in harm's way.  Knowing the risk, each of them volunteered to pick up that rucksack.

That's why this girl's sign - You're our Heroes! - is deserved.  To place yourself in harm's way for others is the very definition of heroic.  Despite the best efforts of Hollywood and the Academy, this is still appreciated by people today.  They feel it in their bones, even these girls in Massachusetts.
Nurture your minds with great thoughts. To believe in the heroic makes heroes.
- Benjamin Disreali

Those are Girl Scouts. Like the Boy Scouts, there are still groups for young people that continue to teach and instill the values that made this country great.

Quite naturally, the freaking liberals want to outlaw such "radical" groups like the Boy Scouts, Girl Scouts, Explorers, et al.

I'm really, really, really getting sick and tired of the liberals and after Obama was anointed, I started getting right back in their faces.

Basically, liberals are a lot of hot air with no spine.
