A college professor, an avowed Atheist, was teaching his class. He shocked several of his students when he flatly stated he was going to prove there was no God. Addressing the ceiling, he shouted: "God, if you are real, then I want you to knock me off this platform. I'll give you 15 minutes!"

The lecture room fell silent. You could have heard a pin fall. Ten minutes went by. Again he taunted God, saying, "Here I am, God. I'm still waiting."

His count-down got down to the last couple of minutes when a Marine just released from active duty and newly registered in the class - walked up to the professor, hit him full force in the face, and sent him tumbling from his lofty platform. The professor was out cold! At first, the students were shocked and babbled in confusion.

The young Marine took a seat in the front row and sat silently. The class fell silent...waiting.

Eventually, the professor came to, shaken. He looked at the young Marine in the front row. When the professor regained his senses and could speak he asked: "What's the matter with you? Why did you do that?"

"God was busy. He sent me."

Please let your son and his comrades know that words cannot express our heartfelt thanks and goodwishes. We will continue to pray for them and to lend our support in whatever ways are possible.

That is exactly what I would like to do.Unfortunately, what little news they get is from sources like CNN (the Clinton or Crescent News Network) ,which is about as liberal and left slanted as you can get.

My family and I send our best wishes and our deepest heartfelt gratitude for the work your son and his fellow soldiers are doing. As long as there is a breath in me I will defend our soldiers honor to any one that questions it. So far in my home town there is nothing but praise for our military. God richly bless you and God speed for a safe return.

Words are so ineffectual in expressing our most heartfelt thanks and gratitude for your son's service. May God hold him safe in His hands, guide him, and provide him with strength.
