A Quick Note On Something More Important

I’m in the middle of an 80 hour work week here so this will be quick.

No matter how bad things may be for you in your daily grind, things could be worse. You could be a wounded warrior trying to learn how to live without hands, or arms. Imagine if a simple task like checking your e-mail or reading a blog is no longer possible for you. Well we all know that our brave war fighters won’t let something like that keep them down, but that’s still a huge obstacle to overcome. Fortunately there is someone to help, because no matter how brave and resolute you are, everyone needs help sometime. For these men there’s Project Valour IT. As I’m sure many of you are aware, every year the fantastic folks at Soldier’s Angels launch a fund raiser to buy voice activated laptops for our warriors who need them due to their injuries.

I can think of few charities more worthy of your hard earned money. So if you can spare some scratch, and I think all of us, no matter how bad things may be, can spare a little something to those who have given so much for us, please hit the link above.

Best part is that you can choose which branch you want to contribute to in honor of. A friendly inter service rivalry for a fantastic cause.

So that’s it pups. Back to the grind for me. Well, after I hit the link for Team Marine Corps anyway.

That is all, carry on.

    Crunchie, have you heard what Stevie Nicks has been doing up at Bethesda and Walter Reed?

    You wouldn’t believe it but she’s dipped into her own pocket and donated over 5000 Ipods to the wounded.

    Go Here. Now. The warrior song project.

    For all of you out there…

    No matter what branch of the United States Armed Forces you serve under or have served under, this song is dedicated to you.

    “The Warrior Song” is currently for sale to the public on iTunes for .99 cents. Every purchase supports members of the United States military, as the profits derived from its sale will be donated to the Armed Forces Relief Trust, to be dispersed by, and at the discretion of, the respective charities operated by the Navy/Marines, Army, Coast Guard, Air Force, and National Guard.

    Active duty and former servicemen and women can receive a free copy via email by simply requesting one.

    Your support is invaluable. To help, all you have to do is buy a copy of the song on iTunes.

    A disclosure section will be posted on this website, so that you can see exactly what’s being donated to charity, and know how much progress is being made.

    There is no goal.

    The support of America’s Warriors is an ongoing responsibility.

    LYRICS

    I’ve got the reach and the teeth of a killin’ machine,

    with a need to bleed you when the light goes green

    best believe, I’m in a zone to be, from my Yin to my Yang to my Yang Tze

    put a grin on my chin when you come to me,

    ‘cuz I’ll win, I’m a one-of-a-kind and I’ll bring death

    to the place you’re about to be: another river of blood runnin’ under my feet

    forged in a fire lit long ago, stand next to me, you’ll never stand alone

    I’m last to leave, but the first to go, Lord, make me dead before you make me old

    I feed on the fear of the devil inside of the enemy faces in my sights:

    aim with the hand, shoot with the mind, kill with a heart like arctic ice

    I am a soldier and I’m marching on

    I am a warrior and this is my song

    I bask in the glow of the rising war, lay waste to the ground of an enemy shore

    wade through the blood spilled on the floor, and if another one stands I’ll kill some more

    bullet in the breach and a fire in me, like a cigarette thrown, to gasoline

    if death don’t bring you fear, I swear, you’ll fear these marchin’ feet

    Come to the nightmare, come to me, deep down in the dark where the devil be

    in the maw with the jaws and the razor teeth,

    where the brimstone burns and the angel weeps

    call to the gods if I cross your path and my silhouette hangs like a body bag

    hope is a moment now long past, the shadow of death is the one I cast.

    I am a soldier and I’m marching on

    I am a warrior and this is my song

    my eyes are steel and my gaze is long

    I am a warrior and this is my song

    now I live lean and I mean to inflict the grief,

    and the least of me is still out of your reach

    the killing machine’s gonna do the deed,

    until the river runs dry and my last breath leaves

    chin in the air with a head held high,

    I’ll stand in the path of the enemy line

    feel no fear, know my pride:

    for God and Country I’ll end your life

    I am a soldier and I’m marching on

    I am a warrior and this is my song

    my eyes are steel and my gaze is long

    I am a warrior and this is my song

    I wish I could help.

    My own situation is unfortunately pretty desperate – to the point of being pretty close to losing my house.

    Too bad there’s no fundraiser for unemployed bloggers … or even a way to make selling ads work. I made exactly $0 the last time I tried that.

    I do have a “donate” button, though … hint hint.

    Problem is, in this economy, who has any money to help anyone else? These soldiers are far more deserving than I, and I hope this effort to help them is successful.

    Please excuse my depressed rant … I’ll be my smiling self again in the morning.
