President Bush's Visit to Enterprise Alabama


The email below was sent to me by a friend who lives in Enterprise, Alabama. It was written by someone in Enterprise. She is relaying a message told by an ABI officer who attends Ridgecrest Baptist Church in Enterprise. The officer was with President Bush when he visited.

--------

There is a man at Ridgecrest who is an ABI officer. He got up last night and told us about having the honor of being paired with one of the secret service men who were with President Bush Saturday in Enterprise. He said when they started walking through the rubble at the school they came upon four students waiting for the President.

They were in an area where on the floor there was a emblem that read EHS Class of 65. When the President approached the students he asked which one of you is the president (I assume president of the student body)? One of of the girls kind of raised her hand and said I am then she hung her head and started to cry. President Bush wrapped his arms around her and the other three joined them. Barry, the ABI officer said President Bush started to cry and said "It's tough being the president isn't it." Barry said he talked with them a little longer. He said he was very close to the President but couldn't hear every word that was spoken, but he could tell that the President was quoting scripture.

After a while the President started walking again and said he wanted the emblem preserved whatever it took. The Mayor then spoke up and said they would take care of it and President Bush turned to him and said "I was speaking to the President." I bet that the Mayor closed his mouth then!!! and then President Bush said "by the way where are my children"? The four students who were lagging behind came running up to him and walked the rest of the way over to the church with him. The media were sent to a different area Barry said. When President Bush got inside the church to meet with the families of those that had been killed the secret serviceman turned to Barry and said this is as far as we go. This is his time with them.

Barry then asked him if the President was protected and the secret servicemen said yes, he is protected, but not by us. Barry could hardly contain himself as he was telling us this last night. He said he told the secret service man that he wished everyone could witness what he just did, then they could see that the most powerful man in the United States was just another human being, a father, a comforter, a friend and had true compassion for these people. However the media does not portray that, big surprise! Of course I don't tell this story with the humility that Barry did because he was there, but I thought you might like to hear it.

    This sounds like a bunch of wishful thinking nonsense for peopole who cannot face Bush for the disaster he is. Sorry to wreck the party but the man is a destructive fool. Defend the U.S. Constitution from these madmen before it is too late.

    You won't approve it because honest commentary from the outside world is just too hard to take.

    Anonymous,

    One of the reasons why I started this blog over a year ago was to share some positive news with the world rather than negative. Comments like yours are always welcome here. I realize that everything in the "outside" world isn't always positive. But, that is the reason why 99% of the news media is focused on bad and negative news. It's what most viewers want to see and hear.

    I don't have a problem with that. I just choose to report on positive news instead.

    Thanks for your comments though. Good or bad, they're always welcome.

    J.
