    "Oh, that is all well and good, but, voice or no voice, the people can always be brought to the bidding of the leaders. That is easy. All you have to do is tell them they are being attacked and denounce the pacifists for lack of patriotism and exposing the country to danger. It works the same way in any country."

    [OMG!] FORWARD THIS TO EVERYONE YOU KNOW

    With cold weather besieging North America and Heart Day fast approaching, I feel obliged to warm up everybody with another...

    ONE OF THE BEST STORIES I'VE EVER HEARD!!!!!!




    His name was Fleming, and he was a poor Scottish farmer. One day,
    while trying to eke out a
    living for his family, he heard a cry for help
    coming from a nearby bog.
    He dropped his tools and ran to the bog.
    There, mired to his
    waist in black muck, was a terrified boy, screaming
    and struggling to free himself. Farmer Fleming saved the lad from what
    could have been a slow and
    terrifying death.


    The next day, a fancy carriage pulled up to the Scotsman's sparse
    surroundings.
    An elegantly dressed nobleman stepped out and introduced
    himself as the father of the boy Farmer Fleming
    had saved.

    "I want to repay you," said the nobleman. "You saved my son's life."

    "No, I can't accept payment for what I did," the Scottish farmer replied,
    waving off the offer.

    At that moment, the farmer's own son came to the door of the family
    hovel.
    "Is that your son?" the nobleman asked.

    "Yes!!" the farmer said proudly.

    "I will make you a deal.
    Let me take him and give him a good education.
    If the lad is anything like his father, he'll grow to a man you can be proud
    of."


    And that he did.In time, Farmer Fleming's son graduated from St. Mary's
    Hospital Medical
    School in London, and went on to become known
    throughout the world as the noted
    Sir Alexander Fleming, the discoverer
    of Penicillin.


    Years afterward, the nobleman's son was stricken with pneumonia.
    What saved him? Penicillin.

    The name of the nobleman?
    Lord Randolph Churchill. His son's
    name?
    Sir Winston Churchill. Someone once said: What goes around
    comes around.
    Work like you don't need the money. Love like you've
    never been hurt.
    Dance like nobody's watching.

    One more thing we have in common, we always see the silver lining. Speaking of which, ever noticed any silver lining in his hair?
