Easter Services at the Resurrected Mojave Veterans Memorial Cross

by lewwaters

mojave-cross-photo02Shortly after the end of World War One, a small group of Veterans erected a plain, simple cross in the middle of the vast expanse of the Mojave Desert, far away from civilization to honor their fallen brethren.

The wooden cross erected in what was open land in 1934, sat silently in the desert, subjected to the weather, occasional vandals but maintained by those Veterans and later by friends of the Veterans.

The land was made part of a Federal Reserve in 1994 and due to deterioration of the original wooden cross, caretakers replaced it with a metal cross, somehow enraging a park ranger, Frank Buono who waited until he retired on a comfortable taxpayer paid pension, to seek the assistance of the ACLU to file a lawsuit to have it removed.

Happy Easter From The President

by lewwaters

The most under-appreciated President in modern time, belittled, demonized and slandered stood tall on his last Easter in office and delivered the following message to the nation.

Happy Easter Message from President George W. Bush, 2008:
I am the resurrection and the life. He who believes in me will live, even though he dies.” John 11:25

Laura and I send greetings to all those celebrating the joyful holiday of Easter. The Resurrection of Jesus Christ reminds people around the world of the presence of a faithful God who offers a love more powerful than death. Easter commemorates our Savior’s triumph over sin, and we take joy in spending this special time with family and friends and reflecting on the many blessings that fill our lives. During this season of renewal, let us come together and give thanks to the Almighty who made us in His image and redeemed us in His love.

On this glorious day, we remember our brave men and women in uniform who are separated from their families by great distances. We pray for their safety and strength, and we honor those who gave their lives to advance peace and secure liberty across the globe.

Happy Easter. May God bless you, and may God bless our great Nation.
GEORGE W. BUSH.”

Happy Easter everyone. Pray for our nation.

To our Jewish friends, Happy Passover. Mo`adim lesimha
