Hyph-a-Nation splits a Nation.

Never been a big fan of Hyphans. I’m certainly not looking  forward to the Hyphan on my tombstone 19??-20??Hyphans seperate things they don’t join them. Hyphans are minus signs not positive signs. NativeMinusAmerican, AfricanMinusAmerican, MexicanMinusAmerican. What’s that about? I’m an American. I believe in God, Country and Tom Landry’s Dallas Cowboys. Of course I’m a Texan 1st. So like Hillary – Rodam – Clinton  – – – I guess I’m a Texan-American-Mexican.
Just who invented that seperator? I’d like to know what the guy was thinking. The only dash I like was a disc jockey on the Beverly Hillbilies named Dash Rip Rock. I liked that Dash. There has been an article on the Internet ever since the Internet was  in Bill Gates womb. It’s called the  Dash. Here it is. Enjoy.
Oh and lets think about subtracting  the Minus sign from the dividing line  and put American first in our lives.

The Dash Poem

by Linda Ellis

I read of a man who stood to speak
At the funeral of a friend
He referred to the dates on her tombstone
From the beginning to the end

He noted that first came the date of her birth
And spoke the following date with tears,
But he said what mattered most of all
Was the dash between those years

For that dash represents all the time
That she spent alive on earth.
And now only those who loved her
Know what that little line is worth.

For it matters not how much we own;
The cars, the house, the cash,
What matters is how we live and love
And how we spend our dash.

So think about this long and hard.
Are there things you’d like to change?
For you never know how much time is left,
That can still be rearranged.

If we could just slow down enough
To consider what’s true and real
And always try to understand
The way other people feel.

And be less quick to anger,
And show appreciation more
And love the people in our lives
Like we’ve never loved before.

If we treat each other with respect,
And more often wear a smile
Remembering that this special dash
Might only last a little while.

So, when your eulogy is being read
With your life’s actions to rehash
Would you be proud of the things they say
About how you spent your dash?

    I remember a very cold and grey December day. I was 17 at the time.
    I was waiting for the bus when I see a very young woman walk up with her new born in a stroller.
    At that very moment I made a promise to myself, “My wife and kids will never have to wait for the bus on a cold and grey day.”
    This is one promise that I have kept very close to my heart.
    It’s amazing how a single moment, not witnessed by any other, can have such a profound affect on one’s life. Now 20+ years later I find myself still working hard to keep this promise to myself.

    I can only hope that I’ve made the right choices.
