Published

We are so grateful for our men and women in uniform, who are willing to sacrifice all the comforts of home to serve our nation overseas.

Undoubtedly, the sacrifice they make is the agonizingly long deployments they spend separated from their families, something that young children often struggle to understand and cope with.

Parents are their children’s entire world, so to be separated from a father or mother for such a long stretch of time can surely be a challenge for a little one.

Of course, even for the youngest child, he can always let his yearning to see his parent again soon be made to God, which one little Naval son recently spent his father’s deployment doing.

What a blessing it must have been when his mother told him that God had heard his prayers!

Hello Christian reports:

After finally being allowed to return home from military service overseas, Navy E-6 MA1 Jose Nunez planned a heartwarming homecoming surprise for his sons, whom he hadn’t seen in a year, at their school.

When the big day finally came, Nunez’s 7-year-old, Jean-Paul, was in a hallway with classmates. “Papi, do you remember everything we’ve been praying for lately?” his mother, Ximena Nunez asked.

“Daddy,” Jean-Paul said, smiling.

“For Daddy to come home? Well, guess what?” Ximena said. “God listened!”

Boys get the homecoming they prayed for

Rest in peace, amigo.

When it comes to gritty guitars and even grittier songs, there is no act quite like that little ol’ band from Texas. ZZ Top mainlined American blues standards directly into the electric era of 1970’s rock, and then reinvented the genre once again with the synthesizers of the 1980’s.  From there, the band toured the world incessantly, bringing their grimy grooves and unforgettable stage presence to audiences from Dusseldorf to Delaware. Now, just weeks before the band was set to take to the road once again, one member of the holy triumvirate of honky-tonk has passed away. Dusty Hill, the bassist for ZZ Top, has died. He was 72. Billy Gibbons and Frank Beard of the Texas-based trio issued a statement to Variety on Tuesday, writing: “We are saddened by the news today that our Compadre, Dusty Hill, has passed away in his sleep at home in Houston, TX. We, along with legions of ZZ Top fans around the world, will miss your steadfast presence, your good nature and enduring commitment to providing that monumental bottom to the ‘Top’. We will forever be connected to that ‘Blues Shuffle in C.’” And then, echoing the sentiments of music fans the nation over: “You will be missed greatly, amigo,” the statement added. We couldn’t have said it better ourselves, so we’ll just leave you all with a classic. Make sure to turns those speakers up, y’all. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=s5WB5ouP-8c

Mask Mandates Coming Back to Capitol Hill After CDC Switcheroo

This isn’t likely to go over well with some lawmakers.

With the “delta” variant now raging in some parts of the country, and breakthrough infections of vaccinated individuals continuing to be reported, the CDC has made a stark decision, stating that even vaccinated folks should be wearing a mask when they are indoors or in parts of the country with high COVID transmission rates. This has now prompted the House of Representatives to bring back a previously criticized policy themselves. Capitol Attending Physician Brian Monahan said late Tuesday that the House of Representatives is reinstating its mask mandate – and therefore the threat of fines to members who don’t comply – following updated guidance from the Centers from Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) on the delta variant of the coronavirus. The White House also appears to be going back to mandated masks. A White House press representative was seen Tuesday swapping a sign saying people are required to wear masks if unvaccinated with another saying masks are required regardless of vaccination status. Monahan didn’t leave much room for interpretation. “For the Congress, representing a collection of individuals traveling weekly from various risk areas (both high and low rates of disease transmission), all individuals should wear a well-fitted, medical-grade filtration mask (for example an ear loop surgical mask or a KN95 mask) when they are in an interior space,” Monahan said in a letter sent to congressional staffers. The move will almost certainly see pushback from the far right side of the aisle, where the mandating of masks has been a very unpopular policy, and a point of contention in almost every arena in which it has been implemented.
