Default Bump in the Road

Got this in an email. Thought I'd share.


"A bump in the road" .... remember that calloused statement?

I don't know the author of this poem … received it today. Very
thought provoking and poignant. I do recall, however, the President
referring to the Benghazi incident as "a bump in the road." Today I
heard an ex-Navy Seal being interviewed on Fox News regarding a book
he has written about how to handle crisis situations in our lives. At
the end of the interview he asked if he could make a comment on
Benghazi and of course the anchor said yes. He then thanked Fox News
for keeping the Benghazi story in the news, since other news
organizations are not. He said the Seals who died deserve the public
knowing the truth about the whole affair.
The poem was written by a MARINE CORPS Officer (ANON).


We're the battling boys of Benghazi
No fame, no glory, no paparazzi.
Just a fiery death in a blazing hell
Defending our country we loved so well.

It wasn't our job, but we answered the call,
fought to the Consulate and scaled the wall.
We pulled twenty Countrymen from the jaws of fate
Led them to safety, and stood at the gate.

Just the two of us, and foes by the score,
But we stood fast to bar the door.
Three calls for reinforcement, but all were denied,
So we fought, and we fought, and we fought ‘til we died.

We gave our all for our Uncle Sam,
But Barack Obama didn't give a damn.
Just two dead seals who carried the load
No thanks to us..........we were just "Bumps In The Road".

Those bumps and ripples in the fabric of our flag made this country great.Obama in four years has tried to apologize for the Flag of our nation.Jail him for treason.We can not forget the men who died there or it will be repeated over and over.

Thanks for sharing, Special Ops solders are a breed of there own. Without them we are lost... God Bless those who carry out the missions and give the ultimate sacrifice..... Concealed 27
The laws that forbid the carrying of arms are laws of such a nature. They disarm only those who are neither inclined nor determined to commit crimes.... Such laws make things worse for the assaulted and better for the assailants; they serve rather to encourage than to prevent homicides, for an unarmed man may be attacked with greater confidence than an armed man."
Thomas Jefferson
