A junior high teacher I had is still helping kids to feel good and have fun 

With a temperature in the high 80s and the sun beating down, the afternoon was scorching. Not many people were outside when Milton Kitchen pulled up to the intersection of 27th Street and Kansas Avenue at 4 p.m.
But with the help of his assistant, Anna Hatterle, 17, he connected a short fire hose to the hydrant on the corner, turned on the water and watched as it started spraying from a special U-shaped sprinkler connected to the other end of the hose.
And before long, kids started arriving.
Some came running up in swimsuits, some in jean shorts. Moms came and sat on the sidewalk chatting as their kids splashed through the water, filled water balloons and tossed them. Meanwhile, Kitchen scanned the halfblock stretch blocked off for the hydrant party, reminding kids to walk so they wouldn’t slip in the water.

( Billy’s thoughts – Mr. Kitchen was an art teacher of mine at Morton Middle school. Even though I was not good at art he was one of my favorite teachers because he made kids feel good about them selfs. I don’t know if he will ever see this or that he remembers me but thanks Mr. Kitchen. If you want to read how thus retired teacher is still helping kids to have fun click on the link below. )

Circus-themed summer camp gives kids with cancer, blood disorders chance to feel normal

  

It had been a few years since Mavrick Houston had seen the circus.
But last week, the 11-year-old Omaha boy was a part of the show.
Staring straight ahead with outstretched arms, Mavrick slowly placed one shoe in front of the other on a 2-foot high tightrope and tried not to fall off.
“It’s harder than you think,” Mavrick said with a sly smile. “It’s just fun to try to walk across the wire and try to keep your balance.”

Justice office and Obama have it backwards on Planned Parenthood

I don’t know about you but I have a difficult time understanding the actions of some leaders in D.C. Take for example the Justice DEPARTMENT which HAS ANNOUNCED IT WILL INVESTIGATE THE CENTER FOR MEDICAL PROGRESS FOR ITS EXPOSURE OF TWO PLANNED PARENTHOOD OFFICIALS WHO WERE SEEN NEGOTIATING THE SALE OF BABY ORGANS FOLLOWING AN ABORTION while enjoying their lunch.         The JUSTICE Office WON’T BE LOOKING INTO THE VIOLATION OF FEDERAL LAW WHICH PROHBITS THE SELLING OF FETAL ORGANS, JUST THE PEOPLE WHO REVEALED IT. That sounds backwards to me.What about you?

This is sick. This is what happens to a culture and world who rejects the truth which teaches all human life is made in the image of God.As a great teacher in another time said when men stop believing in God the danger is not that they will believe in nothing but the danger is they will believe in anything.

President Obama is proving once again he is the most anti life President in the history of our nation. Once as a State Senator he voted AGAINST A BORN ALIVE LAW THAT WOULD HAVE PROTECTED CHILDREN WHO SURVIVE AN ABORTION BECAUSE THE INTENT OF THE WOMAN WAS TO KILL THE CHILD. As President he has asked God to bless BLESS PLANNED PARENTHOOD. That is sick along with the President’s radical anti life views.

What do you think ?

Until next time

The Pope is embracing the views of an atheist

A climate scientist is concerned that the Pope is aligning himself with secularists rather than theologians over so-called global warming.  
Dr. William Briggs, an adjunct professor at Cornell University, studies the philosophy of science and has been keeping a close eye on the environmental views of Pope Francis.

Boy Scouts Lifts Ban on Gay Employees, Troop Leaders

The Boy Scouts of America announced Monday that it’s lifting the ban on gay adults as Scout leaders.
“On Monday July 27 the national executive board ratified a resolution removing the national restriction on openly gay leaders and employees,” Boy Scouts of America President Robert Gates said in a video statement on Monday.
The move has been in the works for weeks. This month, the 

 organization’s executive committee adopted a resolution that would change the policy.
“This resolution will allow chartered organizations to select adult leaders without regard to sexual orientation, continuing Scouting’s longstanding policy of chartered organizations selecting their leaders,” the Boy Scouts said in a statement July 13.
“This change allows Scouting’s members and parents to select local units, chartered to organizations with similar beliefs, that best meet the needs of their families. This change would also respect the right of religious chartered organizations to continue to choose adult leaders whose beliefs are consistent with their own,” it read.
LGBT advocacy groups have said the change doesn’t go far enough.

TRUMP NO LONGER EVEN PRETENDS TO BE A REPUBLICAN

Scott Walker’s budget reforms in Wisconsin are one of modern conservatism’s greatest success stories. So why would Donald Trump attack them? Because 1) he is not a Republican, and 2) he is not a conservative. Trump went after Walker yesterday:
“Wisconsin is in turmoil,” Trump told a boisterous crowd at a rally in Iowa. He pointed to the state’s roads, schools and hospitals, which he said were all “a disaster.”
This is the kind of smear the Democrats perpetrate against Walker, but why would any Republican join them? This, too, is straight out of the left-wing playbook:
“A guy like Bush, a guy like Walker, are controlled by the people who give them money,” Trump said. “They will be bombarded by their lobbyists who donated a lot.”
